Years ago when I was a young mom you were there for me and my baby in many ways. She would see you from a distance and tell unk Ron. You definitely wore your heart on your sleeve and always was a protector. I will always cherish so many memories and laughter. You showed me how to turn lemons into lemonade and make the best out of certain situations. To know you was to love you. I’m so thankful the last time I saw you was in church with Tionne and you gave your life to the Lord. Get your rest Ron. You will be missed by so many. Love Jaz

Ronald is not just my cousin, he is my Brother. Our parents stopped kids. My aunt wanted girls and my mom wanted boys. So they traded... Ronald would always express how proud of me he was for doing something constructive with my life. Je always wanted ro see everyone win. I have seen him be Daddys and uncles to many of people, Santa Clause when people didn't have he helped, school clothes, all that. He was indeed a blessing to many. He has a laughter that once he started you had to join in. He is a father who always supported his kids and supported many little league football teams. I Love you, I saw you we talked I know you loved me, and that's all I need , to know you are at peace!
