Grandad and I were so upset to hear that Ron grabbed that last gear. We've bought a lot of cattle out of Va and we always slept easy at night when we knew they were coming on a Porter truck because we knew Ron and Linda are the absolute best in the business. Ron cared for every animal on his truck like they were his own babies, and you cant hardly find "salt of the earth" people like that anymore. We sure miss you here at Double B&S Ron, may the Porter trucks roll on forever good buddy. Until next time, with love.

Ron was like a brother to Steve. He had a big grin and a big heart. He would come to visit us whenever he came through "Dogtown ". He would call from time to time and send us Christmas cards. A true friend. We loved him then and will love him always.

I am truly saddened by the passing of Ronnie. We started kindergarten together at Copper Creek Elementary. I considered Ronnie a very close friend. I had the pleasure of seeing him a few years ago at church and he told me that he had gotten saved and turned his life around. Praise the Lord he is in a better place. The entire family is in my prayers.
RIP My Friend.

I am so sorry to hear of Ron’s passing. I had the privilege to load him last Wednesday to head to California. He always commented on my little mare and we would talk horses while we loaded cattle. He will he missed at VLM.

I can say I am envious as you get to meet our LORD AND SAVIOR before me. You were a good friend. I can remember my first time being thrown by a horse was down on the creek. You had me behind you on that ol pony. We were only like 7 yrs old then. Fly high ol buddy. We will meet again some day. Luv you

Barbara, Linda and Chris, I'm so sorry for your loss. Ron was like a brother to me and I loved him just as much. My heart breaks but I know I'll see him again one day. Ron had a heart of gold. We were always close and I was proud to be his Sis. I didn't get to see him as much after we got older. But he always had a special place in my heart and always will. I can still see him as a little feller who ended up staying past dark at my house. Ron was afraid of the dark then. He would ask my momma to stand on our porch with the light on until he reached the cattle guards between our houses where Barbara's is now. She would always stay a little longer even though he could run so fast nothing could have ever caught him. She loved him like he was part of our family and he was. Fly high Little Ron. I will always hold you and my memories of you in my heart. Until we meet again.
