I am so sorry you have lost Ronny & at such a difficult time with the isolation of the world pandemic. I wish that I could have come to give you each a big hug. I have such sweet memories of growing up on Poppy Lane. Our neighbors were family to us! I always remember Ronny with a smile on his face and a chuckle. I can remember when you Rose tended us. I remember playing G.I. Joes with Mike! Lots of happy memories. And Kim helping me to get a job @ Sears Financial Center @ Fashion Place. I hope you and all your family are well. I pray that you will have peace and comfort in the coming days and weeks. It's so hard to lose your husband, dad, grandpa and great grandpa! We love you! Shelly Walters
