Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Florence and family, we are so very sorry for you loss. Ronald was such a great man whom we all loved very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always. If there is ever anything we can do please feel free to call us anytime. xoxo Gina, Abby and all of us at Ocean Heart Group xoxo

  2. Ronnie, as the years passed and we both aged, we saw less of each other. Now you are gone and I still can't quite believe it. I will miss you my dear cousin. I'll miss your larger than life personality, your generosity and sense of humor. You always made me laugh. My deepest condolences to your dear wife Florence, your children Rosemarie, Ronald Jr. and Germaine, and your granddaughters Sabrina and Olivia. Rest In Peace Ronnie. With love, Elise

  3. My deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Ronald.
    May our loving, Heavenly Father, who is the God of all comfort, give you the strength, comfort and peace that you need during this very sad time. ( 2 Corinthians 1:3)
    He promises us that soon, "He will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Revelation 21:4.
    May these words comfort you as they have comforted me for so many years.

  4. Dear Florence, Rosie, Ronnie Jr.and Germaine. We are so sorry for your loss. Ronnie was funny and a truly good man. Of all of my cousins, he was the funniest and the best, and a good listener too. My biggest regret was not seeing all of you more often. I did tell him that I made the best gnocchi. He wanted in, but I never got around to making them. Maybe when I do make them, and they turn out well… I know that's I had alittle help from above. Take it easy and be strong. Peter and I hope that we'll see all of you soon. We love you all!!!
    Love Lori and Peter

  5. My family wishes to express our deepest condolences to you at the loss of Ronnie. What a wonderful friend he was to our father, Peter Scauri. Dad always mentioned Ronnie in our home and how much he loved him. We girls will always remember him as the owner of Mollineri's .

    With Sincere Sympathy,
    Laura, Jean & Maria (Scauri) and Marie Scauri
