Ronnie...we just celebrated our 40 year Lanier High School Reunion. Sure wish that curly haired boy with the twinkle in his eye and always a smile on his face could have been there with us. You wouldn't know any of us, we've all aged...LOL You were always so kind and such a good person. Thank you for always keeping watch and for a job well done.
