Prayers going out for Ron.
I can see him going to Home Depot, that's a normal store. The party store is questionable. What do you need at a party store that you can't get somewhere else? Oak Glen is in the foothills. Nothing up there really. A few little shops and restaurants, touristy stuff mainly. There's always something going on up there tho. It is a good place to get away from everything since it is away from everything. Maybe Amy is right, he just wanted to get away for awhile.
Keep us posted Bun.
