Whenever I think of Ronnie I remember being in typing class with him. Crystal Crisp, Cindy Midkiff, Ronnie and I sat near one another and we raced each time we had one of those timed typing tests. Ronnie usually won and the four of us just had a great time. I think that was our freshman year and it was fourth period if I remember correctly. I also remember being at the Radford/PCHS football game one Friday night and the announcer paged Ronnie. That’s how he learned that his mother had passed away. The last time I saw Ronnie was at Christmas the year before he died. I ran into him at the mall in Roanoke.
