ABOUT
     Hi. My name is Ron Grillo.  I have been happily married for 37 years to my best friend and wonderful wife, Jill, and with whom every adventure in my life has been enhanced by my being able to share it with her. She brightens up our household and is always there, by my side... how lucky I am to have found her.
     We were blessed with our son, Ronnie, who is warm and caring, and certainly a son any parent would be proud to have. We are so proud of the man he has grown up to be. As all parents do, you try to instill in your children all the best that you can, but there are never any guarantees as to how our children will grow up... we can only hope and pray. As for us, our son has never has never disappointed us.
     As for the remainder of our family, I cannot leave out our fur babies:  Hermione (our dog), Hulk (our son's dog), Boss Man (our 18.6 lb cat), and our newest addition, Luna. We love them all. And in tribute to our past fur babies, our cats:  Buckwheat, Stymie, Gemini, Sable, Scooter, Hobo, we miss them all!

BACKGROUND:
     I have a multi-cultural/multi-religious background, and am a student of all of the major religions of the world and open to all persons accepting of the principles: "Treat others as you would have them treat you"; and, "We are all God's children."
     I like to describe myself as a minister of the people, someone who is just as comfortable interacting with large groups, as well as one on one. Besides performing weddings, baby blessings, memorial services, etc. ,  I also work, both from a spiritual and holistic (mind/body) perspective, with persons/families who are facing chronic and terminal illnesses, and have been doing this from 1989 to the present.
​     I have been invited to act as a visiting minister to conduct services or present a sermon at, for example, Pennybyrn at Maryfield chapel, Winston-Salem Friends (Quaker) Church, Unity Church.
     Last, but not least, I act as Minister/Animal Chaplain for individuals and families who are coping with the loss or possible loss of their animal companion(s), by providing pet blessings, celebration of life ceremonies, and bereavement support.  I also work with their remaining animal companions who also may be mourning the loss of their companion.
