    I met Mr. Ronnie at a place of business and with his amazing personality and loud voice we quickly became friends. Everyone at my job loved when he stopped by because we knew he had a story to tell and he was going to make us laugh. There was never a dull moment with Mr. Ronnie he was so full of energy and and always smiling. As the time came when he started to get ill he wouldn’t hang up with anyone without telling us he loved us. I remember us calling and singing happy birthday to him he was so shocked and surprised we had him jus a laughing on the phone lol. He will be truly missed sending my heartfelt condolences to his family and especially Mrs. Ann and his sons may God continue to cover and lift you in the days ahead. We all love you Mr. Ronnie!
