SADNESS

It with a tremendously heavy heart, that I report that my darling big brother Ron made the journey home to God this afternoon.
We all spent the day with him today, and he made his final journey about 2:30 PM.

Ronnie was such a good big brother.  I know he is healthy, at peace, and finally TALKING again!  Meeting people and talking, to him was always one of his passions, and since May he has basically been unable to speak.  I told my other brother this afternoon, that God is probably saying Sssshhhhhh!!
Ron was a Christian, so there is no doubt whatsoever that he is with God, Mom and Dad, our sister Linda and his wife.

There were many years between Ron and I.  He was a senior in high school the year I was born.  He used to take me riding around with him in his convertible when I was probably 3 or 4.  I got to stand up in the front seat, and he would have the top down.  This was MANY years before there were so many rules.
I always told him that I was his 'chick magnet' - as he always had girls come up to see the cute little girl!

We had so many good times.  We shared our thoughts on everything.  We have always had such a close knit family.  Now there is just 3 of us siblings left.

This is Ronnie and I  - oh, just a few years ago!

I will miss him so much, but I am at peace knowing that he is healthy again and in Heaven.
Please say a little prayer for his children and grandchildren - they are all so lost at this moment without him.

PLEASE hug someone you love tonight and tell them you love them. 


I'll be back to blogging soon.
Thank you all.

  3. Cheryl, my heart is breaking for you and for your family. Ronnie sounds like such an amazing and special man. ((((((HUGS))))) I'm so glad you were able to be there with him when he took his last breath here on earth and woke up in heaven. I know it is a great comfort to know that you will see him again one day. Today I found out that my uncle Ronnie, another amazing man who loved the Lord, died on Tuesday. I am starting the grieving process myself over his death. I will miss him dearly.

  9. Cheryl,
    I am soooo sorry. I am glad that you know Ronnie has gone to his heavenly home. I bet him and Jesus are just chatting up a storm. that is really cute that he used to take you in his fancy car. I remember no seat belts and my mom trying to make us behave from the front seat.
    One time she did not have the paddle on dash,we thought we were home free. She pulled the car over and paddled us with her shoe. I hope you have many fond memories. I pray God will draw close to you and carry you. Praying for you and your family.
    Much love,
    Patti
