This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Ronnie Alick Brion, 25, born on May 23, 1978 and passed away on June 5, 2003. We will remember him forever.
"June 5: the day of Ronnie's spiritual birth. Someday..we will be one again...Love you always..Pops"
"Thinking of you today...hard to believe so much time has passed. Maybe because we think of you every day and feel you with us. Love you bunches!!!"
"Happy Birthday Roast"
"Happy Birthday Ronnie! Your drawing "It's worth every breath" would make you rich... I can't tell you how many copies of this I've see over the years, I mean, shirts, mouse pads, poster, cards you name,.. you are really famous, We LOVE IT... THANK YOU for reminding us that life is worth EVERY breath!!! LOVE YOU!!!"
"We miss you so much.......Aunt B"
"Happy Birthday kiddo!!!! Thank You for being my constant reminder to love life!! More true words have never been said as yours...'It's worth every breath!!!' We do not only celebrate you today, but everyday!! So we say Happy Birthday as this is your special day...but celebrate you all year long! Love and miss you bunches!!"
"Today we celebrate your life Ronnie. One day doesn't seem long enough. What you gave all that knew you is endless. So thank you dear for the love of family, the abundance of faith, and especially your angels. They are everywhere, on our walls, in our photo albums, on our shelves, but mostly in our hearts. They comfort us. We love you honey, and will forever miss you. Happy Birthday! Aunt Patty"
"As our lives continue to move through life changes, the memories of loved ones that have departed "sadden me and comfort" me. I find myself moving through those "sad family times" when a grandparent, an uncle, an aunt, a cousin, a parent, a sibling, a child or a friend dies. My heart aches and emotions last for a time. Then I am revived. The memories of "family ties and family strength" take over. I realize that we will all be together one day, as a Family. The unselfish love we have all been offered..can not be dismissed so easily. HIS love is ever-present. HIS love and HIS presence is inside all of us. Yet, at times we ignore this gift and confuse it with our day-to-day personal needs and comforts we have come to enjoy. Ronnie celebrates his 38th birthday. My heart aches and my heart celebrates his life. Happy Birthday Ronnie. As you told me, "Pops, it will all be ok." In the end, I know in my heart that Our Family will be one again. FAITH! All My Love..Pops."
"Christmas 2015. A time when memories of Christmas past are so many and wonderful. Some memories are sad and difficult to dismiss. Most memories are happy, a joy to talk about and share. My special "happy" memories are all about family. I am blessed with a wonderful family. I thank my Lord for everything, especially the treasure of family and the love we share. Merry Christmas Everyone. Chet/Dad/Pops"
"October 10, 2015. Too frequently, we are reminded just how tender and precious life can be. We endure the passing of yet another family member and close friend, Patti Deeb. Yes, the same saddness and sense of loss as before. That sudden moment when you realize that Patti has moved on in her spiritual life, to that place, that PROMISE guaranteed by her faith. Our faith not only comforts us but assures us that one day will come, when we will all share in THE PROMISE with Patti, Ronnie and so many others. Patti, we will miss you. All my love always..Chet/Pops"
"Every 88 minutes we can look up to see the space station go over. I feel that we can do better.Every minute, every day, every hour we can look up and think of you and see you. I have even had communication with you... Love ya and think of you often.Please say hi to all that are there with you..Please tell them we miss them all too...Uncle Sam"
"Ronnie - you have been such an inspiration to us all. I think of you all the time and we all miss you. So many wonderful memories of when you were a kid, Lake Tulloch jet sking, camping in the cove, collecting cans, bottles and rocks. You are one of my guardian angels in heaven. Your angel picture hangs on my wall and I see you daily. Say hi to Bill for me - love and miss you both."
"It is indeed a day of remembrance...your spirit being set free. I still feel The Holy Spirit's presence.....the stillness and peace...and my spirit rejoicing as you were received in Heaven (home). Your picture of 'It's Worth Every Breath' hangs on the wall above my computer but wow how this message has grown and been manifested with Dustin's Lego's. Well done Dustin. You are so missed sweetie. We will see you again but feel your presence everyday. Aunt Barb"
"A day of remembrance as Justin reminds us. What better way to remember Ronniie than to remember the good times we all have had together. Jan reminds me of the funny story behind the "It's Worth Every Breth" artwork that Ronnie created. Ronnie did this drawing in May, 2003. Ronnie wanted to give the original to his Aunt Barb. They were conversing regularly. Carol had noted that Ronnie had misspelled the word "Breath" as "Breth". Carol laughed so hard, as we all did. Carol wanted it to be perfect for Barb. I do not think Ronnie really cared..he just wanted to be sure Barb received it. Dustin Brown recently asked for a clear copy of Ronnie's drawing. Dustin commissioned to have it reproduced in legos! Today, Dustin announced that the "lego" picture of Ronnie's drawing (4 feet x 6 feet)) was finished and he has it hanging in his office in his new house. .Quite an honor, especially today. My thanks to Dustin for this honor. I am sure Ronnie is loving it!! The picture of the day on this site is a picture of the drawing in Dustin's office."
"Thinking of you today, as I do everyday...Thank you for continuing to help me see beauty in everyday!!! Love & miss you! :)"
"Happy Birthday Ronnie! I miss you, Love Your Brother Eric"
"Sorry I missed your Birthday Ronnie. Things have kinda been a mess down here but I know God has a plan for me. I love you and miss you everyday. Happy Late Birthday Cuz. Please continue to watch over all of us."
"Ronnie, Happy Birthday. miss you, it was always a pleasure to have known you..........Love, Aunt Irene"
"Happy birthday, Ronzo! Fitting that there's not a cloud in the sky today, just the sun."
""I am but a breath away from where you are"......or you could say "You are but a breath away from where those who love and miss you are". I believe that....and I also believe with all my heart and soul that we will all be together again. Praise our most merciful God. Love you Ronnie...Happy Birthday. Aunt Barb"
"Happy Birthday, Ronnie! Miss you. I have some photos of us on my fridge so I get to see your lovely face every day. Spring is in the air and I wish we were making summer plans together. Love you! Thinking of you always."
"Ronnie Alick Brion, 1978-2003. They say the dash between the dates is most important for it represents the life of that person. Also a dash filled with love and people to reciprocate that love is the happiest dash of all. Ronnie, your dash was all about love, and we are so blessed to be a part of your dash. We love you honey. Happy Birthday to you!! Aunt Patty"
"As I opened my eyes on this beautiful morning my first thoughts were of you. Happy, happy birthday!!! We miss you! But I feel you with me everyday...so many reminders...from your angels that bring a smile to everyone that sees them, to a song on the radio or even glancing at my beautiful daughter with her happy, smiley personality...reminds me of your happy, smiley personality!!! Thank you for all you continue to bring to my life!! We love you so much! We celebrate you today Ronnie!!"
"Happy Birthday Roast -"
"Happy Birthday Ronnie. 2015. 37 years old. Who would ever have believed it? You completed my life. The ups and downs that a person brings upon himself. The UPS that other people bring upon you. You brought me so many ups Ronnie. I miss you lots..goes without saying. I wonder all the time about you, us, the future. I look back in wonder. Sometimes, I catch myself thinking, "did it all really happen". Listening to Yanni on the way to Rochester. We loved that drummer! Seems like a few minutes ago. I BELIEVE! That's for sure. I will treasure every memory of you, of family. All My Love Always. Pop"
"Wish you were here to make watching the Super Bowl a fun event for me! Adam would have loved you. Miss you, Ronzo!"
"Ronnie remember when you were younger and Bill and I had a superbowl party and you gave several of Gina's friend the chickenpox? So many fond memories of you angel boy. Say hi to Bill for me"
"God bless you Ronnie....we know you are always around us and with us."
"Oh Ronzo, how we miss you each and every day. We knew life would never be the same without you and it wasn't. But your spirt and love of life lives on in each of us who loved and adored you. We wish you were here to celebrate all the wonderful times for our families, but we have felt your presence. I love you my sweet Ronzo."
"Oh my sweet child....you slip in and out of our lives....I sense your presence by God's Grace...and I am humbled. You share my love of God and family. You share those loving desires to bless those I love and those who need the love we can give. You are an open portal Ronnie.....and I am blessed to feel you and know the love and peace that surrounds you. I give Thanks to Almighty God for your life force and your continued love for your family and friends. It means everything Ronnie and I know that God loves us this much to comfort us with your continued presence. You are a beacon.....Hugs, Aunt B"
"Ronnie...cherishing every day with you on our minds and in our hearts...watching Lil Ronni growing up and doing her thing every day filling those big shoes...she knows...I feel it,,,we are so blessed to have another 'Bright Spot' in our family...Merry Christmas You!!! Love and miss you!"
"Merry Christmas Ronnie I miss and love you..."
"I go through the year, hustle and bustle- some good days, some bad- some happy days , some sad. Then I come to this time of year- sitting on Forever Missed talking to you Ronnie, and it hits me, your 4 little but powerful words. IT'S WORTH EVERY BREATH! Sometimes I cry, sometimes I smile, sometimes I just say Amen. When I think about those words, I realize how Blessed we are in our lives, and how very special you are to help us see that. Thanks Ronnie for those 4 oh so very special words. Merry Christmas Ronnie, You are Forever Missed. May God Bless You honey. All my love, Aunt Patty"
"Christmas 2014 The memories of your kids, your family and your friends at Christmas tend to always be at the forefront of Christmas memories. My memories of Justin, Ronnie, Michelle, my "families" and all of my friends at Christmas will always be my favorites. To that 1st Christmas, to Jesus Christ..My eternal love and thanks for the best life I could imagine. My Love to ALL of You. Have a Merry Christmas. Chet, Dad, Pops."
"We missed you this weekend, Ronnie, at Justin's wedding. How much fun we had and how happy we are for Justin. I got to see the board of photos that your Dad gave to Justin a while ago and there were so many good ones of you boys. Made me miss you even more than usual! Love, Seanna"
"There are some very special times when a child makes his parents very proud. Justin has given me so many moments when I have been so filled with pride to be his Father. Another such time was August 2, 2014. His marriage to Selena is one of those PROUD moments. I felt Justin reaching his full potential, complete, happy. I am sure Ronnie felt it as well. Love you Justin..always..Dad/Pops."
"Happy Belated Birthday, Ronnie. Watching Dustin in the Stanley Cup Finals and thinking of you.....how much I wish we could be going to these games together. Lots of love, miss you always! Seanna"
"we are working real hard to share some time with your Dad and aunts in July...I know you will be there too...Jeanie and I think of you often...Our Son and Daughter Tracy & Teresa send their love too...As it says "Forever Missed....Ly....Uncle Sam"
"Hi Ronnie. We Miss You. Well today was a Tough Day. We lost you 11 years ago and today we are missing another Teen. I have a Huge Favor to ask you. We are looking for him.

"Ronnie - How I wish you were here to celebrate your birthday with Marsh & Brad & all your wonderful friends from I High. Taken from us far too young, but always remembered, Rip & Sharon"
"Hey Ronnie, Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!Think of you often! I know all is well with you now,,,,,,,In January we sent Sadie(our 15 yr old pet to visit with you, hope u enjoy........Aunt Irene"
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY RONNIE. Life is good right now. We miss you a lot. We just had Cocoa come up and join you. I know he and you will have some fun together. Thank you for watching over all of us. Say Hi to Gramma and Grampa for me. Love you. Teresa"
"Happy Birthday Ronnie. "Chet Thank you for keeping the spirit of Ronnie alive. I have a picture of him at my desk that I glance at everyday and I know that he keeps an eye on me" I will light a candle today!"
"Happy Birthday Ronnie!!"
"I am sitting on my back porch this beautiful morning, reminded of wonderful memories of you. You had such an impact on so many people when you were with us, and even now. You don't know how often we say, "Remember when Ronnie did this, or wouldn't Ronnie love this, or doesn't he look like Ronnie". We all miss you Ronnie, miss you like crazy, but you are our BRIGHT spot , that whenever we think of you a smile appears and just a good feeling inside. Happy Birthday Ronnie, we love you."
"today I am reminded how delicate life is. here one minute and gone the next. Ronnie helped me realize that it is what you do in between those minutes that count. we should be blowing out 36 candles but instead we remember 25 great years. love you all. Justin..."
"I am not going to light a candle, I am not going to lay a flower, I am going to leave a note. A lot of people go to Alaska in search of Gold. The Brion family never had to go...We had it in Ronnie.. As I have said before... Jeanie and I have one really massive regret. We never got close enough to Ronnie to let him know how much He meant to the family.He was a real "class" act... We and a lot of extra love and respect that we never had a chance to pass on....Chet, You have SO MUCH to be proud of in that boy!...I am sure he is furthering many of the"Brion" legacies where ever he is now...Mom And Dad, Lee and all are so proud of his belonging....Love ya....Jeanie and Sam."
"Ronnie- I find myself reminiscing about your life and all the great memories. The Lord brought you home so young but he knew you had accomplished what he planned for you…steadfast faith and true love. Some people go many years and even their whole life and never know true love, yet you knew true love and lived it every day with every breath. Not one day passes that I don't think about you and your smile. I always feel your presence around and within me. Happy Birthday Ronnie. Love and miss you, Michelle
"Happy Birthday Roast - I often think about all the good times. Thanks for reminding us to appreciate every breath."
"What can I say Ronnie? I'm all feeling when I think of you. Not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. I reflect back to all the memories....you as a boy and then as the most grown up nephew ever. Your questions still haunt me...and our dream remains as real today as when you came to me. You loved so much and in that love the Lord gave you such peace. I totally expect to feel your presence at the wedding. Your brother is happy and I know that makes you happy. Please dearest, don't stop waiting for us. Don't stop breezing through our lives. Never stop loving, for we never will. Happy Birthday sweet. Aunt B"
"Birthdays were a big deal in our house. I close my eyes and I remember May 27, 1968 Michelle's 1st birthday; September 19, 1975 Justin's first breath; May 23, 1978 Ronnie's first breath. I treasure the times we all have growing together as a family. Each birthday has a story, especially that first birthday. For these three days are the best days of my life. Ronnie said it best..It's Worth Every Breath. Happy Birthday To Each of you..My eternal thanks to each of you for making my life so fullfilling. All my love always..Pops/Dad"
"Ronnie miss and think of you everyday, you are my "special" angel. I hope you and Bill have met and your love and friendship continues. I will continue to think of you each day in 2014 and always know you and Bill are watching over me. Love you"
"Reflections upon 2013 and the # one blessing is the love of family !! Ronnie,my son, our heavenly Angel of hope, joy and love, that transcends from our hearts & souls to yours, we give thanks & gratitude !! I had made a decision to carry my tributes & daily prayer thanks for being your mother and feeling your presence, privately to myself, but after reading these beautiful tributes I had to let you all know how each & every tribute touches my heart !! Ronnie lives on through each one of us, THANK YOU ALL & may the love of family, friends & good health greet you with "open arms" in 2014 !! Thanks Chet for keeping Ronnie's Candles lit with this website !!"
"Ronnie, this has been an incredible year, but the highlight was to bring into our world an angel, Ronni Leeann Hill. Yes a beautiful little girl named after you Ronnie, our angel in Heaven. The beauty of this is everyday I look at her, when she smiles, I see your smile. As her life blossoms, we remember your beautiful life. God has blessed us with her, just as he did with you. You live on Ronnie, and Cori cannot wait to tell her your story. Merry Christmas honey. Our cup runneth over. Aunt Pat"
"We missed you again this year, Ronnie. I always find myself wishing you were with us at the holidays. We all miss you and keep you close to our hearts. Love, Seanna"
"10 YEARS HAVE PAST SINCE THE WORST TIME OF MY LIFE, LOSING A SON & MY LITTLE BROTHER IN A 3 MONTH SPAN MAKES YOU WONDER WHY & YOU ASK YOURSELF QUESTIONS THAT YOU WILL PROBABLY NEVER GET THE ANSWERS TO. I AM A FIRM BELIEVER EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON AND FROM READING THESE TRIBUTES EVERY MORNING I REALIZE THAT MY BROTHER'S PASSING WAS FOR A PURPOSE. OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS LIFE HAS BECOME SO SIMPLE FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND. WHEN YOU LOVE OUTWARD, LIVE RIGHTEOUS, AND LAUGH EVERY DAY LIFE IS GOOD. LOVE TO YOU ALL. THANKS BRO..."
"I have a brother....Your Dad... We have shared so much over the years...One of the most traumatic was the loss of you... I sincerely believe your life brought us closer... Words cannot express our love and hurt with your passing. Our entire family misses you and send our love.....Uncle Sam & Aunt Jeanie"
"Ronnie - another Christmas, another year, since your wonderful family & your many friends have been without you. As we are so fortunate in our lives, we miss & remember you & wish you were here with us!! Rip & Sharon"
"You share my heart and all the love there is. You come into my conversations and I share your life and your story. Nothing changes, only the love we give and receive. Sometimes I sense you on the edge of a dream or a thought. It is a blessing to sense you. Thank you darlin. You are never more than a breath away. LY, Aunt Barb"
"Another Holiday Season..Christmas Past, Present & Future..all have been, are and will be special. Love you Ronnie. Oh yes..received pressure from some folks to change the background music on the site. Your brother Justin provided the song. Love you Ronnie..Feel You So Strong..Pops."
"As I sit here this Christmas surrounded by family and our new little addition, 'Ronni', I am especially feeling your presence around us! Know we think about you everyday, we love you so much!! And it makes me so happy to know our daughter will share the name of someone soooo special in all of our lives. She has big shoes to fill...:) Merry Christmas!!!"
"Said goodbye, turned around And you were gone, gone, gone, Faded into the setting sun, Slipped away, But I won’t cry Cause I know I’ll never be lonely, For you are the stars to me, You are the light I follow, I’ll See you again, This is not where it ends, I will carry you with me. Through the strongest or weakest parts of my day your always in my heart. Love you cuz. Miss you alot:("
""Its worth every Breath!" You are so right, Ronnie. We miss you. You are an inspiration. Thank you for watching over all of us. We feel your presence everyday. I love you."
"Hey Ronzo. There is not a day you don't pop into my head and as always in my heart. You knew how to live life and taught us all many lessons. i miss your smile and laughter, but know you were an amazing gift to us for 25 years, it just was not enough! love and miss you everyday."
"Over the years, alot of people have traveled to Alaska in search of gold. The Brion Family has never had to think about it because we had it in Ronnie...As an uncle, my only regret is that I never got to really have the time with him with the family...But, the memories and stories will tend to cancel those regrets a bit....Love to Ronnie and to "Pops"....Sam"
""Ronnie....I miss you brother; but its great to know that you are shining down on us and letting us know "that its worth every breath" Your the best...Eric"
"If, from all the people lives you touched, their love and admiration for you was your cure, you would have lived forever. God bless you Ronnie. Your Florida family loves and misses you."
"Hi Ronnie, sorry I'm so late in wishing u a Happy Birthday, blame it on old age, ok? you are missed by all of your realtives and i know you are talking with ur Uncle Mac, He is there with you.....so again, Happy Belated birthday, Aunt Irene"

"Happy Birthday Roast - thanks for all the good times."
"Your Florida family gathers tonight to celebrate your birthday Ronnie- we talk about the wonderful memories of our time with you- laugh and cry.. Chloe will be singing Happy Birthday- and we will be sending smiley face balloons your way, this for two reasons. One because whenever we think of you we smile- and we know when you see them coming , you'll be smiling too. We love you Ronnie!"
