  • Ronnie will be greatly missed. He was a good friend, the kind you only find once in a lifetime. He was always there for you, you could always depend on Ronnie. He always thought of his friends first. To have known Ronnie was a gift and blessing. He was a godsend from heaven.

    Ronnie didn’t fear death, he said “the sky will open up, and the gates of heaven, and it will be a beautiful place.” He’s not suffering now. He’s with the Lord, as a beautiful soul with the angels.

    I’ll see you again one day old friend.

    Bill and Barbara Allen
