So many wonderful memories . You were kind and patient with this pesky younger cousin that wanted to play school with your comic books.

What a wonderful, generous, warm hearted and kind person to have left this earth. I could go on. There should be more Ramon's on this planet. He was a great complement to and husband to Karen...they fit just right. He was always available to help when he was needed. And whatever you do... don't put the notion in his head that you were looking for that certain record or album from days gone by...unless you intended to get it...because he would do the research...and find it. He will be deeply missed by his friends and family. Ramon is...for sure...in a better place. Love
