I came across this site by accident. I knew Ronnie and Kenny all my life. They both had a big affect on me. I don't know what I would have done without spending time around their house, which I have had many dreams about. God bless Bob and Tess. Tess was probably the wisest person I had come across. Ronnie had inherited that. I have often wondered about Ronnie where he was and if I could find him, as I was not able to visit Meadow Drive because of my father. Any way best of luck Ron in your new domain. I still think of you.
