    I met John and Angie at Saugus Rehab! What a loving couple! I once else John how they kept the marriage together for so many years, and his response put the biggest smile on my face. He said it took only two words,”Yes, Dear” Rest in the Lord‘s arms, John! You put up a valiant fight! Now is the time to rest and recoup! To the family, my prayers are with you in this sad time!

    God bless you, Bob for being so attentive to Angie and John!

    Friends since we were 12, your Best Man, Patriots season ticket holders for 40 years and most of all buddies. Although age and health separated our later years you have always been in my prayers, especially today as I have to say goodbye.
    My prayers to Angie and Bob Ragucci to help them through this sad time. President Biden once said “the day will come when you will remember loved ones with laughter rather than tears,” I sincerely hope that day will be soon.

Send your condolences.
