Thanks ....I know you will be a great ambassador for the all of us here in the Foro ...
I hope the family and relatives approve of the Videos etc... and we can only see a few photos later .....

P.S. Scottish wake = whiskey , I'm sure ......maybe even Haggis , (whatever that is) .
That should be an experience in itself ....Ron would hopefully approve ..

It's only in these past few days that I really realize he's gone. One of the things in life that only hit you later on.

Devastating news. My condolences. Really decent and fair guy, qualities necessary for a popular forum administrator. My favorite (mis)quote of his was:

In Spain 1 out of 3 people do not have a job but Condes

Please excuse this nice example of taking somebody's words totally out of context.

I only just read this - very sad indeed - on the forum there are many great knowledgable people, but he was forum's fountain of wisdom. Will be sadly missed.

RE: R.I.P Ron Mitchell (Ron.M) (in reply to vigrond

Wow

I cannot even begin to describe how I feel right now... Sad, heartbroken, nostalgic, angry...

After Hurricane Isaac passed through New Orleans, I lost power for about a week. I did not have internet for about 2 weeks due to power/telephone lines being completely taken down by the winds. I just got internet back yesterday and this is the first time I check the forum. And then I notice Ron's flag in the corner, and then a post regarding Ron's funeral. I cannot believe he is gone... I am literally in tears right now.

What a crucial part of the forum he was. Ron was THE soul of the forum. I grew up in my late teenage years and 20's reading this forum and Ron was always a part of it through my upbringing. He always encouraged you, always had something interesting to say, always cracked a joke, always made you smile, and was the best mediator/member a forum could have. I never met him in person, but anyone who has been a part of a forum like this for so long knows that you develop serious relationships with people. Even if you've never seen them, they become a part of your life and you develop a place in your heart for them.

What a blow it was to read this after a long stressful day at work. At least I can say, like Richard, that I shared the engineering profession and the passionate love of Flamenco with him.

Damn it, I will miss you Ron. Love you man.

I am sorry for coming in so late, but my deepest condolences to your family.

This place will never be the same.

Man, I can't believe this... I've been away for two months and now that I'm back, Ron is gone... AC, my deepest condolences to you and your family...

I still have all the private messages from the first (and only for now) buleria challenge I was in.
He was having so much fun at the reaction of all the members at my playing.
He told me "So don't worry....just sit back and ENJOY! "

Then, we had some chats and he took the time to point me out things to work and how to work to get better...

I'll miss your humorous posts Ron, you were undoubtedly a father figure to all of us here and a pillar to this foro.

I'll never forget you.

RE: R.I.P Ron Mitchell (Ron.M) (in reply to vigrond

I came back to check the foro after a while again and i saw a thread about organising something in Andalucia "in memory of Ron" and i thought to myself ,what does Simon mean with "in memory of Ron"????!!
I searched the Foro and found this thread.
I can't believe it. Totally shocked and very very sad.
He was so young at heart.
Such a great person. So much fun we had in the foro.
I still need time to realise this.
My deepest condolences to you and family.

RE: R.I.P Ron Mitchell (Ron.M) (in reply to acmitchell

It has been a while since I last visited the Foro, so it was quite a shock to learn that Ron has passed away.
GJ has already expressed the same things I felt and more, but I still want to add my condolences to all the others.
I loved Ron for his love for music, for mankind, his outspokenness, and I remember how sorry I felt when he wrote how heartbroken he was when his love had left him. And now he has left us, heartbroken.

I've been having some rough times, nearly giving up on music because of problems with my hands, so I've had a long break from the foro. Now I come back to this...

It's a shock. Feels like being hit by a heavy brick. I'm lost for words. I liked the guy very much. This is one of those moments that makes you feel pushed by the heavy hand of time, a sad point of no return.

I'll remember you, Ron.

This is very sad news. I am new to the forum really and had a bit of time away, but this was such a shock when I returned. I hope Ron has lots of fun at the juergas up there. Don't rest in peace, Ron, make a right racket! x

Terrible news. I am very sad. Ron was such a great guy and I will miss him greatly. I am sorry I have been overtaken by life and not noticed this earlier... I thought I would be reading something from Ron today and instead find otherwise. Ron, rest in peace. I can't think of anything else to say. I am speechless.

I am very sorry to hear this.
Ron was synonyme to me for foroflamenco, a nice warm character with some spicy juice.

To you Ron: "Give me another 40 years or so, and I might be able to show you that alzapua when I get there....if not, we'll have one!

Cheers!

Hello,

I've trying to get myself back into flamenco and have been away from this foro for too long. I'm very sad to learn today that Ron has passed. I loved reading all of his posts. You will be missed very much Ron. We shall all meet again.

Cheers!
Mark

RE: R.I.P Ron Mitchell (Ron.M) (in reply to vigrond

As beeing away and returning to this forum, I see I´ve been away too long. It´s sad news to read that Ron has passed away. Some years ago I bought his flamenco metronome that helped me and my guitar pupils. I had some problems in the beginning and Ron helped directly via email. A short time later I´ve found this foro flamenco and met him again. After a longer period of a playing pause due to job commitments I´ve just made a new start on the guitar and bought last week some strings and the G7th capo. So my thoughts of the Flamenco Master metronome were present and I was thinking of Ron. Now I´m here reading this shocking news posted in august.

Unbelievable, I´m speechless. May God let shine His blessings to Ron´s family.
Deepest condelences belated.

Bernd

Thank you everyone for all your messages!

Whenever I get sad or really miss my Dad it's always so comforting to come on here and read all your lovely messages. It really does mean a lot.

I am so grateful for this forum and to the fabulous members who have given me so much support when I have needed it most.

After writing this soppy post I think I'll eat a rock sandwich or wrestle a shark or do some other tough guy activities..

I hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying this beautiful Summer!

Hi AC,

Ron is with us, having a laugh and a moan at our antics. Coming up to a year now and he is often in my thoughts as are you.

I often think of Ron as well. Just the other day I re-read a private message he sent me. He'd told me something I'd posted had him pissing himself laughing for days. One of my better contributions no doubt. My license:
