I will miss our reminisces of times together starting from the 50"s and especially at Churchland HS until your passing. We have stayed close since you lived just down the street from our home for the past 40 years. Your memory never faltered. I smiled talking of things like riding in the back seat of Daniels red 59 Pontiac convertible with the top down cruising High Street and pulling into the Dixie Drive and having burgers served curbside. l laughed at all the gambling periods past and current (Cards, dice, throwing for the line, etc ) between us, family members, friends, my parents, including my father in law which could fill a novel. You even came with Faye and myself to Atlantic City once visiting the casinos on the boardwalk. There were few labels of beers, spirits, or wines we didn't try at one time or another together. Our fishing for flounder at Wachapreague, nights at the bridge tunnel pier, catching rockfish on the West Norfolk drawbridge turntable using cane poles, and on the Elizabeth and Nansemond rivers. Riding on the farm in the old Studebaker. Shooting pool downtown upstairs at Jakes. Bowling at Portsmouth Bowl and the one night there when Faye beat all us guys. Those many coins we put in the pinball machines in joints around town trying for three in the blue. You never let us forget those times over the years. One thing is probably a fact with everyone whom ever met or knew you was we could never win an argument with you even when you knew you were wrong. You wouldn't give in so we just gave up. Faye and our family loved you and made you our adopted family member since you ate many meals with us, and were around our home for family functions such as birthdays and graduation celebrations. Surprisingly at certain times you were even willing to lend a helping hand. Our grandson Joseph had a fondness of you and curiosity about your life and always came down with me when we visited you at your house. You never got a drivers license but friends(male and female) came and took you wherever you wanted to go. Your mother kept that special love for her youngest child and always knew you had good friends that would always be around in times of your need. Faye and myself tried to assure her as long as we were here you could depend on us in times of need. I am going to miss you answering the phone saying "Yeah". There is a void now and I most certainly will miss you good friend.

I am so very sorry to hear of Ronnie's passing. I did not know until this morning (1-13-19) that he had passed. Ronnie was so good about visiting my Husband when he was alive and Ronnie shared many meals with the two of us. Tommy always enjoyed Ronnie's visits and I am sure the two of them are visiting in Heaven. Bobby, if there is anything I can do for you Please let me know. Bobby, PLEASE accept my sincere condolences.
