loving memory of Jim & Denise

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that i have to write this message to you. The world lost two of the most amazing, kind hearted, loving people today.  Jim and Denise Ruggiero took their last ride together today. Anyone who knows Jim knows he loves his family and how madly and head over heels in love he was with Denise. They had a love like no other. Threw thick and thin Denise and Jim not only stood by eachother but loved every moment of their ride together.  This is a heart breaking tradegy that leaves the Ruggiero/Hannon family with a hole deep inside.

They say the good die younge and Jim was one of the best! Always had a smile on his face and a joke to lighten even your darkest of days. Denise was a beautiful and kind women. Always wore her heart on her sleve. Jim and Denise have two great kids that they couldnt be prouder of. This day is not only the toughest and sadessest  days that they will face but also the scarest. All of us have laughed, smiled, joked, loved, drunk,cried and everything in between with Jim and Denise., This day is such a tradegy and one that still leaves all of us feeling numb.  Anyone and everyone who has ever had the pleasure of knowing them knows how incredible they were. The type of people to give you the shirt of their back and always made you feel welcome and part of the family.

This is when Jim and Denise really need your help. ANYTHING helps, no donation is too small. The family is dealing with alot of greif and a hard rough road up head.  This is a devostating and hard time for Ruggiero/ Hannon family as they lost two incredible people today.  Erin and Jimmy along with the entire Ruggiero and Hannon family really need your help at this difficult time. Neither Jim and Denise had any type of life insurance. They leave behind the light of their lives their son and daughter, brothers, sisters, cousins and parents. No one could ever imagine such a tradegy but to happen to such wonderful and amazing people is heart wrenching.

Help Jim and Denise's memory live on! They took their last ride together, in love and smiling those loving smiles. This is especially hard on Jimmy and Erin, who are left picking up the peices.  I know they are up in heaven smiling down on their family and loved ones; while it breaks their heart that they arent here and to see them in pain. Jim and Denise lived their life to the fullest, and enjoying ever moment of the ride.
