Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Ron was an amazing and funny man. We enjoyed his company and my Grandmother loved him very much. I'm sure she met him at heaven's gates. Much love, The Kennedy-Marzich Families

Dear Dolores and family: Our sincere condolences to you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. As the days and weeks, pass, and as you all return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. Memories are the legacy of love.
Liquid Tears:
The tears flow freely down my cheek each drop a silent word to speak...Sometimes when it is too hard to pray, my tears know just the words to say.. I thank you God, for tears that fall..I thank you, God for that, that You see them all. The words are silent, but they are there. Each one a silent, liquid prayer.

Thou hast taken account of my wanderings; put my tears in Thy Bottle;
Are they not in Thy book?
