When we first came to visit at South Plains, Ron was the first one to welcome us. We remember him always being friendly and funny and caring. We enjoyed our lunches out after church. We will miss Ron and will be praying for Charlotte during this sad and unknown path she will be going down. We know where Ron is now and take comfort in that. Charlotte we love you and are here for you.

I have more memories of Pawpaw than I can count. I can vividly hear his laugh and see his smile in my mind's eye as I remember the many times we sang and played guitar together. I remember the time he recorded me singing and playing a song so he could set it as his ringtone. I remember having many deep, theological conversations after a holiday meal, and listening as he shared stories from his life. Pawpaw will live on in my heart forever. 💚 ~ All my love, your favorite redheaded granddaughter.
