    Ron was a mirrored reflection of myself in how we viewed many things in life. From the moment we met he always kept it real yet encouraging. He was an intellectual and spirited brother and funny as can be. “Tell someone you love them even if you dont know them” You will be missed greatly bro. Glad for the times. We stand in prayer for strength for the family. God bless.
