Ron, we go way back 12 years through all those years you stayed a loyal friend. You visited me and we had our chats. We spoke two weeks ago and you told me all if well not to worry and you will visit soon! I am deeply saddened learning about your loss. You will forever be in my heart. My thoughts and deepest sympathy to your family.
With my love,
Your Mamma Laskero-Mary

I don't know where to begin Ron and I go back 10 years ago we were in a relationship and we live together with his beautiful daughter Taylor and their puppy Peyton after two years life took us both to two different directions but we always remained friends especially the close Bond he and my mom had I just had seen him not too long ago for a short visit as he visited my mom a couple times last year for his favorite pasta dinner he had told me he had some stomach trouble and had to have the surgeryand then he never went into anything else just always kept positive and upbeat like he always loves I am just learning at this very moment that my friend is gone and my heart breaks rest in peace

Rest easy. We had many discussions about life, retirement and other things. Gonna be strange not getting those calls about all the changes with technology around at&t. Didn't see this coming. Always a pleasure when we got together..
