From Lynda Scheer

From Lynda Scheer

Ron is now in hospice. On heavy pain meds, he mostly sleeps, but at times wakes up and is able to speak. The women taking (excellent!) care of him are Spanish-speaking, and he has begun to volunteer quite a few Spanish words and phrases, which delights them. Still enjoys eating--his meals are homemade and purĂ©ed. We think he would approve of the residence--a ranch house on a dusty road out in the country (fortunately only six miles from our house) with chickens out back and a Fresh Eggs sign on the front fence. Our children and me, though sad beyond words, are utterly relieved that he is in a safe place and not in pain. He wrote of our son on his blog--they were reunited for a few days and got to speak with one another. 

Love to all of Ron’s friends from Ron and his family.


Ron Scheer’s blog is called BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE and is a compendium of information about Ron’s favorite topic and you can guess what it is. He is also the author of several books about early Western novels.

Sorry to dispense so much sad news. Life is just too hard some days.

Terrible news. Ron's blog has been one of my regular stops ever since he started it. Top-notch writer and a fine man.

This is so very upsetting. I know Ron only through his fine blog and excellent writing but he is like a close relative. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. Thank you for letting us know, Patti.

Too many of our friends and acquaintances are facing Ron's situation. Like Cap'n Bob says: There's just too much of this is going around these days. He's right.

I either missed or have forgotten - what happened to Ron?

I'm so glad he got to speak with his son again. His presence in the blogging world is sadly missed.

Ron has a brain tumor that was diagnosed and operated on January 2014. He has been undergoing various treatment since then. Recently it took a turn for the worse.
I do miss his blog very much. And his presence out there.
