I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Ronnie's passing. She was the glue of our family in so many ways, keeping tradition alive for generations; continually exhibiting great strength and character; living as an example of how God wants us to live, in faith, and always offering sound advice and guidance. I will miss her honesty, fearlessness and zest for life. She was definitely one of my role models, whom I respected and looked up to. We can all learn from her example of a life well lived.

Love and peace to you Uncle George, and cousins Russ, Ron, and Richie.

Love, Karen
