    Lisa, my BFF… Words cannot begin to express my sincere sympathy for your loss. I know that Ronnie truly loved you, Alex and Brandon with all of his heart and soul. I believe that he would want you to celebrate his life rather than mourn his death. Prayers for you for the strength to continue your life as Ronnie would have wanted you to. Love you!!

  • Diana Bogard

    Ron was a colleague of mine when he worked for Medtronic. He always had a smile and positive attitude…..a true professional. His love of the outdoors was superseded only by the love for his family . I’m so sorry for your loss.
