We are so sad to learn of Ms. Fain's passing  today. We have been close neighbors on Bethlehem Church Rd. since 1998. However, my relationship with Ronnie goes back further to our days at Rockingham County HS. Tho I'm not certain exactly what Ronnie might've told his Mother about me, she was Always the nicest Lady/Neighbor and always waving at this neighbor whether from her mailbox or riding by in her SUV and beeping and waving at me doing endless yardwork. Tho I never had the honor of spending much time with Ms. Fain, regrettably, there was never any doubt from the always present smile on her face how big her heart was. Ronnie...our heartfelt thoughts and prayers during this time ...and please do not hesitate to reach out if you need me to do anything that I can handle for you and the family during this time. Haven't seen you for awhile and no clue about what you're up to...miss you driving your Large trucks by and at all you are doing well ! Leave me a note in our mailbox if I can assist in any way. We will join you in missing your Mom...she was special ! Coach Watson.

Ronnie Lee, so sorry to hear about your Mother. We conversed on Facebook and I had received a card at Christmas saying to call her soon. So sorry I didn't call right away. The miles have always been an issue keeping me parted from my family of which your mother was the last. I will always remember her with love as I have your father. May God give you comfort and know I wish I was able to travel and be there for you. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
