I only just learned of Ronnie's passing and would like to extend my condolences. I am shocked and saddened by your sudden loss of such a wonderful son, husband, father, and friend. Although I hadn't seen Ronnie in a number of years, I have often thought about him with many fond memories from years past. Of the many people who have come into and out of my life over my lifetime, I can say that Ronnie was one of the few that was a genuinely good and loving person. I know he will be greatly missed.

Mike and I were so sad to hear about Ron. Also I was really sad to hear about your mom. Both will be missed. We wanted to make it over but with both of us on 3rd this week and taking care of sick grandbabies we couldn't get away. If there is anything we can do to help let us know. Probably not a good place to put my # but Gayle knows where I live. love and prayers Angel

I'm sorry for the loss of your dear and precious loved one, you are not alone and may you find encouragement from God's word the holy bible at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God." May you be comforted and have peace during this difficult and painful time as you draw close to God in prayer. (Isaiah 12:2, Psalms 83:18)
