"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
A time to be born and a time to die,
A time to plant and a time to uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal,
A time to tear down and a time to build,
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
A time to search and a time to give up,
A time to keep and a time to throw away,
A time to be silent and a time to speak,
A time to love and a time to hate,
A time for war and a time for peace." Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8
Ronny made the mistake of driving too fast and left this world, leaving a tremendous void in the hearts of parents, relatives, and friends. He will remain in our hearts and memories. Ronny was loved!
