You were such an amazing man. I don't have words to expsers how grateful I am to of had you in my life. As well as to have you love me and my son,the way you did. It was an undying love, a love I never knew existed. And I will forever hold a very very special place in my heart for you. You meant the world to me, and although we may have parted for now, I know I will see you again one day soon. I love you so very much Ronnie.~Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.~~If tears could build a stairway,And memories a lane,I'd walk right up to HeavenAnd bring you home again.~
