I have many childhood memories of RONNIE. After my dad, Tildon Hair, passed away in 1988, my mom keep in touch but we rarely saw him. I remember him playing the guitar, while my dad drummed the back of an old broken guitar. He was a sweet man that loved my family and always made our trips to the keys more memorable. My sister and mom are praying for your family and send our love to you all. We will always remember his kind face and the his sweet smile that showed his joy for life.
