I had to share this with you. At my wedding Aunt Ronnie, Uncle Eddie and Valaria were there. Uncle Eddie wasn't feeling the best so they decided to go home early. Aunt Ronnie and Valaria came up to me and told me about Uncle Eddie. Aunt Ronnie said, "But before we leave i want you to do me a favor. Can you tell me which one of us is your godmother?" It took me a bit cause I didn't want to pick the wrong one...so I asked them to smile and then I knew which one was Aunt Ronnie. Yes i picked the correct one. I will never forget how relieved I was that I chose correctly. We all laughed and Aunt Ronnie was happy that I could tell them apart. Annie

Thank you so much for letting me know of your mom's passing. The thing that I remember most about Aunt Ronnie was her laugh. She was also so genuinely happy when our family came to visit. Losing your mother will leave a big hole but know that she is being cradled by the Lord! I am so sorry for your loss.

So very sad to hear the news of Aunt Ronnie. I enjoyed some very nice visits with her when we would stop through on our way home from the Cities. I know she will be missed by many who loved her. May God gently hold her in His loving arms. Her suffering is over. God Bless her family as you go through this difficult time. No one can replace a Mother.
