My heart broke when I heard about Ronnie's passing. He was such a great man and I feel honored to have known him and to have spent many memorable years with him. He was beyond generous, funny, and overall someone that I looked up to. I will be praying and thinking about Ronnie and the Salango family during this difficult time. I am so sorry, guys.
