    I was very saddened to hear about Ranny today. Ranny and I were fellow police officers on the Wilmington Police Dept. in the early 1970's. During that time we worked together a lot developed many memories. We working together during the riots and were together in actual combat situations. We became very good friend during our off duty times, and we have many good memories. During this time, I met his wife Sandra, whom I thought was a wonderful person. I will always remember Ranny as a person and a police officer that I have that has a very warm place in my heart....Thank you Ranny for all the great memories....Sid
