    I think I saw him wandering around Charlotte Hall at autozone parking lot lastnight around 10pm. Except this guy had ripped jeans on and his beard was longer then. He seemed dazed and confused as he walked up to autozone and then stood there for a few minutes, turned around and walked back across the street towards food lion.

          Right because it’s funny to make jokes about someone who died or take shots at a grieving mother he obviously died in very sad way Not suicide even tho that would be very sad to and nothing to make a joke of so if he did Really hang himself you be making jokes obviously you have some issues from some kinda childhood trana or abuse I can’t think of any other reason it be cool to make fun of someone who passed away from something like a head injury or even suicide even tho Ronnie didn’t kill himself I hope realize suicide isn’t funny and I really feel sorry for you must Experienced something horrible in your life to try to cope with it by making inappropriate jokes or just little Kid that nobody’s taught that not ok and no kinda death is funny to make fun of hopefully that’s what it is and your learning suicide not a joke and Ronnie was amazing person who did not take his own life
