Ron, was my father’s best friend first, cousin second. They were BROTHERS. you mess with one, you messed with both. Ronnie welcomed me into his home when I had nowhere to go. The stories my Father told me of the two of them can only be described as legendary. Danny, your dad was a great GREAT man, and he’d be proud of you my brother. some of my most treasured memories are of you, and your dad.
