Today my life has been forever changed. I have cried all day and been surrounding by people who have touched my and Victor's life and I'm overcome with the feelings of love surrounding me. I lost my soul mate and the most genuine person who had nothing but love in his heart for those he carried close to him.

I said to Deb and Brian tonight it seems so weird that some car can bring so many people into our lives that we call family. He loved you all and he showed his love for everyone by being the big 'dick' but you all know that was just his way. You accepted that about him and he knew that. He would have done anything for you guys.

I can't believe this is happening. It doesn't seem real at all. We were just getting to know each other again now that Nick has become and man and will be graduating high school this year and going off to college. It was fun to be able to remember and find one another again and all of the reasons the world brought us together in the first place. It just doesn't seem fair that he was taken from me, from us, all of us, so soon.

I love all of you. Thank you for being the greatest friends to Vic. I mean that from the bottom of my broken heart. Thank you so much.

I have to make all of the arrangements tomorrow. I know it will be a very difficult day for me and my family. I will let Crystal know them and post them up.

Love one another because you never know when that day is your last.

Jackie and Nick,

There are no words that are the right words when something like this happens but let me say this.

Vic held a special place in each persons heart who knew him and was truly a one of kind man, friend, person. There will be many many times that even the simple little things will remind us of him and enable us to laugh, cry, smile and enjoy who Vic was to all of us. In these small ways he will always be with each and every person whose life he touched.

On a more Vic like note:

Best funeral procession ever!!!

and

I hope they have HEMIs in heaven.

If there is anything you need please let us know you are not alone!

It has been about 24 hours since I got the phone call I knew would change a lot of peoples world.

Vic was more then just a guy in a car club. He was a husband, a father, a son, a brother, and a friend. You knew Vic liked you if he teased you that was his way. He was one of the most fairest people I have met and he was not afraid to tell you exactly what was on his mind. Quick to welcome all into his home and then make sure you never went away with an empty stomach.

I met "Team Headtripp" before CAMM existed, before the Chally existed. The first Fiesta Days of many, following up Darty and Toad and a few others. Meeting in a giant parking lot with lots of other Chargers and Magnums. Vic gave me crap at that show because I didn't clean my engine bay. I was a rookie, new to having my own car to show, new to being on my own, just new to everything. But the friendship and the bond I created with both Vic and Jackie that day has not weakened and I am very thankful that they were brought into my life.

I knew how much he cared for Jackie and the way they were raising Nick has made him into the man we all get to see today. His legacy will not die with him because there were so many people that loved and respected him it will live on. We have so many memories with him and he is ingrained into our lives where he will never be forgotten.

CAMM was such a big part of his life and he was such a big part of CAMM and that will never be forgotten. Jackie said last night that its just a car, just a car that brought us all together. Yes it was and we have all gained something from just our cars.

Come for the cars, stay for the people.

The loss will not get any easier anytime soon but eventually, with time, it will not sting as much.


Jackie, Nick, and Victor (Vic's father) please do not hesitate to ask anything from this group. We know you are about to have even more things thrown at you pretty quickly over the next few days and we don't want to crowd you but we also don't want you to think we are turning away from you.

I've had this quote in my e-mail signature for the longest time, and I figured i'd post it here because I feel that this is the way Vic lived his life, and the way I try to live mine....

"I shall pass this way but once; any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer not neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."

R.I.P Brother

Very sad to hear this kind of news. My condolences to Jackie and Nick. I have not been around the CAMM lately and not well known, but met Vic a couple of times. He was a great person, wish I could of known him better.

I am sorry to here the news and send my condolences and prayers to the family. Vic extended me an offer to become a vendor on your clubs forum a couple years ago. From what I see and read he will truly be missed.

My prayers will be with you all on Friday.

I would like to make a suggestion if I might? I think it would be really nice to replace the rotating pictures on the portal page for a little bit with pics of Vic. A little memorial?

I know I haven't been here in FOREVER but heard the news this morning. I'm so sorry for your loss Jackie and Nick and our prayers go out to the entire Ragano family. I wish I knew more to say.

Vic was a great person and would help anyone with anything no questions asked. Definitely will be missed by all that he knew. So sad to see this happen to anyone, let along a great family and way too soon at that.
