This is the story of Ron Davis, a charismatic young man who struggled to beat a 12 year addiction to drugs, only to be brutally murdered at the age of 39. The story of his parents, Brooks and Jean Davis, two ordinary people with extraordinary courage, who barely overcome one tragedy, only to be dealt another. A story of faith. Though Ron stumbled many times on the path to overcoming his addiction, he never once gave up the fight, always believing that victory was possible. A story of hope. Just as Ron never lost faith in himself, Brooks and Jean never lost faith in their son. Nor did they stop believing that the man responsible for Ron's murder would eventually be brought to justice-despite a crushing series of blows in a legal battle that lasted nearly eight years. A story of miracles and promise. Over ten years after his death, Ron Davis continues to touch the lives of a great many people. His legacy serves as a reminder that good can still come from even the worst of circumstances.
