Their Friday wedding fulfills a similar pact they made a few years back, according to Kimberley: “Ron was talking about all his benefits through work and not having anyone to give them to.Just jokingly, I said, ‘The last one who turns 50, which would be me, if I’m not married and you’re not married, we’re just going to marry each other.’ He said, ‘Done!
(Plus an old photo of the couple.) “I would watch him come down the stairs when the high school kids were changing classes and we would wave at each other,” says Kimberley, who works in the Roseville Community School District’s youth enrichment program.
“We ended up taking a picture together and, by fall of the following school year, when I was a freshman and he was a senior, we were dating.” Like many a high school romance, this one didn’t last. So we went our separate ways,” says Ron, a safety coordinator for Xcel Energy.

organized within the Diocese of Lansing, built its first church in 1875.
Today the church, offices, and elementary school reside one block north of Main Street in downtown Flushing, Michigan.“I don’t think six months ever went by in all this time that we weren’t in contact,” says Ron. After my marriage and with me having numerous girlfriends over the years, I would always call Kim when I had something to complain about: ‘Why do women do this?’ She was my go-to person.” “He would still call my mom after all those years, wishing her a happy Mother’s Day,” says Kimberley. I would call him to take a dead hamster out of my son’s cage because I didn’t want to touch it.” According to Kimberley, the “pair of goofballs” had an unbreakable bond, one which is expressed in “their” song, REO Speedwagon’s “Keep on Loving You.” “Over the years, I would get a call that said, ‘Turn on KS95’ and there it would be or I would hear the song come on and text her and, if she didn’t answer, I’d leave the radio playing it on her phone,” says Ron.Afterward, their conversations became more frequent. Soon, Ron invited Kimberley to his hunting cabin in Finlayson, Minn. But, when she turned back, Ron was on one (very frigid) knee, holding a tiny blue Tiffany’s box.Long story short: She said “yes.” To the surprise of no one.REO could practically have been talking about them in the lyrics to that hair band classic: “When I said that I loved you, I meant that I loved you forever.” “I think we both knew, even in high school, that we were supposed to be together,” says Kimberley. He told me later he worried that, if a relationship didn’t work, we would lose one of the very best friends we ever had.” “That was a big risk,” agrees Ron. Ron iced the deal last New Year’s Eve Up North, when he suggested they investigate frozen Gooseberry Falls.
