“…I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race.
I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the
crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous
Judge, will award me on that day-and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing…”

    Papa Ron Wow, as I look at this picture and tears run down my eyes I can’t believe that you are gone. You fought the fight and you have finished the race. I am so Godly proud to be called your Grandson. Being with you since November 16th have changed my life and taught me so many things. You gave me clarity when I was unsure about things and you helped me understand tough situations. These last 5 1/2 months with you, seeing you almost daily taught me that we as people have to hear all parts of the story. The peak of my LOVE for you was when I was able to stand in the room with 4 generations, You, my Father, Me, and My Son wow! What a legacy. This is definitely not a goodbye but I will see you later. Love Always and Forever signed your Grandson Ronald L. Bruce Jr./Ronald L. McNeal III

    I Love you Dad. As God allows me the celebration this 1 year anniversary of your going home. As I reflect on our time together, I realized just how special they were. I thank God for what He did for us. I thank God for where our relationship was. I am grateful to God for allowing & blessings me to be able to care for you in your time of need. Honor the mother and father says the Lord in His word. I do hope I did that. I miss you, but you will always and forever hold a special place in my heart. I know you can’t hear nothing I’ve said, I’m just glad I was fortunate to be blessed with the privilege to say while you were among us. Anyone who may read this I urge you please don’t let time run out on speaking & showing those you say you love just how you feel. After the fact is to late. Don’t let animosity build and linger. You may miss your opportunity. Rest in Peace with Jesus till I see you again. Later Dad????
