Dear Rose, Kenny, David, Norma, Donald and families,
We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Ronnie. He meant so much to all of us and it was evident how much his meeting meant to him. He was so overjoyed to see everyone come especially those who came home vacation time.
I personally have many special childhood memories of spending many days and nights with Doris who was a special friend to me, (Lorna). He was a wonderful example of God’s true way. He will certainly be missed! Love and care to you all!
