I don't remember you, my brother, because I was only 2 years old.
But I have pictures of us together and the stuffed animal lamb you bought for me the day I was born.
And most importantly I have you forever in my heart.
You were a proud and handsome Marine and always will be.
Rest well, my brother.

Well, my brother, here we are so many years later. I haven't been able to do this because it hurts too much. Mom joined you in '97, well now Dad is there too. So close to your day - March 15. I hope you all had a huge reunion. Take good care of him for me. As always, Dear Ronnie, you are my hero, well now you have my moon and my sun there with you as well. I love you, Ronnie...
From his sister,
Hey Uncle Ronnie!
Uncle Ronnie, I want you to know that I love and I miss you very much!
Hope you know all this! I'm your niece Janet Nachelle! I'm sure you know who I am! I love you so much, Uncle Ronnie! I wish you were here! Mommy misses you a lot to. I don't know much about you. I've seen pictures and I heard your voice! I wish I knew more about you! It's gonna be hard but I'm gonna try to see what I can learn so I know you better! If you were here with me right now I probably be bugging you to take me out for ice cream or if you still had your motorcycle I would ask for you to take me for a ride!
I got to go now. I love you very much!
Uncle Ronnie ...
I've heard a lot about you.
But I what I want to know is what it was like when you were alive.
Love forever and always,
Always FaithfulAn Echo of Honor
A "Lesson" once Learned
A strong Pillar of strength
Speechless admiration, eternally earned
The Echo of Bravery
The Echo of Valor
An Echo of Family
An Echo of Silence
Echo, You Echoed
Echo, You Echo in all that is Good
Snowflakes in Summer
Echo, You Echo in My life today
