    Condolences to the Ramirez family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says Jehovah God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.

    I still chuckle at trying to play Spanish cantos for you when Enrique Iglesias populated with “sex and love”!!! Ha, oh mercy that definitely was not Spanish cantos, lol.
    Ricky and I have reflected on so many precious moments with you…you’ve truly touched his life and inspired him to be a better man, father and husband. Thank you for investing in him.

    You’re always in our hearts and thoughts, til we see each other again dancing on streets of gold worshipping Father in Heaven!

    Dad you will be missed every day, especially when life slows down for an hour or two and we remember the good times, funny times, and the difficult times. Thanks for being the best Dad in the world. We love you and until we meet again you will always be in our hearts. May you rest in peace with our Lord God in heaven.
