Ronnie was the best of the best.  Always smiled and happy to see you.  I enjoyed listening to stories of when him and my grandpa were kids and the other times he made me laugh.  He was loved by many and is already missed greatly.  Rest in peace my friend.... I know you will forever be keeping "guard" of my purse!  :)
