Ronnie and I were first cousins. In our younger years we were very close. Ronnie would visit our family while working at West Point, N.Y. We lived in Irvington, N.J. My father was Orval Houck. I married and moved to York, Maine. Much to my surprise Ronnie found me. After many years we lost contact. I had to write this update as I feel your sorrow and I have close memories of our families. Rest In Peace Ronnie. Sheila Houck Yorke
