Ronnie was quite a character. He was funny and sweet and took very good care of Sharon. He always made me feel welcome at their home. I remember him sitting in the backyard waiting for the squirrels to keep them away from the birds.
He loved Sharon, tennis, playing the lottery and the beach!
He will be missed. My condolences ~
