  1. Vickie & Family We were very sad to hear about Ron – and he will be very missed by many. He was at our Farm many times helping us with problems and we will miss talking to him at the auctions – he was a good neighbor. And he loved his kids & grandkids so much but he will live on in everyones hearts. May God be with you at this time and help you through this. Love & Prayers,

  2. My thoughts and prayers to all of Ronny’s family. I have so many great memories from my childhood of Ronny and all of his siblings as I grew up right next door to them in Jamaica. From game nights at their kitchen table to playing team tag with all the kids that lived in the village of Jamaica. My best to all of you. Sue
