Condolence Messages

  1. My son, Robert Hopkins, and I will miss Ronnie more than I can tell you. He has been a friend for over 30 years and has been a support to us both since the death of our husband and father. He had one of the biggest hearts that I have ever known; it beat for people, especially the poor, and it beat for animals, especially for his little 3-legged rescue dog Charlie. I like to think of Old Blue (and all the other dogs he has cared for in his life) rushing out to meet him at the gate of heaven.

  2. Offering my deepest sympathy to you all and you are in my prayers. Ronnie will be greatly missed. The memories of him and Dean-O, my husband, being as close as brothers, will stay in my heart till we all meet again…. I will cherish the memories. Love to all…

  3. I will truly miss Ronnie we were friends for 52 years I have such good memories of Ronnie and his brother Donnie pulling pranks on the teachers in Elementary cause they couldn’t tell them apart. Ronnie was a great friend with a good heart and soul. He would do whatever he could to help you out. He was truly a great friend all who knew him. Now he will be with his parents and God.

  4. I loved my Uncle Ronnie dearly! There isn’t anyone else like him. The world won’t be nearly as nice without him here. I love you all.

  5. I will miss my brother so much but know we will all be together again.All it takes is asking Jesus Christ into your life and to truly believe
    in the father,son and the holy ghost.When one is born God issues you a soul and when you die that soul better be in just as good of shape or better when you return it or you are going to Hell.To me,of this there is no doubt.Ronnie and I deeply believed this.

  6. Ronnie was a fun kid to be around and comes from a good family. Ronnie, Donnie, Bubba, Paula, Linda, Paul, and Freda were a huge part of my family’s lives. I have known Ronnie for 57 years, but my memories include my toddler years to teenage years mostly. In our young years, together, we (including PeeWee M.) would ride tricycles and later bicycles around the neighborhood; fish for crawfish, and work on my Dad’s Snow Cone trucks. Although the Lehrs were our next door neighbors, they were like family to us. We shared many happy times together. Ronnie touched the lives of many people and will be missed! I pray that our Heavenly Father and Son, Jesus Christ, will bless Ronnie’s family and friends with strength during this sad time.

  7. Dad,
    I miss you more than I ever could possibly imagine. You were my rock that I could always count on. You helped me when I wouldn’t help myself. I’m so lost without you. Please come back. It’s been almost two years now and I still break when I see your picture. I need you dad. Please know that I will never forgive myself for not being a better son.
