My deepest condolences to your family. I have very fond memories of being at your home almost daily as a teenager. Nothing compares to the hospitality that was shown to me by Mr. and Mrs. Sargent. I remember the day Mrs. Sargent told me to just knock and come on in whenever I came over. She was always so sweet and thoughtful. Many blessings to your family.

I remember those early years in the Virginia Air National Guard. There were not a lot of African-Americans then, and we really had to stick together and push each other to excel. Ronnie was one of those persons who made you laugh, comforted you with a smile that only she could give and always did everything with excellence. She was a leader in every way and will always be a part of our Air Guard family. To her family, please never forget that death is not the end of life, it is the elevation of our earthly life to eternal life. Ronnie is more alive now than ever, and I have a feeling that from somewhere beyond the veil of this life she is still watching over you.

During my service in the Air Guard I came to know Ronnie as a Serious Professional, a Fun-Loving and Caring Person, and one of the Bright Lights in our Air Guard Family. Her passing has left me too with a Heavy Heart. My Condolences to her immediate Family in a loss we all share.

When I had heard Veronica had passed, I couldn’t believe it. She was someone you remembered. Whenever we ran into each other on base, at the Air Guard in Sandston, we always had a good conversation, full of laughs. She had such a beautiful smile. But God knows best, she is home now. My thoughts and prayers to her husband, children and family. Ronnie, will be missed.

I was very shocked to hear of Ronnie’s passing. I worked with her for many years with the VaANG both in Sandston and Langley. Ronnie was a very special person and she will be missed greatly! The last time I saw her was at New York Deli in Williamsburg and she was all smiles telling Edi and me about her new job and how much she enjoyed being retired. Prayers of comfort for her family and Rest In Peace Ronnie.
