I have very happy childhood memories of Ronette and all of the Sarracino family.   Ronette was my youngest cousin on my father's side (Reed) and was very close in age to my only brother.  We enjoyed family time together on the Reed Family Farm in Floyd VA for family reunions and I will never forget the surprise visits to Providence RI, especially at Christmas on Christmas morning.  "Surpise!  Here comes your crazy family from Virginia to bust in on your Christmas"!  IT WAS AWESOME!  We really had fun and WOW can you get some great Italian food up North. 

While the miles separated us, our parents gave us roots and love for family.  It truley was in the age of our innocence that we knew each other best.

Ronette had an infectious laugh and the most beautiful blue eyes, even as a child.  She was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside.  A very special spirit lived within Ronette.  Though I did not see Ronette often as adults, and I didn't know her like her Rhode Island friends and family, there will always be a special place in my heart for Ronette, as there is for each of my cousins - Sherry and Shannon.  No one can replace Ronette.  She was truley one of a kind.  I am extremely happy that she is now at peace and in heaven with her mom and so many beloved grandparents.  

God Speed and God Bless to Francesca, Sherry, Amber, Uncle Ronnie, Shannon, Joe, Chris, Mike, Joanna and all the extended family and friends.  She truley is alive in our hearts and minds.  Always remember the good times and her love for all of you.  Each of you were loved in your own special way and had your own special relationship with her.   That's the good stuff!   I will be eternally grateful for the happy memories.  But most of all, I am grateful because Ronette is finally at peace.  All my love, Cousin Tammy Freeman Roach - Roanoke, Virginia
