Ronnie My friend, We had so much fun at work and away from there. Your sense of humor always kept us laughing even to the point of tears. You always had nicknames for everyone and sometimes two or three for some of us. You had several yourself, Red, Rocket & Ray Ray. But even more than that you were a good friend, teacher and mentor. I Will miss your laughter and that little grin of yours and your love for life and family. RIP my friend. Until we meet again.
