To Ronald's Family, I too share in the memories and I offer my condolences to the entire family. Ronald and I go back a long ways. Back to the year of 1972 when I first met Ronald. The next year he and I were partners in the Grocey store and later opened a Resturant at the same location. Later in 1973 we opened Harden and Holiday Liquor store and remained partners in that business for seven years.I later sold Ronald my part and I went on to a career in Law Emforcement and when Ronald moved to Augusta we lost contact with each other. I have often thought of him and wished the best for him. I have missed him over the years and I will continue to miss him now. He was a great friend and business partner.

Dear Judy, Mike, and Mark, Henry and I were saddened to hear about Ronald. He was such a good man. I know he thought of all of you as his children. He was sooooo good with your Mom. I know he loved your Mother, and I am sure he is glad to be with her again. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We love you, Karen and Henry

My warmest wishes go out to the family that Ronald left behind. He was a very nice and patient person that gave a lot to Georgia Mae and her family. He is now in a better place where he can be at peace.
