My prayers go out to the family of Ronald may the Lord be with ya'll in this time of sorrow. Even though I am not part of the Malone family now I still think of him as my nephew. A few weeks ago he wished me Happy Birthday and I thank him and told him that I loved him and he said I love you to auntie. His last words to me will always be in my heart. I love you dearly Ronald Wade Malone and may the Lord wrap his arms around you in Heaven.

I will always remember the days Ronald would open the junior high gym for us to play basketball pick up games. I will remember the time i sprained my ankle severely there and he carried my heavy butt all the way to my moms car to take me to the ER!! He was a huge supporter of me and all my athletic activities and accomplishments. He gave the best hugs! He would of done anything for me and my family at the drop of a hat. You will be truly missed Ronald! Love the Malone family! Prayers for you all!

Ronald was such a great person. Always giving hugs whenever I would see him. The last time we talked was when he was in the dollar store buying a pair of reading glasses to replace the power he got misplaced somewhere. He will be truly missed we will keep his family in our thoughts and prayers

Hugh and I loved Ron so much. It’s hard to believe he’s gone. I’m going to miss his calls. I always told him that I was so proud of the man he had become. He loved God, family and friends. I was so blessed to have Ron in my life. See you later, Ron.

My prayers are with Ronald’s loved ones! He leaves behind a great legacy. He used Social Media the way we all should, to reach many people about God! If you look over his Facebook page you see four types of posts.Ones about God, his wife, his Children and his Grandchildren. All, the loves of his life. Death is a painful separation from our loved ones, but when you know a person has a relationship with God, there is that hope of being reunited with them. Ronald displayed his love of God and his family, unashamed, for all to see! Job well done Ronald♥️
