    It seems like Ronnie was always at my house when I was a kid, he and my brother Herbert (Duke) were best friends and always finding something to get into. Ronnie was so much fun, loved to dance with him and sing with him. My family and I have lots of wonderful memories of Ronnie! Rest In Peace sweet friend!
