Last To Know
I would really love to hear your voice again, they say that it gets better but WHEN it still hurts you know. There are certain times that will remind me of you. I guess I still still miss you.

You've Got My Heart
Hi Ronnie,

Did you record the amazing track You've Got My Heart back in 1981? If so I run a record label rereleasing soul and funk tracks from the 70s and 80s and I'd love to license this from you. You can contact me at



I do not have a way of contacting you...I was totally shocked to hear your voice Christmas Day...thank you, You could not imagine what I went through that day...I'm trying to get over you but I guess what I felt for you was far more deeper than I thought..needless to say it still hurts & hearing your voice again made me realize that it's going to take a miracle to get over you, so I'll wait on God to move this "wall" that's in front of me, I know I just can't climb
but like an eagle He will carry's just a matter of time, so I will wait with the knowledge of His promise "weeping may endure for a night but JOY will come in the morning" So, I wait. There is something down in my spirit that says God is not through with this situation because anybody else would have dropped this "dead thing" but sometimes you have to carry a "dead thing". Every now & then you have to tell the devil "I'll be back" I do not want to miss the opportunity to see what God has planned for all of us, so I will wait...God is on our side. I love you & I miss you! Always Sandra


What More Could a Man Ask For
Been hearing this song a lot on The Surf 94.9 out of Myrtle Beach, SC.

Here's something you don't know about Ronnie
Mr. Barnes was loved and adored by hundreds of Californians and he turned down a big chance at fame to stay true to his southern roots and the music that has made him give up everything else in order to share it with the world. We miss you Ronnie and will always be proud to call you a true friend. True artists are rare.

PS. If that’s Sandra from your last cali stay she’s a damn fine woman ;P
