Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest sympathy for your loss. I am Mirabelle Freeland Guidry's daughter, and a family member of Dot and Russell's. I remember when Ronnie was born, the joy he brought. Dot, Russell, Joella and their family have always been close to ours. We haven't met Maria, but would like to. She must be special if Russell chose her. Mama will be 91 next month, health issues will keep her from attending the funeral, but she sends her condolences also. Our prayers are with you. With love, Linda

  2. Renell, I am so sorry to hear that your husband Ronnie has past away. I remember Ronnie & Johnnie from when I went to school in Jennings with them. I will keep you & your family in my prayers. May the Lord Jesus Christ bring comfort to you to help ease your pain of loosing your husband at such a young age.

  3. Only recently did we learn of Ronnie's passing and are so very sorry. Ronnie was one of the most genuine good hearted guys who always had a smile for everyone he encountered. He will be so greatly missed and never forgotten.
