He said the words couldn’t express his love for his wife. He couldn’t create enough songs more to describe his lovable wife. Ronnie added when someone telling about the beautiful song he writes, he always says it is because of his beautiful wife. he says the song says it all.
As a genuine human being, she is been always the love of his life, a happy mother, and happiest grandmom. He says she is been so cheerful and ready to face the adventure of life.
