    Prayers to Ronnies Family.
    We knew Ronnie back in school. He met my wife Sherry and used to kid with me about how a beautiful woman could be with an ugly dude like me….lol….. I will miss your sense of humor.

  5. My heart still aches. 💔
    Not that we were close, but I always remembered the kind words you gave me when I was about to quit school. ( to bad I didn’t listen )
    Man I wish I could have helped in some way. I fight this battle everyday myself !
    Rip Ronnie.

  6. Please forgive the intrusion, but I saw someone today that reminded me of Ron. It brought all those school days back with him in my class. Ron was a student. I have always been sad about his passing. I do have continued thoughts for his family.
