Today, like most you are on my mind and finally have the courage after the years have passed to write here. From the beginning I called him "Perrett." He at times was my only friend and confidant. I met him when I was 19 years old, a scared and broken teenager that oozed sarcasm and kept the world at an arms length. He truly helped mend my heart and taught me how to recive love and live proudly of who I was. He was endlessly patient, kind , understanding with no judegments, and helped mold me into a better human. His laugh was contagious and I never stopped telling jokes just so I could hear it fill the room. It has been years and I miss him like it was yesterday. Without fail he always shared loving stories aboout his family and partner and moments that meant so much to him. He helped the forgotton, the outcasts, the broken hearted, one's that society would deem dispensable. He was proud of who he was as a man and a human. Oh thank you, Perrett for imprinting on the endless souls that needed you. I hope you knew how loved you were and you are forever existing like a Phoenix.

Ronny and I were best friends during Jr High and the early years of High School. We were inseparable during that time and spent many days together fishing, hanging out and even going on family vacations w/ each others families. We lost contact after I left Texas but I've always had him in my thoughts. I was wondering whatever happened to Ronny and so ran a google search and this is where it took me. I'm very saddened to have learned of his passing and wished that we'd connected at some point in time over the past 40 years. How short life is and how quickly time passes by. Ronny was a good friend and I hope had a happy and fulfilling life. He's in a better place now and in the company of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rest in peace my dear friend.

I am so very sorry to hear about Ron's passing. I hate that we did not hear about this until today, I wish we could have been there to say goodbye. He was such a precious man, friend and soul. I had the privilege of working with Ron for approximately 10 years through the juvenile probation office in Cooke County where he touched so many young people helping so many of them through some of their most difficult times. I pray for peace and comfort for each of his family members that he had talked to me over the years about and loved so much. He was an awesome man who is greatly missed by so many.

Ron was my friend. This broke my heart because I have tried to contact him for two years since his diagnosis.. I missed him and now finding this made me cry. Ron was the kindest, most concerned individual I have ever met!! My condolences to his family. He spoke so highly of all of you and dearly loved his dad and mom!!

So, so sorry to hear of the passing of Ronnie. It is sad that families become so geographically scattered that we only remember each other as children or young adults. Jerry will remember Ronnie at his best.
