Good morning Pam and family. Just about knocked my socks off last night when I got home and saw about Ronnie in the paper. Talked to Pat. Did not get her email about him being sick but thinking back he had lost a lot of weight last time I saw him and I wondered if he was OK. Will see you at 1100. Love you all. and God bless you through this.
ordered some flowers last night but too late to get them to the service so will be delivered to the house.
Ginger, George and all our family
