  • Lance Mora says:

    Four more days and it will be ten months since you left and its still hard not to tear up. From time to time i still walk in expecting you to be there when i get home from school… Love you and miss you always.

  • Brenda Eldredge says:

    Uncle Ron, ‘goodbye’ is too hard to say, so I will replace those words with I Love You!

  • Kristine Lemke says:

    Oh Dad, what do I say? My heart is heavy. I was so blessed to have you as my father and Lance’s grandfather. You will forever remain a part of us and I will carry you with me always. I know you are up in heaven now smiling down on us. It gives me some comfort to know that you are with mom and grandma and grandpa again. Please give them a hug for me and tell them I love them. I love you Dad!

  • Gregory and Kookye Williams says:

    Ron you will be missed so much by the Williams family. Our hearts and prayers are with the family. Knowing you are with your wife and our almighty FATHER gives us all some comfort because you are home. Love you Ron so very much! The Williams

  • Irene Eldredge says:

    You were taken from us far too soon. Even though your work here on earth must have been completed in the eyes of God, there is so much that was left to do and share. You have always been the ideal brother any sister could ask for, and I will miss you until we are together again.

  • Perry Kallevig says:

    I had the opportunity to baptize Ron Blackston in the Jordan River in Israel in 2012. He attended Harvest Church in Elk Grove since 1997 and ran PowerPoint for me for 11 years in hundreds of services. Ron surprised us all and passed away on Friday, April 19. Huge loss. Heaven’s gain. We love you, Ron. Pastor Perry and Barbara Kallevig and your Harvest Church family
