I am so sorry for your loss…prayers for comfort for your family. He is my cousin, I have not seen Ronnie in years but he was so sweet and kind I know he is loved and will be missed terribly, may Gods peace cover each of you.
I remember when I got stung by some giant creature in y’all’s shed and your dad wet some chewing tobacco and put in on the sting to make it feel better. He was always very sweet to the little Mexican me. I’ll always remember him.
Awww. Thank you for sharing this. I don’t remember that but he has done it for us before too. He always wanted to make sure we were all safe and well. And I remember him taking us to the monster truck show and it rained and he bought us umbrellas there. Mine was pink and yours was blue, because blue was your favorite color. We miss him so much. 😢
Our deepest sympathies, you are in our thoughts and prayers
Thank you. 💗 It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. Never felt a sadness like this. My brother and I just feel numb and kind of still in shock. Trying to accept it. Hugs.
