Ronnie, 14 years ago today you were taken from this earth, a day that changed this moms life forever. A proud Marine, serving his country, died for our freedom and now shares a place in heaven with so many hero's. I often think at times how unfair life seems, but I remember what you told me " if I'm going to die, let it be for my country" and you did just that.
Maybe I'm just selfish when I think or say, I want you here on earth with me, your sister, your nephews. God had other plans.
My heart aches each and everyday, you send me your signs, I know you are always with me. You're are love and missed by so many. God bless you my son, love mom.

Happy birthday in heaven, my boy. This morning, I thought of this day a million times, holding you in my arms for the first time. A miracle from heaven was given to me and I was so proud to be your mother.
Than on sept 32004, to returned to heaven. A heartbroken mother, changing my life forever.
For the 25 yrs you were on this earth, you achieved so much in such a short time. Loved by so many, best friend to so many, honored by so many, and now missed by so many.
I hold on to each and every memory I have with you, Ronnie. I can still hear the chuckle in your laughter, the winks you gave me, the bear hugs and your beautiful smile.
I know someday I will see and have those all again. Your sister and nephews love and miss you so much. They got cheated in life not meeting the best uncle on earth. As we celebrate this weekend in your honor, I know you will be looking down and smiling......love mom.

It's been thirteen years, but nothing has changed, time may pass but the moment I heard I lost you feels like a few minutes ago. My life changed at the moment, it will never be the same. Knowing you did what you loved and so proud of all you achieved in such a short lifetime, I still feel so much pain knowing my son was taken from this earth. Today, I will visit you, go to Mass, and remember the wonderful times we had together. I look at all your picture, seeing your beautiful smile, trying to hear the chuckle in your laughter, and feeling your arms around me with those bear hugs.....your signs continue to come to me. I know it's you.....
Your nephews and sister miss and love you. It breaks my heart when they tell me uncle Ronnie is in heaven or they wish they can meet you.
They want you to be so proud of them. Your legacy lives on in each and everyone of them. They have been cheated not knowing you or having cousins.
We will be together someday, I know you will be waiting for me. Until than please continue to take care of your sister....give me the strength I need to get though tough days, watch over RJ, Anthony, and Brian....they love you....God bless you, my son. Love mom.

Last month, on a nice sunny NY day, I went out for a bite in Bryant Park. As I sat down, I noticed a sign covered with leaves. I moved the leaves and found a memorial for 1st Lt. Ronald Winchester. Being a veteran if Israeli Armed forces, I felt an obligation to learn about him. I have found many pages on the internet talking about the wonderful young man he was. Though I never knew him, I know the gift he has given so many of us- the freedom to live and love and sit under a tree in Bryant Park. This note is just a thank you letter for his sacrifice and an honor to his memory and his family.
