I will remember you for how kind and welcoming you always were to me when I first started dating Dominic and would go to the family gatherings with him.
My fondest memory of you was when Ramon drove you, your girls, Gina and her boys to see us the day I came home from the hospital with Lorenzo, 25 years ago. It was so very sweet and I am glad I have that memory to share.

Rest easy and in peace.

Love, Tiffany & Dominic

My Dearest Ronnie,
I will miss your smile and laughter. And I will always remember the time when you came camping to desert with us. You brought your curling iron and hair dryer. You gave Uncle Adam and I a huge chuckle out of it. Rest In Peace my beautiful niece.

I am so sad to hear of your passing. I think back on all the great memories of you/us during middle school. Our crew was deep and we had such fun times together. Thank you. Your smile, dimples, sweet personality and that hair flip will never be forgotten. Love you.

Dear Sweet Veronica,
I can't be you are gone. It seems like yesterday when we were all small, going to grandma and grandpa's house for Sunday dinners. I will miss your crazy laugh and beautiful smile. I will never forget the time when we went to Black Angus for dinner. I must've been 18 because I didn't have Jordan yet. The waitress was so rude to us. We thought it was because we were young and she didn't think we would tip. You gave the waitress a penny as a tip. You laughed your butt off as we walked out of the restaurant. You were so silly. I'm so sad for our family, especially your mom, sister, brother, daughters, and grandson. Give my brother, Joey a hug for me. We miss you so much already.

Your cuz, Tisha

Dear Ronnie, (Veronica),
Your smile and laughter will truly be missed. You had a funny sense of humor, which I loved and adored. Your laughter was cautious. I will always remember the times you taught me how to rap. ( Unfortunately I stink at it and still to this day ) . I remember when we hung out and we rapped to Salt and Pepper, all the time. You so loved rapping. And you were good at it.
I know one day we will see each other again. I love you my beautiful cousin. ❤️
❤️ Your cousin Nikka (Monique)

With love Auntie Susie and Uncle Bob
