    Ronnie and my Mama(Connie McDowell Sellers Gentry) were more like best friends than cousins which made us close also. We loved Ronnie and will miss him terribly. He and Mama can dance it up in Heaven ❤️

    I hate Ronnie is gone. But now he gets to be with other parts of our family and friends he hasn't seen in a while. One day it'll be our turn and until then I hope he's happy as well as the rest of us. I love you girls and stay strong. Do what you feel is right because that's what your dad would do.
