I’m so sorry to hear of Ronnie’s passing. I had not seen him in years, but we grew up together in Snowflake. We went to Greenwood Elementary and graduated from Gate City High School. We saw him every Sunday at church. Ronnie was a year older, but he was a good friend during the early part of my life. We knew Brenda, his mom and dad, and his grandparents. Ronnie was raised in a Christian home and I’m sure he was a great husband and father. Looking forward to seeing you in Heaven.

Spent many times at Herman and Jenny's playing with Ronnie and Belinda. Wonderful memories of all those times together. So saddened by Ronnie's passing but rest assured you will be reunited one day and He is in the arms of His Loving Father. My condolences to your family and prayers for each of you at this difficult time.

So sorry to hear of my cousin's passing. I haven't seen Ronnie in many years. Brenda and Matt, I can remember stopping in at your dad and grandad's home at Snowflake when I was a kid. Herman and my dad would go over all the old stuff they did as kids. I am pretty sure they were 1st cousins. I was a freshman when Ronnie was a senior at Gate City High. I wish I had inherited the "slim" gene that that side of the McConnell clan had.
