(Re: “Pastor Ron Pierre Vignec brought peace and the poetry of service to Salish,” TW 11-15-13): My wife, Ann, and I had the privilege of meeting Ron and Nancy 25 years ago. We supported Pastor Ron's Mission Church and worshiped there as often as we could. Why? Because Pastor Ron was the greatest earthly "Shepard-of-his-flock" we had ever known. And, we have known many.
One of the most important features of Pastor Ron's life and death is this ...while Pastor Ron didn't "store-up treasures" down here on Earth, he has left behind many local “heroes-of-faith” whom he first nurtured. Names that come to my mind are those like Norma, Ms. Cory, Lesta Rodgers, Christine, "Big-L" Lawrence Stone and many more names, too numerous to list. Tacoma folks, you are perhaps the most fortunate of cities ...because God blessed you with residents like Pastor Ron (and Nancy) Vignec.
