    Ronnie always loved to ask questions and talk about Alaska and how it was to live there. I lived there for 7 yrs and he always said that be so cool to explore that place but the cold would be hard. We would talk about the amazing fishing spots and all the bald eagles I’d see on the docks. He was sold and really wanted to go see Kodiak Island. I always enjoyed working and talking to Ronnie. He will be missed dearly. A true one of a kind man!

    I remember: we had played in the summer me n the boys (Ronnie, Jimmy, Audey, and Ricky) on the five acres at Grandad and Nannie’s place. Had a fort and all. Played “Man hunt”. He was the only one of us to be hunted and take out all of us Twice. Had fun Playing “horse” at the hoop… swatting flies by coming from behind them and knocking them out. Had fun playing near Nannies Galaxy. We had our differences and our fights. Of the two of us, He was always the better one, I know cuz I wanted to be better like him. Yes I was jealous of how he was doing for I saw success in him not so much me, never wanted or even wished him ill will. We while in school had drawn “blueprints” of two and three story homes we would live in, they were always being erased on and redrawn but, we did them together. Hey Ronnie, when you see Nannie, Let her know the fudge icing and graham crackers were always AWESOME!!! You are, were, always will be the “Better one”.
