    Courtesy of his sister Linda:

    the wake will be at Kimak's Funeral Home on Broad Street, Carlstadt, NJ tomorrow (Tues) 2-4 and 7-9PM. The funeral Mass will be on Wednesday at 10:30AM at St. Joseph's Church in East Rutherford, NJ. Interrment will be at Holy Cross Mausoleum in North Arlington, NJ. We are not sure yet where we are directing donations, but details should appear in tomorrows obituary in The Record. Thank you for your kind words and your friendship to Ron.

    For those of you who didn't know him, Ron Drogo was a helluva good guy. An outstanding editor, he was a great guy who always had time to show you a better way to get the job done. He had a great sense of humor as well. He will be missed.

    Ron is either laughing his ass off right now, or cussing.

    Attended the first wake. A sea of friends and loved ones.

    Open casket. My first time meeting Ron. I think he whispered that my fantasy team already sucks.

    His sisters Linda and Janet are lovely and so friendly as is his brother in law Joseph.

    Everyone glowing about Ron.

    Met BYH. Spent an hour talking. Solid guy.

    Going to attend the 2nd wake. Introduce yourself if you're going. I have red hair and am probably standing by myself since I don't know anyone.

    Heard Frank Ridgeway was at the first wake but didn't meet him

    I can't tell you how much I wish I could be there. Ron was a really special guy. I like to think that you're representing all of us.

    I wish I had known him, but what really seems classy to me is that from what I read, he was a "Bergen Catholic Guy" all the way, and his last act was to give back to the school.
