I met Ronny when I was doing student teaching in Horace McCain’s wood shop. As I grew to know him more, you could tell he was an outstanding young man. Losing track of him after graduation, it is good to read that he went on to live an honorable life, comensurate with his upbringing. It is sad that he has left this earth at such a young age. My condolences to his family.
Sending love and light to all of dear Ronny’s family and friends. Here’s to you, good sir.
