In Memory of My Sister, Ronni:
Ronni Rogers was my inspiration, the person I most respected and looked up to, my confidant, my rock. She was brilliant in business and a true innovator. Yet this paled in comparison to who she was as sister, a wife, a parent and a friend. Everything Ronni undertook she did with zest and a spark for life. If you knew Ronni, you would understand exactly what I’m saying. She could light up a room with her presence.
Every day I feel like calling her on the phone, to say hello and ask her advice on so many things like I’ve done countless times before. Cancer took my sister’s life and the world has lost someone who was meaningful and made a difference. I miss her so very much.

“Look at the stars, look how they shine for you.”

Ronni had an incredibly heartwarming smile that made everyone in the room gravitate towards her.
- Michelle Ferreira
Everything she encountered in life she took on with an incredible amount of passion. She was simply inspiring.
- Craig Freitag
Funny, spirited, charismatic, extremely intelligent and personable; Ronni was amazing.
- Skye Callan
Ronni lit up the room whenever she walked into it. She was a blast to be around and could find the humor in any situation, good or bad.
