When I heard Uncle Ronnie had passed away, it hurt my heart...but then I began thinking...he just went home and it gave me happiness for him. Uncle Ronnie loved the Lord and I can't even imagine the celebration he enjoyed when he got to see his Saviors face for the first time! Its so hard for those left behind, Aunt Betty, Greg, Kelly, Ben, Karlee, and the grandchildren but if anything, they can all have peace to know where he is - the old flesh is gone and he is enjoying his eternal home! Praying for peace for you all

Uncle Ronnie was a good man who was always kind and considerate to others. The last time I saw him was in 2007 when I had a very bad accident, and he prayed for me. I was very thankful to him for always being so nice and he never seemed to have a bad word to say about anyone. Praying God continues to comfort the hearts of Uncle Ronnie's entire family and gives you peace during this most difficult time.

My Brother-in-Law Ronnie! You have always been a fine man, a man of God who let your light shine! You was always good to my sister Betty & would give her the moon if she wanted it!! I remember many good times when I was a young man, how humorous you were & have us all laughing! He used to make a newspaper hat like Wes, the man that sold papers uptown! We all thought the world of Ronnie! My deepest sympathies go out to my dear sister Betty, whom I love, and to Greg & Kelly & the grandchildren!! My love & prayers to you all!! RIP Ronnie.
