I am problably one of Ronnie’s longest friends. We grew up as next door neighbours ( 30 to 50 feet away). I can’t remember a Christmas Day where Ronnie didn’t call. He came to my house this fall and I was just pulling out to go to work. We spoke briefly and said we’d catch up soon. I will miss my friend.
