I'm so sorry for your loss. It does my heart good to know that he is in glory and hurts no more. I have a lot of good memories of Ronnie in the short time that I've known him.
Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 seem to fit Ronnie "Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of his life God has given him-for this is his lot Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions and enables him to enjoy them to accept his lot and be happy in his work this is the gift of God he seldom reflects on the days of his life because God keeps him occupied with gladness in his heart
