Ronnie and I were best friends from late 60"s to late 70"s. We did everything to gether. Lost track of each other after i got married and moved to Schenectady. Saw him once more in the early eighties. So sorry to his family, sounds like he was loved very much. Many great memories I will have.

God dad, been almost 5 years now, I honestly didnt think that I would last this long, when ever I was down and just wanted to stop trying and just give up on everything, you were always just a phone call away. The amount of times you stopped me from hurting my self and among several other things, in my darkest hours there is no one like you, and I hope your happy, I just cant let you go. I dont want to. But I know one day I will have too but until that day comes, please support me no matter what, i have failed many times in life so far, but one thing you taught me is to not give up. I love you dad, and I miss you alot.

Ron, my first love, father of my only child...in 40 years we went from one extreme to the other, from love to bitterness and anguish. I am thankful that we've been able to come back around to the friendship we have shared for almost 20 years now. You will always have a special place in my heart. Why is it so difficult to remember the bad times today?

With sincerest sympathy to the family. God bless.

My Sincere Condolences to Ronnies Family & Friends, I was sadden to hear of his passing, still too young to leave this world. I know his family will greatly miss him, and I hope our loving Lord will help each of you with your sorrows. Ronnie was a teenage friend of mine. We hung out together briefly one summer. Altho I was a neighbor from across the avenue where he grew up, we didnt see much of each other after a mutual friend had moved away. Still,I remember him at this time as a good friend in that year, and glad to see he had such beautiful family. We always wish the best for our friends, and now I wish the very best to his family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Since I was younger, you were always there for me. I made a promise to you that I kept. The last time I seen you, I showed you I kept that promise and you could see how proud you were. You were even amazing to Lily. We love you so much and miss you!
