I Love You Dad...
My heart is so heavy hearing of Ronnie’s passing. Knowing his sister as I do, I’m guessing he was the ultimate Marlboro Man who stood strong for his family, as well as a wonderful older brother to my dear friend. These difficult days will eventually give way to a celebration of his lifetime contributions to his loving family. Wishing you all the best as you honor Ronnie through living life well. Sincerely, Bonnie Barber, Santa Ynez, CA
I send my prayers to the family. I have many many memories of Ron and my dad. I hope you can find some comfort in the wonderful memories you have of your dad and husband. I'm going to hope he is with my dad Don and Ted looking for a great place to hunt and train dogs. My sympathies - Mary Wilber
