Memories Timeline


  1. To Barbara and my dear cousins,
    We can’t express the sadness overwhelming our hearts. My memories and that of my family are filled with Ronnies kindness, warmth and humor. You couldn’t spend time with him and not walk away smiling. He always had a good story and was the family almanac. Over the years I remember calling him so he could explain the history of this very complicated family. We truly enjoyed listening to the many stories he had to tell.
    We love him and will miss him.
    Richie Rosalie and Jessica

  10. Our deepest condolences to the entire Lanza Family during this very difficult time. My heart is broken for all of you. I miss you so much Ronnie! I can’t believe you are gone. Thank you for your service, for your strong-family values, for your smile, for your laugh, and for the very special person you were. As I think of you, I am reminded of the scripture in the Bible that describes love. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails! 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. I love you Ronnie and I am so thankful to have had you in my life. I wish I could squeeze your face one more time! Love always the La Rosa Family.
