Ramos, I am missing you so much, brother. How many memories? Countless, that’s for sure. You were always there for us. Who will we depend on now? Who is as handy as you, my brother? No one. How blessed we were when you and Barb moved here, right across the street. Give our love to our loved ones that were there to greet you.
Love you.
Your sister, Connie

Ramos, I can’t believe you’re gone, but I know you’re in a much better place. I have so many memories of us doing things together- mostly eating out. You helped me with so many projects and created many adaptive equipment that helped me to become more independent. I am missing you so much, brother. Love you always, Louis Martinez

I had the opportunity to meet Linda’ s parents a few times during our military service. Mr. Manzanares has always been a wonderful and funny man. He always had a smile on his face and he truly loved his family. I was honored to have the opportunity to briefly speak with him over the telephone in December 2020, right before Christmas. He will truly be missed. My deepest condolences and prayers are with Mrs. Manzanares, Linda, Jamie, Ashley, and David; and other family members and friends. May God be a Comforter and spiritual anchor for you all during this time of sorrow. Keep his memories alive and treasure them in your heart. Rest In Peace, Mr. Ramos Manzanares

I can’t believe you are gone. It hurts so much! 😩😩😩 I loved when you called me a few days before you passed and we just talked about your nurses and the great care you were receiving....I am beyond blessed that I got to speak to you on this night. When we spoke again, it was the day you passed and it will always be in my heart.

Thanks for being an amazing man, a mentor, a teacher, my daddy, grandpa to my kids, and the first man I ever loved. You will forever greatly missed. You always were teaching me and mentoring me on how to navigate life.....but, you never taught me how to live without you. I still need my dad.

Life will definitely be difficult to live without you....and I will do my best, but it’s gonna be very difficult for me.

❤️❤️❤️I love you dad❤️❤️❤️

I miss you so much that it hurts😢😩😭😭😭

Uncle Ramos, your were our guiding light when my father passed away. You helped us when we were so lost. We would have lost so much more than our father. You were there for my eldest brother, which always made Steves heart shine. I will be forever grateful to you for that love you showered on him. May the Lord wrap you in his arms of eternal love and happiness. You niece Marina

My Dearest Uncle. You will definitely be missed by all who knew you. You were so much fun to be around, always joking, laughing and telling stories. Not a bad fisherman either. Such a good man, you are in the hands of the lord now. God Bless You Uncle, love you forever.
