My sincere condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. May it comfort you to know that our Loving Creator promises to bring back to life those in his memory to perfect health on a paradise "earth" (Acts 24:15, Revelation 21:4). With deepest sympathy.

Dear friends,

I learned about Ron's passing too late to share my condolences in person. Please accept our most prayerful condolences. He will always be in our memory because of his straight-forward, direct and honest treatment of people. I admired those qualities when we were together at Holy Family and continued to respect them after we were no longer working together.

I remember incidents when he showed his inner-warmth and compassion when it could comfort a small child in distress. He served his position with perfection and his support for students' needs as a vocation. He will be missed.

Our prayers are for his repose and for all of you to bear the emptiness his passing with strength from God's grace.

Caesar and Lynda Carrino
