I wrote a memory but do not know whether it arrived.
There are so many memories of Ramona and her parents for over sixty three years July lst. Ramona loved children and always treated ours so generously and she always wanted to keep updated on their lives. We helped move Ramona and her Dad Charlie to their home in Springfield after mother Ruby passed. We went out to eat together and played pinochle when we had so much fun and laughter. I already miss her friendship greatly.
