Ronny was my cousin; I went down and stayed with them a week every summer. I lost track of him after he left Johonsonburg. I feel bad that I never got to talk to him. I wish I had known he was over at Pinecrest. I definitely would have visited him. His mom and my dad were brother and sister. You have my deepest sympathy. I always remember him playing the guitar and playing pipeline, and I remember the big train he had in their basement. I tried looking him up a couple different times, without any luck.
