    I’m going to miss you so much. I’m so sorry I didn’t see you that night, I’d change it in an instant if possible. How you can really be gone I still haven’t came to terms with. That you shook your mortal coil so soon is unbelievable to me. I hope you found peace now.
    Always & forever your laughter, smiles & kindness will be remembered & shared. Always & forever I’ll ask why. Always & forever I’ll treasure all of it. Always & forever your love & strength carried me through darkness into light. Always & forever I’ll wonder why. Mainly I will love you always & forever.

    I never would have expected us to become as close as we did. You become one of the few people I would consider a truly good friend. I’m so glad I got to see you before you left us all. I’m sorry I didn’t make it by to see your apartment. I will cherish the memories and laughs we had. How when people would think we were “together” we would both just laugh. Or how we would snuggle up and go to sleep and it was NEVER anything sexual. Ever. You were just my friend. And dammit I miss you Ronny!!!
    And to Chelsea and Ronny’s family, I am so sorry for your loss. Ronny was such an awesome person. He is so very missed
