Papaw Ronnie, you were my hero. You never stopped to think of yourself and put everyone before you. I've never been so proud to call you my dad. Steven, Dodi and I will miss you so much. I think of you everyday! I love you Papaw. Your Daughter, Cassandra N. Brodbeck Cassandra N. Brodbeck, May 22, 2007 Christel, just wanted to let you know I am sorry to hear about Ron. Having worked with R.D. for 25 years I certainly have many memories. Mostly that he was just a great guy who was extremly dedicated to his family and Trinity. Just a great guy to have been associated with all those years. At least he is not suffering anymore. And i will always remember Ron with loving memories. Take care Christel and God Bless. David C.
