Thank you for your support and care,

RIP Ron Hynes. My musical hero. The greatest songwriter I ever met.
Ron Hynes was our poet. He wrote songs that told the story of who Newfoundlanders were, are, and becoming. This is such a loss. RIP.
It would be a kind comfort – if some kind soul – would carry this cross for a while.. Ron Hynes … See ya on the other side brother.
Ron Hynes has left us. Godspeed to Cryers Paradise. The lights went out downtown. St. John’s is dark tonight and so it should be.
Wow. Very saddened to hear the of Ron Hynes’ passing. An absolute legend …a huge loss.
