My heart reaches out to this wonderful family. Ronnie was a wonderful and dear neighbor. Sorry to miss the services, I had to leave for Fla to spend the holidays with my family.

Prayers and hugs to your family! Ronnie was a great neighbor and friend! What fun my parents had with Paul and Ronnie-talking over the backyard fence, at parties, or enjoying dinners out together. Many laughs, cocktails, and fun adventures created stories to be shared and memories to be treasured. I have no doubt the
Four of them are sharing a toast in their heavenly home!

Sheri, Cyndi, Doug and family,

So sorry to hear about Ronnie. I was blessed to be able to see her at Figaretti’s a few years ago when I was back in Wheeling. We shared a lot of great memories and laughs from your house on Zitko Terrace. She was a remarkable woman and full of life!

The world is darker with the loss of Ronnie. She was such a bright soul. I loved her vivaciousness, and she was the definition of love and light. She was an inspiration in how to embrace life at every stage. Condolences to all of the family on such a big loss.

To Doug, Cindy and Sheri and the rest of your families,
I spent many a day growing up over at the Bissett home. Both your mother and father always made me feel so welcome. Your dad sang at my wedding & never did I ever see them that I did get big hugs and kisses.I moved to Fl. In 1991 and even then when I was home and saw them it was hugs & kisses. It is so hard losing your
Mother. My prayers and love is sent to you!
