Uncle Ronnie announced his arrival with a smile, a wave, and “hey brother.” I don’t know anyone more content, happy to be in the moment. He could carry on conversation anytime, with anyone - usually including crazy stories from his past. I was intrigued by his love for pickled pigs feet. He once took a road trip with my father, insisted on driving, drove the speed limit, and refused any unnecessary stops – not my dad’s favorite voyage. I bet the conversation was entertaining though. We were blessed with the best aunts and uncles who demonstrated true love. I respect how he lived, and I will miss him.
