Ronald White, age 70, passed away November 14, 2022 at his daughter's home in Lithia, FL, under the gentle care of Lifepath Hospice.

    Love you my brother, I miss your amazing, artistic, excellence. Now, paint the sky big bro, and I'll be watching always looking up to you, though a brother's eyes, the saturation in the clouds, the sketches in the sun rays, and the strokes from the raindrops falling, always connecting us, I'll be watching for your paint brush, through a brother's eyes.

    Ron, I miss you so much! So glad you are no longer suffering. I only wish I could have held you close one more time. You will always be the leader of the "club" lol!- and my big brother. I have such joyful memories of us growing up. The laughter, dancing and singing. Those good old days in the neighborhood (smiles). These thoughts always lightens my heart. See you on the other side, my best friend. I will never, ever forget how you made me feel when we were together. In the month of may, we will be the same age for five days, and nothing can ever take that away. Love you Always Kia
