Edward Jerome Saffo grew up in the Centralhatchee community and was known as “Ronnie” to classmates.
Ronnie was the first of my youngest sibling The Late Miss Deborah Elaine Ford AKA “Boot” two children.From his birth I loved that child as if he was my very own.I help nourish and care for him until he became a little lad able to walk on his own.When he became a man and was able to put away childless things, I longed to gather him together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings,but he wouldn’t let me and now I will not see him again until that Great Day when My Lord & My Savior Jesus Christ returns to gather all of His children home. What a day,what a day that will be.Ronnie knew how much his auntie loved him,but God loved him best and wanted him for a time like this.Nephew,R.I.P.Aunt~Barbara Ann~
I remember Ronnie from when we were teens and rode mini bikes all over Centralhatchee and surrounding areas. He had a Honda XL125 and he was so proud of that bike. Rest in peace my friend, I wish I’d stayed in touch.
I don’t know you personally, but you will be missed. Ronnie, your death is a reminder to live each day like it is your last. I’m sorry that you are gone from your family. But you are here with us in spirit. I wish that are paths would have cross, like your loving aunt, I will see you in heaven. My heart goes out to your family. With what your aunt wrote, you were someone special. God Bless.
