    Ronnie is my 1st cousin and I will miss him dearly. He had a special place in my heart. I'm so glad I got to see him Sunday and hear him tell me that he had Jesus in his heart. He is now in the presence of Jesus....free from his pain. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.

    Just want to say how sorry I was to read about Ronnie. I grew up knowing him and the family and was around him a lot when I was married to Millard. Know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
