Dot and Family, Rosanna and I are so sorry for your loss and may God be with you in your time of grief. Knowing Ronald from my youth I have nothing but fond memories and What an example of our Christian faith. I think I did provide him with the best laugh he ever had with that dive from my boat years ago. We have to attend a funeral in Birmingham for Rosanna's cousin on Monday but our prayers will be with you. May God Bless. Jerry and Rosanna Jones
