"Missing u both so much"
"Many fun times were had by his side. Sharing some of life's lighter moments together are memories only a friend like him could create. When I am grilling I think he is right there telling me I'm "doin' it right". Hope you are looking down with approval brother."
"My uncle Ronnie was a joy to be around. He always knew how to make a person smile or light up a room with one of his many stories. I miss him so much! I am so glad for all the times we got to spend together even if he drove me crazy. I love you uncle Ronnie. Dont have to much fun without us!"
"The last words he said to me as he was going home from a great Christmas celebration was -- 'I love you, Mom'"
"Ronnie was also known as 'Greyhound' on the ball teams and at school for he could run like the wind."
"“There is going to be a resurrection......” (Acts 24:15) The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. May Jehovah the God of all comfort comfort the Gray family and friends.You are in my prayers."
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be
Love mom and dad"
"Ronnie was always my "big Boy" with big ideas. Now there is a big hole in my heart, I loved him so. He truly was a bundle of joy.
The last words he said to me as he was going home from a great Christmas celebration was "I love you mom" and I said to him "I'll see you soon, son"
Love always mom"
