I would like to express my sincere sympathy and prayers for Fern and family. Our hearts are heavy with our loss of Ron but we can take heart in knowing that he is with the Lord. Please be consoled by the words the Apostle Paul just before his death wrote to Timothy. Not only were these Paul's words but these are the inspired words of God. The scripture from II Timothy 4:7-8 are most fitting for Ron as he fought a good fight he has finished his course while keeping his faith and he has now a crown of righteousness which shall be given to him on the day of the Lord's appearing Amen. With my love and prayers

To our sweet friend Fern: Words cannot express our sincere sympathies to you! You and Ron were such good friends. We shall always remember Ron and what a special and unique person he was. Thank God you and Ron restored our little white Church that you and I grew up in! Such precious memories we will have of Ron always! In closing, we shall remember our "chance" meeting Tuesday, January 19. We shall remember Ron as always with a smile and always willing to listen to whatever we had to say about any little thing. He never turned us away... We are still in shock but know that God has a plan for us all! Take care and always, always, know we we are grateful for you and Ron! We love you, Fern! In Christ's love with sadness and tears, Danny & Shelby Quesenberry

We will certainly miss Ronnie. He was an outstanding man who shared his love of life freely with others. He could laugh, love and enjoy with everyone.

So sorry to learn of Ronnie's passing. I grew up knowing most of Ronnie's family: our parents were friends. In fact, I believe we were next-door neighbors for a short time, perhaps before Ronnie was born. Many prayers for Ronnie's family and friends.
