Ronnie, I know you are missed by all those you touched in Nebraska, but also those of us in Charleston who remember the wonderful, playful member of our parish here in South Carolina! I loved our morning drives to mass and the kindness of your heart to all of us at Blessed Sacrament. You are a treasure we will carry in our hearts ♥️

Our dear Ronnie, we miss you dearly at WEL-Life. There aren't enough words to describe how all of us have been affected by your love, generosity, kindness & contagious laughter. We miss your stories and jokes. I miss hearing you yelling, "Skipbo!", each time you heard my voice. I miss our daily hugs & your gentlemanly hand kisses. You made our facility a better place in many different ways. Thank you for being an example of a wonderful human being. Rest easy, until we see you again, our friend.

To the Vidrine family. I truly will miss having the opportunity to call Ronnie or see him during my visits to Nebraska. After losing my mother and father, Ronnie stepped in and helped fill the void I had. We shared stories, candy and jokes as our bond became stronger.
Ronnie never let a chance go by without him telling me how special his family made his life. He loved his daughter so much and he felt the same way about his Son-in-law and all his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was so proud of each and everyone one of them and he shared his feeling with everyone.
I will truly miss you Ronnie. I look forward to the days when I say “knock knock” and you respond, “who’s there”. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
