    We were very sorry to hear of the passing of Ronnie. He was a good and funny man! He told the greatest stories and had the best laugh. We hope you find comfort in all of the great memories you have of Ronnie. He will be dearly missed.

    We found out a few hours too late for the funeral, but we once again will share some of the grief over the loss of a friend. Ron and I were pallbearers for Wesley English some years ago, and having shared that duty, we had a bond. It was always a pleasure to see him. Our sympathy to you all.

    Connie I was so sad to hear about Ron. Please know that my thoughts are with you at this time. I know this will be so hard for Alyssa and MacKenzie. Please let me know if there is anything I can do for them while at school.
