    In every thing we are to give thanks to God. Sometimes that is not easy. I thank God I had the opportunity to know brother Golden. I will never forget how he introduced me to the church at Dayton First Assembly of God. He said I was the biggest person on the Dayton Broncos Football team. It was nice to feel like God and a church wanted me and I wasn’t some great dinner because I played football in high school. He was a great Sunday school superintendent of. Loved God and his family. He worked hard to provide for his family. I will look forward to seeing him in heaven.

    All of my love and condolences to the Golden Family. Ronnie was always a very special person. I am so thankful that God gave him to my friend, Carla; their love and marriage was truly blessed by God. Ronnie and Carla have been such a blessing to so many people along their way; they have truly answered their calling by God. Ronnie was so full of love and adoration for his wife and his children as well as his grandchildren. He always treated me like I was family and I guess in a way I am because Carla and I have been friends for 53 years. I love you guys so very much and don’t forget we’ll see him again in Glory. Much love and prayers. Ginny

    Carla, sorry for your loss. It’s been a long time since we were little kids at Kingsland, but he was always a Kingsland Boy. I know you will miss him.
