Sorry to hear this we as BYU fans are praying for the whole U family and Ron's
family during this tragic time!
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ron, his family and the team. Tragedies like
this really put the game into prespective. I hope the best for all involved.
Thoughts and prayers go out to Ron and he and his wife's families.
Sometimes we realize that there is more to life than entertainment.Our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected.RIP.
As a BYU fan my prayers will be with the Tongaonevai's family, what sad and
tragic ending, it puts things into perspective, and really football doesn't
What a terrible tragedy. I pray that the Lord will bless and comfort you, Ron,
during this time of sadness and mourning for your wife. A tragedy like this puts
everything, including the silly BYU-Utah rivalry, into perspective.
Sad, sad, sad news! Hey coach, you cancel the film review if your
thoughts are really with Ron and his family. .....that's just my opinion.
This is awful. I am so sorry for this young man and his family. I hope they find
some comfort but there is no doubt this will be a very hard thing for this
family to overcome. Football is meaningless when compared to a family. This is
very sad to hear.
Sorry to hear about this news. This is horrible. Life is so precious so don't
forget to tell your family how much you love them. Football means nothing at
This is horrible news. My deepest sympathies to Ron and his family.
All our love and condolences to Ron and his family from me any my family in
Ohio. Families are forever.
Very sad. Condolences to husband and the Ute team.
I can't imagine going through a loss like that. My heart and prayers are with
Ron, and his family. This BYU fan is praying for the best for you. Be there for
I'm a huge Cougar fan, bleed blue thru and thru but when a tragedy like this
occurs it goes way beyond team allegiances. Football is just a game but families
are what life is all about; my deepest sympathies to Mr Tongaonevai and his
family as well as his team mates and friends. My heart goes out to you and I
hope the comforter will be with you to calm your heart and sole.
So sorry to hear about this! Condolences to Ron, his and his wife's families,
and to the Utes team. Will have you in our prayers!
My sympathies go out to Ron and his family.Hope he will be able to
overcome this tragedy in his life.
This is very sad news for Ron, his family, the Utes football team,fans, and many
others. Hopefully, the families will be touched by all the support they are
receiving from so many people they don't even know. I hope they will find peace
throughout the coming days.
Very sorry to hear of the loss. May God be with ron and his family and that
they be blessed and comforted during this time of tragedy.
At times like this we are neither BYU or Utah fans. We are just simply brothers
and sisters coming together to mourn the loss of and support this good family.
May the Lord bless you and be with you always.
Such sad heartbreaking news. My prayers go out to all of his and her family.
When things like this happen we realize how insignificant our affiliation with
any particular team can be. God bless Ron and his family as they
deal with this tragedy.
Big Ron our thoughts and prayers are with you.
So sorry about this tragic news. Lean on each other and pause to reflect on the
values of life and family that are most precious.
Very heart rendering and sad.
Horrible news...thoughts and prayers for all affected...especially Ron and
families. I know, by the way, that coach Whitt and his staff and team will do
all they can to help and comfort...and for all the right reasons...they are a
bunch of fine people.
What a terrible tradegy. It certainly puts in perspective what is really
important in life. We let sports gain too much importance in our lives. They
will be in my prayers.
Another reckless Utah driver speeding and blows a red light. As long as we
continue to allow lawlessness on our roads tragedies like this will occur.
Today we are not Ute fans or Cougar fans or Aggie fans, we are one in mourning
with our neighbor Ron and our thoughts are with him during this terribly
Ron,I, and so many others, are so sad to hear of your loss. I pray you will find some comfort and strenth through your beliefs,
family, coaches, teammates, friends, and fans. All are there for you.
May the Lord bless all that are close to this tragedy.
Do individuals really need to address themselves as BYU fans when they offer up
their condolences? Come on people, this tragedy is so far beyond having to bring
up what team you support. This is a real life tragedy, you don't need to preface
your sympathy with a disclaimer about who you cheer for. My heart
aches for those in pain from this.
R.I.P Janelle. My prayers go out to the family....that includes the Utah
fans....I'm sure many of you feel connected because of your love for the Utes.
God bless all that grieve this day and hope the good lord would comfort those
that need it most. I am very sorry to hear about your loss.
Terrible news. May our Father in Heaven strengthen and comfort you Ron, and
your family, during this trial.
What a tragic, tragic....and senseless loss. My condolences to the family and
friends left behind.With that said, the following has to be one of
the worst pieces of journalism I have ever seen. Come on D-news, really?"Police are still working on a toxicology report for the driver of
the Jeep; however, because Davis died, Powell said no criminal charges will be
filed."Who exactly would the charges have been filed against?
My deepest condolences to Tongaonevai and the families.
Cougar Nation stands with the Utes in sadness.
Ron is one of the nicest guys you could meet and the last person you would
expect this to happen to. He loved his wife so much and had so many plans for a
family life. A lifetime with her still awaits him, but it's unfortunate it can't
be here and now. He has been and will continue to be a source of strength and a
great example for his team and community. Hopefully they can play the part in
lifting him up as he has done so often for them.
My heart goes out to the Ron and the families. You'll be in my prayers and
What a sad,sad story. Ron, you hang in there. Cougar and Ute nation are
praying for you and your dear family. Hopefully you will recover from your loss
with renewed pourpose in your life and for your future. God bless you.
