To Cousin Ronnie's Family,
We are so sorry to hear of his sudden passing. He was so good to my father when he was ill, and came to see him often during his long hospital stay in Boston. Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend the services on Tuesday night, but we will be thinking of you all and keeping Ronnie in our prayers.
