    Ronald today I was looking at a picture we took on the Senior trip to Disney World with you, me and Ron R. (Ralph F. snapped the photo) and thought about you and Vance. Y’all were like brothers to me and I still remember your hard working beautiful mom. We’d be hanging out after school when your mom arrived home from work. She was always kind, pleasant and accepting of your friends. I could easily tell from your rapport how good you all were to each other and what a wonderful mom she was. Beautiful family to which I offer my condolences. God Bless
