To Those I Love ~~~~~~~ When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears, Be happy that we had so many years. I gave to you my love, you can only guess, How much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown, But now it’s time I traveled on alone. So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, So bless the memories within your heart. I won’t be far, for life goes on some, So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near, Never too far to comfort your hurt or a tear. And if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear, All my love around you soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a smile, and say- “Welcome Home!”

Ron, where do I even begin? When I first started at SRS in 2011, we met - we hit it off so quickly and became friends. I will always cherish the memories of us all going out together to clubs, eating, our days at SM scaring each other, talking about ghost stories, talking with Filipino accent, birthday parties, watching comedic videos by Rex Navarette (O, look at Aquaman, he can not go again)! Even though I floated everywhere and have not seen you in 2-3 months but when we see each other - its like I just saw you yesterday. I'll forever remember your laugh and your silliness. You have touched all our hearts with your kind heart and good nature. Will miss you buddy! Rest Peacefully.

Butchie,

Whenever we would see each other it would be like no time had passed. *Big ol’ Butchie Bear Hug* My most memorable memory is of me and Bon cutting your long a$$ toe nails! Lol I love you Butch. Rest in Love my friend.

Brian, my condolences so the whole Diestro Family.

You were fun to work with and be around. Your smile, laughter, patience and good nature will be missed. Your spirit was that of kindness and warmth and caring and I know even now you are looking down with that big smile of yours at all the people who love you. My condolences to your family in this time of loss.

Heartfelt sympathies to your Dad, Brian and family.

Ron,
You will be missed by your SRS family. Your happy, caring and easy going attitude always made working with you a pleasure both for the patients and doctors. No matter the circumstance you always had a smile on you face which lifted the spirits of those around you.
May your family and friends find comfort in your memory.
Rest In Peace.

Butch.. you were the first homie I met through Horace and welcomed me every Tuesday at your house which was considered “guys nights”.. I remember those nights with the knife throwing, the stories and the laughs.. as Horace and i started having kids you became part of our family and always made it to our kids events regardless of what busy schedule you had.. we could always count on you to come and by the end of the day you would tease me by telling Horace that it was time to go play poker cus the tables at village club were waiting for you guys.. my heart breaks that we didn’t get more time and more memories to build but I know you will always be with us and trust me that you will always be honored.. your memory will always be alive with us and everywhere we go we will take you with us.. tell Horace i love him and we miss him and play all the poker games you guys want now in paradise.. I love you Butch but I’m gonna miss you here on earth.. we have lost another great caring person but gained another amazing guardian angel ❤️

Ron, even though I did not get to work with you much, I always enjoyed the times I did. You were always in a cheerful mood, laughing and sharing your happiness with all who were around. I can tell by reading these tributes that you would give the shirt off your back to anyone who needed it, cheer up the stranger walking down the street having a bad day and make the sun shine in the gloom. I treasure the time I knew you and will remember you for ever. My condolences to your related family and family of friends.

You can never find the right words to express a loss of a friend. I'm sure I can speak on behalf of Voices of Praise when we say how much Butch was such a lovable and fun guy to be around, to sing with, and to have as a brother in Christ. We will truly miss you Butch and we know you are no longer suffering. Our condolences to the rest of the family. Our memories of you will live forever and we now celebrate your life. We love you Butch!

Only few people in this life get to experience friends like you. The true loyal ones that your time together goes beyond friendship but becomes a bond that your memories and future moments depend on. That's exactly what you were to us. You were our family. You became that constant, the heart of our group that lifted us with your laugh, your jokes and simply your presence. You were always there for me, for Michael and our family. You always showed up no matter what. Whether it be hanging out somewhere, trying out places to eat, our family traditions or at events for the kids...you were always there. It was you that shook Michael to realizing the magic that eventually evolved into us getting married and having your god kids. We wouldn't be who we are without you Butchie. I can't imagine our family events without you, there's a void in our hearts that no one can ever fill. But I know that you're still there as you have always been, watching over us with your smile. But I'm going to miss you here...more than any good old country song can say. But I thank God that the time you were on this Earth, we were a part of your world...I love you so much buddy...Rest Easy and know we will always honor you.
