My sincere sympathies to all who knew Ramona and especially her children. I will miss bringing food and coffee when we would visit. I'm going to miss us drinking coffee listening to Epifanio and Gabriel talk, which they could do for hours. :) She was a wonderful mother in law ❤ and she will be missed by many. She loved Epifanio and would serve him. They are together ❤
