It saddens us to lose such a wonderful angel that brightened anyone's day when you met her. Ramona was famous for her organ playing but also those mean Manhattans that she made at the holidays. Ramona was always such fun to be around and she will be missed by many. May your travel to heaven be a smooth road to peace and happiness.
