    I am at a loss for words and my heart is broken 💔. The tragic events that have shattered our families by taking not just one brother but all 3 will forever haunt me. I will miss the smiles, humor and the infectious laughs from both Uncle Ron & Uncle Pete. They have both made a difference in so many people’s lives and will be greatly missed. My heart pours out to Kelly, Daniel, their chdren & grandchildren and grandma through this difficult time. I love and miss you all.
