Another year without you WOW.. Its so hard to accept the fact that your gone forever. I know that your with us spiritually, but I just wish you was here with us physically. NOTHING is the same without you Ron Im heartbroken I never knew I could hurt like this and everyday life goes on and your not here to experience it with us the pain feels different everyday. I try to stay positive and think about all the jokes you made, your smile, your laughter, and etc I try to think of all of the good times to block out the fact that your not here but I feel empty. I just hope you knew how much you are loved. ALWAYS AND FOREVER.

I think about you EVERYDAY. I hear you voice everywhere. I miss your laughter, your warm spirit, and your gentle hugs. I never knew what it felt like to be broken until I lost you. Ill never be the same and Im not sure if thats a good or bad thing, but I do know that Ill never stop asking God Why? Nor will I ever lose faith in him. He has a purpose for everything and Ill be waiting till the day he reveals the purpose of taking you away from us, and still that day I may not understand but Ill TRUST. I LOVE YOU SOOOOOO MUCH AND I WISH YOU WERE HERE WITH US.

I came across this on the internet and it really touched me deeply. Why??? I have just one son of my own, reminds me a lot of Renard; he too is around the same height, plays and loves basketball, video games, etc. He's just 16 years old. Can't imagine the kind of pain and hurt that comes behind losing a child. My condolences to the family.

My deepest condolences to the entire family. Words cannot express how heavy my heart is. I cannot even begin to imagine what you all are going through. I pray you all find comfort in knowing Ronnie's death is not in vine, he has definitely touched the lives of people all around the world. And, he has helped so many people in a way that he probably never imagined. He is truly an angel. Praying that God provides strength and comfort during this difficult time.

WE never knew Renard but he appears to have an extremely fine young man. His family's tribute to him was so touching that we can not find adequate words to describe how moved we are. We are complete strangers and still can't think of any greater personal loss than what the family is experiencing. Are hearts go out to all of you.

We would like to express our sincere condolences to you and your family. When Renard would come outside to play with our son, he's always shown respect and he was, indeed, one of the sweetest young men I've had the opportunity to meet. He may be gone from our sight, but never from our hearts and he'll never be forgotten. We will continue to pray for you all and know that we are here. We pray that you find comfort in the constant love of others surrounding you. May peace and comfort find you during this difficult time.
