So I found my brother dead yesterday morning. My opinion he had been since Friday night. I strongly believe foul play has played in this horrific tragedy based on the abnormal characteristics . He was a good man with a heart, sometimes trying, however he was good. To all of our friends we grew up with in Panama City I don't have your numbers to contact this is a mass reach out to our friends and family.

Yesterday my oldest brother Ron was found dead at his home. We are still not sure what happened. I've unfortunately known lots of people that has passed away through the years, but never something like this with someone so close and so unexpected. We weren't the closest brothers but I always looked up to him as a kid and he was the first of us to go to college. He was my genius brother with tons of book smarts and not a lot of street smarts. He was always happy and goofy when I was around and a wonderful big brother to myself, Steve Wishart, and Thomas Wishart and a great son to Paul I. Wishart and Sheila Goode- Wishart. I'll miss you, Ron. Rest In Peace.

My dad has gone to heaven. I'm so thankful for all of the wonderful memories. I took my very first steps towards him (pictured below) I can still hear him calling me Boo. There'll never be a day where I won't miss or think about him but at least I know he's in a better place. I'll always love him ❤ I can't wait to tell my future children about how wonderful and kind he was. Rest In Peace daddy ❤ I love you so much.
