We are so sorry for your loss. We know there are probably no words that can console you at this difficult time but try and remember that Ronnie is resting in the arms of God who loves him beyond measure. We will never forget the 4th of July many years ago, when Ronnie stopped by our house with a bag full of firecrackers and lit them all up in our yard. The next day we looked out on a white lawn from all the paper. Still laugh about that to this day.
