Ronnie, I miss you so much already. I always thought we would have more time together and I want you to know that you were a great brother. I'll miss watching tv with you, the stories of your younger years and when you were in Vietnam. Your life was never easy but you dealt with it without ever hurting anyone. Puuch will be well taken care of and loved..you know that. No more suffering for you, that's the only thing that brings me comfort now and knowing you are with mom. Rest in Heaven Ronnie. I love you....Tina
