Rest In Peace, Ronnie. I enjoyed working with you the past 13 years and always ended up laughing when you were around. Even the time we ran out of fuel in Defuniak Springs while working Hurricane Michael. We both had a good laugh that day. Everyone at Blackwater Forestry Center will miss you. My condolences to the family and friends.
