  1. To Kay, Kevin (who works for Pate Construction}, Mike and Kelly:

    Our hearts go out to you at this time for your loss. Kay, I knew you when I worked with your sisters at Flormans, Marijane and Patty Jo.
    It has been a long time. I don’t know what happened to your husband, but he was the same age as mine and the thought of losing Ted is unbearable most of the time, anymore. I have suffered a lot of losses the past two years and although you never forget, time does heal. We don’t know your other children, but express our sympathies for you all.

  2. Our prayers are for Ronnie Perko and for all his families. May God bless you all and support you in these very trying times.

    Ronnie’s mom and dad are our special friends. Ray was ‘best man’ at our wedding and both Ray and Jean are godparents to some of our children.

    Pat met Ray in school and were best buddies all their lives. Ray’s mom and dad practically adopted Pat, letting him join in their family activities.

    We send our condolences, and our prayers.

    Pat and Lola Griesan

  3. To Ron’s Family:

    What a joy to have discovered our cousin after all these years…. what a tragedy to have lost him so quickly. Our deepest condolences to you and your family from the families of Frank and Mihela Prince.

  4. Kay and family,

    My prayers are with all of you. It’s not easy, I know I lost Bob 2 yrs ago, but knowing you have friends thinking of you does help. Time will help, but the pain does not go away, you just learn to live with it.

    God Bless all of you, Thelma Golob and Jacque, Rob and Christi

  5. Kay, to you and all your family we express our deepest sympathy and sorrow. I (Nancy) use to live across the street from you on Elmwood, and also used to work with Shirley at the clinic. Neil’s daughter (Buffy) is friends with Kelly. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  6. Kaye and Family,
    I cannot say how sorry I am for all of you at your tremendous loss. Your tragedy is heart-felt by everyone who knew and loved Ron.

    During the long and strenuous negotiations, Ron was the one who stayed upbeat and gave me the strength to continue to fight for the people. I will miss him tremendously. He was one in a million.

    My deepest sympathy to all of you.

    In Deepest Sympathy,

    Jeanne Landreth, LU3267

    P.S. Please understand that the only reason why I will not be attending his funeral is because of my work schedule. If there were someone who could relieve me, I would be there and I will certainly be there in thought and prayer for all of you.

  7. To Ronald’s family,
    We knew Ronald as Ronnie since we lived one house away from him on Mahren for many years in our younger years. Marlene and Peter played with Ronald and others across the three joined yards. We remember Ronald fondly as quiet and pleasant.

    We know your grief is profound and we send our sympathies.

  8. Mrs Perko, Mike, Kelly and Kevin:

    On behalf of the entire Medina family, please accept my deepest condolences for your profound loss. May you find comfort through your grief with family and friends.
