Cecelia, Ron, Matt, Michael, Doug words cannot express my feelings of love for Ronnie. He was like a brother to me every since our days back at Landsdown Jr. High. Oh, what stories could be told of all the adventurous and mischievous things we did. The times we got into trouble or probably should have and the times we got out of it. The times we spent at the housing project and the Lake Club. The time we ran the BBQ stand at the Lake Club. All those times we spent at the quarries swimming. Those times we cut classes. So, so many great, wonderful memories. I do cherish those times. Now, you are free from all the pain you have suffered. You are reunited with your mom, dad and sister among others. I pray that you and The Lord will be watching over those who you have left behind until the time you’re reunited with them. Rest In Peace dear brother. You deserve it. God Bless. Bill
