I have so many wonderful memories of you that will always be held dear to my heart. However, one of the biggest memories that will always come to my mind is when I was so nervous about my driver's test. Instead of allowing me to be down and out, you walked up to me, reached into your pocket, held out your car keys in front of me, and quietly said with a big grin on your face, "Come on Britt, you got this. We're out here in the country with a big yard! Let's put it to use!" That was one of the most joyful times I remember just like it was yesterday. You not only lent me your vehicle for that test but accompanied me and were waiting right there at the finished line when it was completed. I'm pretty sure you were more excited than I even was when I passed! You were always one of the biggest cheerleaders I've had and I've never forgotten. Through it, all, one of my biggest hopes, was that you had known your own self-worth, just as I had.

Rest well Uncle Ronnie......I'll be seeing you
