To Phyllis and family, my sympathy and prayers go out to you. I've spent many a happy time in your home and those great times will never be forgotten, Since we were 6 years old I can never remember anything but smiles and good times with Ronnie. He is one of my favorite friends. I sure hope we can run the roads and mountains in Heaven together again. The CFHS reunions will be a bit more bittersweet with our memories of him there. Goodbye for now to a wonderful friend.

Ronnie was such a pleasant, respectful and sweet person. I will never forget, he taught me to “ jitter- bug” when he was in the 9th grade, during our gym class when we got with the guys in class. He was such a happy person and never forgot to hug you. He will be so missed, and again at the School Reunions. God Bless his family. RIP, my ol buddy! Gloris
