|Let the memory of Ronald be with us forever|
"It has been 11 years since you left this world and found peace. For that I am thankful. On the other hand I still get sad at the thought that you will never meet my children. See their smiles or hold them in your arms. I miss you Ronnie. Sometimes when I talk about you I smile, other times I cry. Being a suicide survivor is difficult. You see you caused this pain in me because you took your own life. While I can function now a days, When your anniversary comes around or your birthday, like today is and you would have been 41 years old, it is hard for me. I miss the fun you put into my life. I miss the crazy things you did, but then I miss the sentimental you that not too many people knew about. This song I put on your website here says it all, really. "Here one day, gone one night. Gone too soon." I love you Ronnie, I miss you, and you will always be in my heart. Forever missed, never forgotten, always loved. Goodbye my dear brother."
"Well, today my dearest brother is the 10 year aniversary of your passing. I miss you so much sometimes. Now, while the pain of you leaving me is settled and I can breathe now, I still miss you. You were my brother, my best friend, the one person who really cared about me. In a life where I was neglected, abused, and hurt, you always helped me through those trials. We suffered together as children, but you still managed to laugh and crack a sarcastic joke through it all. When you took your own life you took a part of me with you. I love you so much. Gray would get so mad at me for mourning your death for as long as I have, but for all those out there who have not lost their brother, and best friend growing up, they could never understand what it really feels like. When a loved one takes their own life you feel so many different emotions and sometimes all at once. Anger, guilt, deep sadness, crying fits, numbness, lost faith, everything. I have felt all these emotions and multiple times. I remember when I sold my Grand Prix. I felt like another stab to my heart. We rode in my car together, you aggrivated me about the radio and changing the songs repeatedly. Seeing the car drive off without me in it was heartbreaking. Knowing it was gone, you were gone forever, it really hurt me all over again. Long story short, I just love and miss you my brother. I remember when I could not get a hold of you to invite you to my wedding. I so wanted you to be there. You called Mom the day before my nuptials. I get to the church that day all dressed in my beautiful gown, hair done, make-up and nails and I looked so pretty you were standing at the door of the church, waiting for me. I picked up my dress and ran towards you. You were there for me once again on one of the most important days of my life. You said, Katie you look so gorgeous. I was so happy. I was marrying the man I loved with all my heart, and my brother who I could not send and invite to and wanted to be there, was there. My day was laying out so perfectly. You got to see me marry Gray, you got to fiddle with the songs that were picked for the reception and pay them (which you loved doing), and you got to see me the happiest I have ever been. I have so many memories of so many things. I miss you Ronnie. Goodbye my dearest brother, I love you."
"Here it is 9 years since you left this world and us. We will always miss you Ronnie. We all loved you so much. Your anniversary came and went this year. I did not share this with Gray, I just went on about my day aggravated and bothered. Brothers have this special place in their sister's heart, you surely did in mine. You did some things to make me really mad, but you also did things to make me laugh really hard too. You just had this way of making me feel accepted in this world of no tolerance and no acceptance. You loved me, and I could tell you genuinely cared about where my life was going and what I was doing. Missing you sometimes is so hard, even when I try NOT to think about that. You now have Aunt Tessie and Mom up there with you. Mom left us a little over a year ago this past October (a week after my b-day she passed away). When I see your pictures that I put on your memorial I am reminded of how much we really meant to each other. I will never forget that picture of you, me, mom, and Tory at my house for turkey day that year. You came in the kitchen after everyone had eaten and I was cleaning up to help me clean up. I loved that. You were unselfish about showing me how much you loved me and gave me a hand. It was those things you did that had such a positive impact on me. Those things, no matter how small, really do matter and make a difference. I love you my brother. Eventually we will meet when it is my time to come home. But until then, I miss you and love you very much my dearest brother. Goodbye. Until we meet again, I love you."
"Hey Ronnie. Yesterday we went for a drive on New Smyrna Beach. I remembered you as I watched the waves crash. Much like we used to do together as teenagers. I miss you my brother. Even after all this time and forever, I love you. Goodbye."
"Hey Ronnie. Today is your aniversary. I miss you so much my dearest brother. My life has gone on and the daily tasks of life do not leave much time for thinking of you. I am reminded today though that missing you never goes away, it just lessens in pain. Today I think of all the fun we had and I miss those times. I know you are with Mom now and I love you both so very much. I miss you."
"Hey brother dear. Today is your birthday and I am missing you again. I wish you were still here so I could call you to say happy birthday brother!! I miss you so much on days like this. I am thinking of you and I love you Ronnie. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! GOD bless you brother dear."
"I was thinking about things I realized that you died on a Friday, and today is Friday, Feb. 10th. Exactly the way it was the year you passed. I miss you so much brother. No one who has not lost a brother could ever know this pain or sadness. I miss you so much some days. I have your picture on my desk here. Justin has asked me who that is and I tell him "That is your late Uncle Ronnie"."
"Today makes seven years Ronnie since you left us all. I miss you so much. I will never forget the way I crumbled at your memorial. When you died I lost something very important from my life. My brother, my best friend, my confidante, my tell it like it is guy. You really were such an awesome person. I love and miss you so much my dearest brother. Rest In Peace my brother. Goodbye."

"I miss you and love you, my dearest brother."
"Hey Ronnie. Six years ago today we lost Aunt T. When you died she took the news really hard. She loved you so much. Everyone who really knew you loved you so much. You were like the light in life. Like the theme song says....Gone Too Soon....you truly were. I love and miss you so much my dearest brother. Gone but never forgotten. I love you."
"Hey Ronnie, I'm thinking of you today. I love and miss you very much my dear brother."
"The aniversary of your death is comming very soon. We all think of you often my dear brother. I was going through the closet and doing some clutter removal and cleaning when I found your paperwork from the police report, to the autopsy, to the 911 tape. I have it all you know. I loved you so much Ronnie. You were far more to me than my brother. You were my best friend. I love and miss you."
