He will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to call him "friend". Gone, but never forgotten. Forever in our hearts.

I won't ever hear the beautiful music from the 1950s again without thinking of Ronnie. A good and gentle man with a ready smile and a helping hand. He will be missed forever.

After cleaning up the room where Ronnie's Celebration of Life event was held, myself, Al and Gail had just driven a short distance away when we saw a double rainbow in the sky. Although we didn't need proof that Ronnie was smiling down on all of us during the gathering, it seems he wanted to give us those beautiful rainbows to let us know how happy he was. Gail took a photo, here it is:

I’ve known Ronnie since I moved to Ocala seven years ago - I lucked in to having he and Jackie as my next door neighbors. Ron has been such a kind friend over the years, I’ve grown to think of him more as my brother. He was the type of man who would give you the proverbial shirt off his back. He’s been there to lend me, never mind all his neighbors, a helping hand on countless occasions.

I’ve shared so many good times with Ron and Jackie - especially Thanksgivings, Christmases and birthdays. This year for my birthday, R&J took me to a Jamaican restaurant they had recently discovered - it was a glorious treat as we all love West Indian food.

Ronnie has especially made the Christmas season memorable for me, in three ways:

First, because his birthday is December 23, and so for years now I’ve hosted a small lunch for him in my home - kind of half-birthday and half-Christmas with the tree up and decorated. I always served (guess what) some West Indian curried recipes he loved. And soon afterwards, on Christmas Day, Ronnie and Jackie would drop by in the evening for a little dessert and Drambuie. Their presence always filled my home with good cheer and holiday spirit.

Second, it was Ron who introduced me to, and set up, the laser Christmas lights I now use for outside the house. He even made a special wooden box to hold them properly in place.

Third, a few years back he gave me a CD of wonderful, Bahamian styled Christmas songs by the Royal Bahamas Police Force Band, some of whom were his personal friends. It’s a cherished part of my Christmas playlist.

So every Christmas I’ll be thinking of Ronnie, with joy, love and sadness.

Ron had many good stories to tell, particularly about his life in the Bahamas. Here’s one I’ll always remember…
As a young boy, Ronnie came by boat with his father from the Bahamas to Miami. After they landed, Ronnie was about to take a sip from a public water fountain. But his father stopped him, explaining that, in Miami, there were separate fountains for white people and black people. Ronnie had been about to drink from a “blacks only” fountain. He was shocked, because in the Bahamas there was no such discriminatory segregation. In his experience at home, white and black people got along just fine together.

And here’s a little incident I’ll never forget…
Ron kindly drove me to many medical appointments. One time, he went to do some shopping after dropping me off, and told me to call him when I was done. Well, instead I asked the receptionist to call a little bit before I’d be finished. So Ron got a call from her saying his wife was still receiving medical treatment but would be finished in 20 minutes and he could pick her up. Ron’s first thought was that Jackie had an emergency of some kind. He phoned her at home but she wasn’t there. The poor man was worried sick until the mix-up got sorted out. Then we laughed about it. So ever since, my secret nickname has been “wife #2” and Jackie and I secretly call each other “sister-wife”. Now the secret’s out.

Dear Ronnie,
As well as these special memories, it’s been your day-to-day friendship, all the little things, that have made you such an important part of my life. I still can’t believe I’ll never again see you out on the porch and exchange chitchat. I will miss you very much. But we all know you got through the gate into heaven, carrying a box of doughnuts for the angels who were nice to you. And we all know you’ll waste no time contacting the powers-that-be, if there’s any holes in that fluffy cloud they give you to sit on.

Thank you for everything, love always,
Linda, Patina & Pietra
