Ronnie O’Neal was a wonderful friend to my father who loved him like a brother. He always “clocked” my sister, brother and I to see how fast we could run or pedal our bicycles. I’ll never forget the night my sister came running in the house right after she got her driver’s license. She was yelling “I didn’t do anything wrong” because you followed her home in your patrol car. She didn’t know you were coming to eat dinner with us that night. We all had a good laugh at Tammy’s expense over dinner that night. The Westberry family’s hearts were broken the night we lost you.
