My deepest condolences.
Ronnie and Pam were such a cute couple.
I remember always seeing Ronnie with a big smile on his face when the whole family got together at Vovo and Vovo's house.

Ronnie was a special person. He never said anything bad about anyone and he was liked by everyone. He dedicated his life to his family and worked slavishly to support them and give them all he could. Rest in peace, Ronnie. You deserve it.
