A letter from Ron's wife Lynn
Thank you for all the prayers.
I would love the Cursillo musicians to join in our mass. Pat Towers will handle the music distribution.
I wanted to share that Ron loved Cursillo. Everyone in Cursillo has a special place in our Hearts. Our son and his wife made Cursillo in Georgia. Ron’s youngest brother, Rick , made Cursillo in Fort Wayne Indiana. We carry on the tradition.
Ron was a strong man. He often would stand in the back of the church during Cursillo masses, with his arms folded as though he was on guard protecting this precious gift, our Cursillo brothers and sisters. He was a Lieutenant at Attica. His job was to protect and serve. His heart was strong and his wit would make you laugh. I loved this guy for fifty years. He was my rock.
Many times he carried my guitar and sorted instruments to mass. People thought he was a musician but Ron was my roadie. I loved him dearly.
So just a mass for now, but Ron requested a celebration of life to be done later. My family and I want to plan this for him and we hope to have it in the summer. I would be so honored if my Cursillo brothers and sisters would join my family in this celebration.
Please join us at mass this Monday, 10:45 am, St. Martha’s Parish, 10 French Rd. Depew. We begin the celebration and Ron’s fifth day.
