Not famous perhaps outside of Mt. Shasta is one of my heroes, Ron Pollard, my brother-in-law. Every year I run into several teenagers and men in their 20’s who say that they will never forget him. He sits at every baseball or football game, wrestling match, you name it to patch up our kids, or teach them Hunter Safety so that they can go into the woods and hunt properly with their dads or parents.
I really don’t know what I would do without seeing Ronnie most everyday when he comes to bring my parrot cookies and previously to our late doggies. Without telling him, when we sometimes leave the house and are not back by dark, I know I can count on him to come over, turn on lights, put the parrot to bed and turn off my water. He’s such a good brother to me. I’m proud to have him as my family.
