Michelle Evans sent this photo that was taken of her with Ron, at a house show in November. She wrote the following caption. "It was really a magical experience. I laughed and I cried during the performance. It was an honour to have seen him that night and he was so appreciative of all of us who attended. We had a chat about Bruce Springsteen and how Bruce influenced some of his music (I'm a big Springsteen fan). He sang me a part of his song and gave me a hug. He meant a lot to us Newfoundlanders and he will be dearly missed. (Submitted by Michelle Evans)
