As I was preparing the WhatsTheT weekly wrap-up newsletter late tonight, I received word that a friend and supporter of my site had passed. I wouldn’t normally post about a followers death on my blog but there are some that leave an everlasting impression on you and Jaron “Ron” Madison was one of them.
It’s kind of ironic that I received the news of Ron’s death as I was working on the newsletter. Coincidently, before there was any real website or blog for WhatsTheT, there was just a once-a-month newsletter informing subscribers of new music and party happenings in the area. Ron was one of the first subscribers and supporters to the newsletter.
Always with a smile and an encouraging word or a joke, Jaron would be excited at the smallest announcement or new feature that I would mention and tell me his thoughts on it! And when it came time for a WhatsTheT sponsored event, Ron would be right there with a slew of his friends and associates to support.
Thank you so much for your support Ron. You don’t really think that one day you are talking with someone on a social network and the next day they are gone. My condolences go out to Ron’s family and friends.
I’m sure Ron is with the angels spreading smiles everywhere in Heaven!
