  1. Uncle Ronnie,
    You were/are so loved! Lane loved spending time with you, and absolutely adored you. Thank you for being so wonderful to him. We love you so much, and we will see you again one day.

  2. To the brother I never had, I will miss you. You were always so good and kind to me. You were always so thoughtful to think of my family lovingly. Rob and I have fond memories of our times (and your times) in Cedar Hill and Monahans. I love you and will see you in heaven one day.

  3. Love you brother. You always looked out for me when we were growing up. I was lucky we worked together several times as adults. Say hi to all of our relatives and friends that met you at the gate to heaven. I will see you again when I die. I love you and will miss you, your brother Robby.
