I have good memories of Uncle Ronnie. I remember when he and his brother took me rabbit hunting on time, I believe with Blake and Josh. My mother (Nancy) probably never knew this:) It was my first time and I was maybe 11 or 12. It was pretty exciting for me. He was a good guy and I have good memories of him. I will keep everyone in my prayers.
