Ronnie and I were 1st cousins.Our mother's were sisters. We had many FUN times on Grandma Ellerbrocks farm.We would catch crawdads from the creek.I would help him on his paper route and we enjoyed playing in the barn that had a hayloft.I do have a couple of pictures of him at our Aunt Julie's birthday party and would be happy to send them if someone would give me their address.My thoughts and prayers are with his children and grandchildren. Most sincerely,Janet Heckman Risk
