We need to keep the family in our thoughts and prayers. Many of us have received excellent training and services from CVI.

Many of you know and love Ronee Silverman David who heads up the Center for the Visually Impaired here in Daytona Beach. Ronee is one of my dearest friends and I have known her since the late eighties. 

Tragically, Ronee lost her beloved son Jayson in a fiery helicopter crash yesterday. Jayson was only in his early 40s and leaves behind a darling wife ant two young sons ages 4 and 6. Jayson and family live just up the street from Ronee. 


As you can well imagine, Ronee is simply devastated with grief! None of us can imagine losing a child and Ronee was so very close to both her son Jayson and her daughter Becky who resides in Jacksonville. 


I will attend the funeral tomorrow at noon. I know I can count on you for healing prayers for Ronee as she struggles to carry on. Jayson has been a helicopter pilot for many years and Ronee always worried about some sort of accident occurring. We mothers are just like that when it comes to our children. 


With love and a heavy heart,


Kathy Davis
