Praying for the family in this loss. I served as pastor of Memorial Baptist in the early 90's and knew Bro. Barrett then. May God be with you during this difficult time.

It is my privilege to know Ronald and have him preach for us at El Bethel. He was greatly loved by the members who were brought to Christ while he was pastor there. Prayers are being shared for your family at this time.

Mrs.Lottis and family, I am sorry for your loss. A great warrior has been called home for his reward. I'm sure Bro.Ronald was welcomed with the words, "well done,my good and faithful servant ". Bro. Ronald was an amazing man with the talent of remembering the names of so many people even when he had known them for only a short while. He was a great witness for the Lord and a credit to his calling. He and your family are loved by many and he will be greatly missed.
