I knew Ronnie and Carol many many years. It's been in the last 8 years we reconnected through a mutual friend Cheryl. I'm very blessed to have had good old friends memories from our younger days. I pray God wraps his loving arms around all who mourn and celebrate Ronnies life. Gone but NEVER FORGOTTEN. Rest Well my friend. 💙
