"My dear cousin Chuck,
Each year that passes we miss you more and more.  Vince carried on the family tradition on our annual cook out with family and friends.  It is something that your Dad (Uncle Pasquale ) Charlie Ranzino started many years ago on "Ranzino Hill" in Marquette Park, just outside of Gary IN.  The tradition continues.  This year we ask for your prayer for your bright and lovely granddaughter Lauren Vandiggelen who is taking the bar examination on 07-26-2016 and 07-27-2016.  It is your birthday and my Mom's birthday, (her great Aunt Dorothy). and her cousin Farrah Ranzino I know that your prayers are with her.  I love you and you will be Forever Missed dear cousin"

"Dear Cousin Chuck,

Memories are all we have left now. As a young kid you were like a big brother to me. I will miss you and all the great times we had both as kids and as adults.

I know you are in a good place now. You will never be forgotten."

"My dear cousin Chuck,

Oh how we will miss you.  You were born 2 days before me, as children you never let me forget that you were "older" than me. I remember the summers we spent as kids, picnics on "Ranzino Hill" in Marquette Park in Indiana. Time you spent with us in Chicago. Meeting my best friend Beverly (nee Snyder) you fell in love and marrried her.  Your raised five beautiful children; Joseph Vincnt,Mariann (Bubba), Michael, Susan and Christopher; and are grandpa to seven; Farrah,Valerie,Chuckie,Anthony, Lauren, Raegan and Riley.  

You were like a brother to me and my brother Joe.  Always kind and supportive.  You made me laugh at time when I wanted to cry. You gave me strength when I needed it most.

You have gone to a better place.  You are with your beloved daughter "Bubba", Your siblings; Sam, Violet and Paul. Only Mary and Georgeanne remain to share our loss.

You are gone but will never be forgotten. I love you, miss you and you will always be in my heart"
