I am so sorry to learn that Ronnie has passed away.  We started in first grade together at Sedge Garden, then to Glenn, and onto East.  He was a very kind hearted person.  My sincere condolences to his family.  -- Sharon Southern Carter

So very sorry to hear about Ronnie......we spoke on the phone on a couple of occasions prior to our 40th reunion and it was so good to reconnect with him.  My condolences to the family and I'm so thankful that his passing was peaceful.

My sincere condolence to family and you are in my prayers. I remember Ronnie from Glenn Jr. High while I was there, and then at East. He was always so friendly, smiling, cheerful and quick to say hello, a real gentleman, great classmate, kind and compasionate toward others. I know he is in Heaven with our Lord and Savior. R.I.P. my fellow classmate, you will never be forgotten.

 I went all through school with Ronnie at Sedge Garden, Glenn Junior High, and

East Forsyth.  He  has been an example of what a  true Christian is all about.

His friendliness, his smile, his desire to help others, and the joy he had for life

should inspire each of us to be more patient  and loving to all  people.

On one occasion, he shared the story with me of the death of his dear mother.

She died at home, and Ronnie was beside her holding her hand. Now, he is

with her in Heaven, and we can all rejoice. I will miss you , my friend. RIP.

Ronnie and I grew up in the same neighborhood. I was totally shocked when I heard about his death. I have known him all my life. He was always so friendly and was so happy to see me. He treated everyone the same.

Ronnie was certainly loved by everyone, and was always a key player in our class and each reunion. He loved seeing everyone together, having a good time with each one of us. I am so very sad to hear of his passing; he was always so young at heart. A special person such as Ronnie will surely be missed at our next gathering as will many of our classmates who have gone home to be with our Lord. God bless you, Ronnie, as you have blessed us with your life!

I am so sad to hear of Ronnie's passing.  We remained in contact over the years when Suzie's Diner was still around.  Our mom's worked together there, and I knew his sisters from working there also.  Ronnie was such a sweetheart....he was always kind and giving.  My deepest condolences to his family.
