Mi Amor ha pasado un ano de que te fuiste, y no ha habido un dia que no te recuerde, ha sido un ano muy triste y de mucha soledad.
Me haces mucha falta dejaste un vacio tan grande en mi alma que
aun no tengo con que llenarlo. Espero que al pasar del tiempo encuentre un poco de consuelo y resignacion a acostumbrarme a
la falta de tu compania, claro diras que tengo otros intereses y tienes razon, mis hijos mis nietas y mi madre, tambien amigos. pero nada es igual que antes. tu fuiste mi companero, mi confidente y mi apoyo diario. Te extrano como el primer dia. Te amo y te amare hasta el final de mis dias,

Excerpt from "Kico" by Ramón Pérez
"I never really thought about my own death, or about where I would someday be buried. By default, I suppose that I came to think that I would be buried at Holy Cross. Although I am a veteran, I never thought about being buried in a military cemetery. My military service was not particularly notable, and I would feel unworthy of burial in one of those military cemeteries, like the one that I see every time I visit my mother in San Bruno, the one with the endless rows of crosses and stars of David. No, if I ever thought about it, I probably decided that I would be buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, under lovely cool, green grass kept moist by the Colma fog, close to where my father, Armando Zertuche and Joe DiMaggio are buried.
All of this thinking changed on Mother’s day, 2005, when my son Kiko died in a car accident.
We found a burial plot for Kiko in a corner of Mountain View Cemetery, next to a small tree, which I hope will grow to give him shade in the afternoon. Mountain View is a far cry from Holy Cross. It is in the desert, next to El Ranchito storage and U-Haul, has no permanent buildings, and is home to several feral chickens and roosters. No famous ballplayers are buried there, and the desert grudgingly gives up the little green grass that manages to grow there. Elena wants to be buried there, next to Kiko. And I want to be buried next to Elena. When we got married, I recited, from Ruth: “Your people will be my people, your god will be my god, wherever you go I shall go also, and where you die, there I too, shall die.” I can see now that I will be buried in the desert among this desert people that are now my people."

Ramon was a passionate foodie and more recently lived for his granddaughters. I'm lucky to have had him in my life. He was one of my mentors and was one tough SOB. He got me into blue water fishing and we drank tequila and smoked cigars. Some of my favorite memories. Ramon was our rich uncle in so many ways, that pursued love and passion and was never afraid to sing out loud. He sang beautifully at my wedding. He treated me like I was his son.

Bendito sea Dios que lo puso en nuestro camino pues fue una Bendición en nuestra familia. Quedando nuestro corazón partido Que Nuestro Señor lo lleve con el a cantar junto con sus Angeles Maria de Jesús Yñiguez Gallo. Chata.

This picture of Ben, Ramon and Elena was taken in 2015 as Ramon and I were off to return older brother Max home to Ensenada. (Max took the picture). We traveled down the Baja coast with all the beautiful scenery to visit Ramon's two properties. It was a very amazing trip. We went to the fishy soup restaurant in Ensenda for the best fish tacos I've ever eaten! We drove round Ensenada to see the historical sites and went to a winery to taste some reds and eat cheese with Max. We then left Max at his apartment.
It was just like our friendship in general. We would do some extraordinary things. Go to baseball Giants games at Petco Park in San Diego with my S.D. friend Mark Gomez and the Garcia family, his favorite restaurant in Coronado with Elena for Brunch and several of his opera performances in Davis, especially his lead as Lt. Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly, Rodolfo in La Boheme, and his starring role in the Impresario! In the Impresario, his character had two girlfriends who he wanted to star in the opera. He walks them to front of the stage to present them to the audience and they are so tall they bend in half to kiss him on each cheek! I turned to his Mother and said, " that's our Ramon"!
He was a lawyer too!! We worked together at the California Department of Health Services where we worked on a legal-health project in the 1980s. He was a great help to me in getting my Masters Degree. We became friends and I never knew a more talented person!
May God keep him close in His heart as he is in ours,
