    To Sandra Ramsay-Marshall, your children Ronald, Cassandra and Dave Rene, we, the Thorne family offer our deepest condolences on the passing of your husband and father. Ronald’s mother and our mother were friends of longstanding, and we knew Ronald as well from our attendance together at the Kew Pilgrim Holiness Church, Tudor Bridge, St. Michael. Some of us were fellow students at Wesley Hall Boy’s School, as well as Combermere School. Ronald was known in high school for his independent thinking, and his love of education. In particular, while a senior, and Prefect, he displayed a love for the use of the English Language that was beyond what was common for boys his age. As was expected of a Prefect, he was charged with the authority of keeping order among the younger students. This included writing up any student guilty of an infraction of the school rules. Ronald was more than familiar with the English dictionary, and recorded that one particular student was guilty of ‘obstinate contumacy’, a description which may still baffle some today. Ronald would visit our home on occasion, mostly, it seems, on Monday evenings, and at the end of the visit, some of us brothers would walk him half-way home. Life took us away from each other, but he kept alive the relationship between his mother and ours by visiting her every time he was in Barbados. We mourn with you the passing of a friend, husband and father. We did not know of your passing until today, September 6th. This time, we could not walk you half-way home, but travel safely, and rest in peace.
