So sorry to hear of the passing of Ronald Silverblatt. While I never had the pleasure of meeting the man and engaging in conversation with him, I have no doubt we would have become fast friends. I too am a lifelong, upper echelon sales professional who enjoyed the verbal interaction involved in the sales dynamic. I could visualize Ron telling a story and engaging in laughter with friends and family. A good sense of humor and the ability to create joy and laughter are invaluable in this crazy journey called life. I know Ron's joyous presence and personality will be missed deeply. I can see a good view into his bright soul through his beloved Annie. My deepest sympathies and heartfelt prayers go out to Annie and the entire Silverblatt family. Cherish and remember the good times and the special recollection you have of Ron. I have no doubt they are many. Relish them. ...with all my thoughts and prayers, David Lawrence Snyder
