To my godfather... You taught me much more than you realized and because of that, I grew up very handy in carpentry and electrical work. And yes, Uncle Ronnie, you always took the time to explain things to me and that made me the man I am today. God Bless you and Sleep Well... we will all see you soon. ~Jack

Sending our sympathies & love to the family of Uncle Ronnie. We know him by that name because he's the uncle of our brother-in-law, Jack White. We only met Uncle Ronnie briefly at Jack & Bonnie's wedding and also at John & Krista's wedding. But he stands out in our memories as a tall, friendly, wonderful man, and we remember how we greatly enjoyed watching him dance at the weddings. We know that Jack & Bonnie held him great esteem and are heart-broken over the news of his passing. We loved Pat Archer's comments on him and his loss. We know he'll be greatly missed, and we send our heartfelt condolences. ~~ Donna & Ross Milley
