Memories Timeline


  1. Ronnie, Thank you for allowing me to care for your mother. She was such a blessing and a inspiration to me. I would like to have just a fraction of the faith that she had. When ever I talked to about her to friends I alway mentioned the way she prayed and believed in God. You have the patient of Jobe. I have never met a nicer and soft hearted man in my life. You gave your mother the best care I have ever seen a son give. You went above and beyond what any son would do. Please let me know if I can help you in any way. Thank you again and our prayers are with you and your family. The Colvin Family Shari, Scott, Andrew and Mariah

  2. Ronnie ~ I was sorry to hear of Grace’s passing. She was a true angel on Earth and is now home. I have many childhood memories which include your Mom. She always had the best smile and laughter. My thoughts and prayers are with you. She will truly be missed by many. Love ~ Michelle Ray Agnoni and family)
