Dear Family of Ron DeLaura:

The Carr Family from Chicago (Mt. Prospect) Illinois would like to send our most sincere condolences at the loss of Ron.

I have advised both my parents Richard (Dick) and Sharon Carr, who were overwhelmingly fond of Ron and spent many happy years as great friends of his passing. We laughed together as they shared their memories of their times with him on Redwood Drive.

Undoubtedly, he was a special man and held a special place in their hearts.

Our best to you and your family.
