It is with great sadness, that I received the news of the death of my friend, and brother in Christ, Pastor Ronnie Bower. I am honored to have met him, and hosted him in my home. I was also honored to have visited with him, and to have ministered The Word of God in his home church. My heartfelt feelings of sympathy and sorrow extend to his entire family; especially to his beloved wife, Eileen.
Pastor Ailton and Vaumeria, Thank you for being such gracious friends of ours. I know how much Ronnie loved both of you. I appreciate your sympathies. Love you both and am looking forward to the coming of our Lord when we can all be together in Heaven.
Eileen, I am so very sorry to hear this. I have often thought of you and Ron. His smile always cheered me up. My deepest sympathy.
Sorry to hear of Brother Ron’s passing! We know he will be greatly missed here, but welcomed by many old friends and his Lord on heaven’s shore. I plan on joining him one day soon…and the way things are looking in our world these days…maybe sooner than later! Ronnie was a good insurance agent, a good teacher, and a good friend. Love and Prayers to you Eileen as you await the day of reuniting.
Condolences to all the family.Prayers for you.God Bless
Awe…My heart goes out to you Eileen 💔 Ron has entered his eternity home. I am so happy to have known him all these years. God be with you and we love you !! 🙏🏻🙏🏻
Ronnie Bower only you would have your home going on my birthday, what can I say! Here is what I say…Ron Bower was a good friend, he was a good insurance agent(his agency insured us for many years), he was a good story teller(sometimes it was hard to know fact from fiction) Ron never met a stranger(even though at times he was a bit strange) he enjoyed some of the same things I enjoyed ( food and lots of it; like cashews, and a good hamburger, and hors d’oeuvres better known as a grilled hot dog, oh don’t forget steak we liked steak) above all Ron Bower loved the Lord and he had a soft spot for missions. Ron is now with Jesus and I am looking forward to joining him soon. Are you??? Jesus loves you and died so that you could receive forgiveness. Remember God is not willing that any should perish but that all would receive forgiveness. Lets all plan to join Ron when the time comes. Blessings on all especially Eilene, John, and all the family members
