    Ronnie Morris ran his race well, loved Jesus and his family. A wonderful friend and neighbor. His dedication to serving 20 years in the Navy is greatly appreciated by all of us who value our freedom. Prayers continue for Nancy and their family.

    Nancy, my heart breaks for you. Ron is now in a much better place, but we are selfish humans and want to keep them here with us. Please know we are praying for you during this time

      Ran across pictures the other day of you and your hubby, Melody and her man, me and my sweet husband. He’s still in my best memories but I wouldn’t want him to come back for any reason. He’s at his new residence with Jesus… Parkinson disease or Dementia. They might even let him in the choir. Love you guys, Nancy

    That sweet peace that comes from my assurance of where he is today probably asking Jesus hundreds of complicated questions about creation, what makes that tick and that work. Answers that could only come from the mind of GOD.
    The God of creations loves us. How amazing.

      Valerie, poor Judy, she doesn’t stand a chance with those two.
      Ron has been sick for so many years that I can’t be sad for he has a brand new body with no more
      Parkinsons or dementia. Celebrate with us the life he faught to live and the new life he now has with Jesus

      Thanks Steve and Jackie. I can’t be sad for that assurance of where Ron is comforts me. He’s at the feet of Jesus. Steve, you’ll appreciate this. The last song of the service was….Spirit in the sky…..
      He didn’t ask me to have it played he asked our daughter. He knew I’d be to concerned what people would think
      When the song ended everyone clapped and gave a thumbs up. So Ron Morris
