Words cannot express how sadly missed Ronnie will be, my heart breaks for Betty they truly were a match made in heaven. Ronnie and Betty welcomed me and my family with open arms when we first attended St Barts. Having recently lost my Grandma together with the birth of my daughter Elsie both in the space of 4 months, they both made me feel so welcome and since that day have always remained part of my life in one way or another. Ronnie was one of a kind, a true gentleman, loved by many and will be sadly missed.
