Rest In Peace My Friend – Ronald Philip Sr.
Ronnie told me after I hired him – when he had been fired from the factory…. “heather, I am never going back to the factory,” and I said…. “no Ronnie…you are not.” Unfortunately, I didn’t know it meant this. Ronnie rose to become a manager of his own job above following me around the country moving documents….and I am and will always be so proud of who he is. His daughter is getting married soon….and as Ronnie would say, “Don’t get it twisted, girl.”
I didn’t even get to see you and say goodbye. I thought you were working at the hospital, I didn’t know you were sick. I was so proud of you – for as far as you had come – and as well as you have done for yourself, and I will always cherish the time we spent together. I’m so sorry to your family. I’ll find the footage of when we visited them in St. Louis and get it to them. I’ll wait to see you in my dreams. I don’t know what else to do – I don’t know how else to say goodbye.
To those of you who don’t know Ronnie, this is a Youtube channel I made of him when we worked together.
I had two books we were working on – when I find them I’ll put up what we had completed. I just want to scream … NOOOOOOOOOO! Not you!
