Marie we wanted to send our condolences to you and your family in the loss of Ronnie. Although it has been many years since we met Ronnie, we have thought of him many times during these past few years. Jim played music with him for several years & we got to know him well. He was a good musician and friend and we enjoyed being around him. The people in his life are richer for having known Ronnie.
Please accept our deepest sympathy's for your loss. May GOD give you comfort and strength during this time of sorrow.
