We know that Legends are born into this world, some maybe large, but most are small and only around for a short amount of time.

Ronan Lee Curtis Epperson, born June 30th 2017, came out a legend at 9 lbs. 4 oz. and ready to fight. He fought off monsters of all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately legends are only here for as long as we need them on earth.

On October 11th 2017, Ronan Lee Curtis Epperson finally succumbed to the injuries he sustained in battle and went home to his Heavenly Kingdom.

The family of Ronan would like to extend a hand of gratitude to the doctors and nursing staff at Norton's Children Hospital in Louisville, KY for their amazing effort in helping us have as much time with our Little Legend as humanly as possible. They would also like to thank everyone in all the surrounding counties for all of the prayers, positive vibes and well wishes.

Ronan Lee Curtis Epperson will live on through every single person he has touched. We know that he will do great things when he gets to the gates of our Heavenly Kingdom. Here on earth he was accepted onto the donors list and will be able to save two other children with his heart.
