  1. Ada L. Ramos known to those she loved as .ITA. was my mother. We spent hours talking about life, love and family. She was ALWAYS so proud of her 7 children because of the way they supported and encouraged each other no matter what life threw their way. She loved with her whole heart and taught us how to love each other the same way. Even though she struggled with health issues most of her life, that never stopped her from enjoying her family and all of the times we spent together. Seeing her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren gave her the strength to go on. I will miss her so much and am eternally thankful for God’s gift to me…MY MOMMY!!!

  2. Ada Ramos was my mother. I am the youngest of 7 and considered the .baby.. Although I’ve been abroad the last 13 years due to a career in the US Air Force, her face never failed to light up and she always shed tears of joy when I came home to her. I would be a fraction of the man I am today if it wasn’t for her unconditional love for me and her unwavering support for all of my wild endeavors. The day my wife Bohdana came home to meet my parents, my mother embraced her and didn’t let go. From that moment, my wife knew she was part of our close knit family and would forever be considered her daughter. My wife and I will who celebrated our 11 year anniversary the day she passed, will miss her dearly. Eddie and Bohdana Ramos (Italy)

  3. A Life Well Lived A life well-lived cannot be defined by fame or fortune or things deemed mine. It is never secured under lock and key, or hidden by a mask of falsity. Neither can it ever be bought or sold for pieces of silver or bars of gold. It is never new; instead ragged and worn by continuous use from the moment we’re born. Singed by fire and dusted by grace, its lessons are learned through the trials that we face. The ones who are wise seek the help of a Guide, While those with ego, rely on their pride. In a world where fortunes are treasured in banks, the Savior knows who has knelt to give thanks. And those, by far, are the richest of all who have heard and shared and answered His call. They are the ones sustained every day. They rely on the Lord to show them the way. He stands beside them in sickness and health; His love and mercy are proof of their wealth. And when this life is over and they are called home, a glorious reunion awaits at God’s throne. Where the Father will dance and heaven resound as the faithful servant is presented his crown. And left here to mourn are people like me; though sad, I am grateful He allowed me to see that what really matters, the things to hold dear are memories made and the love that we share. Beautiful lessons are learned in His name for the Spirit steps in to kindle the flame. Love is never lost; friends are never apart. Forever they’re with you, carried deep in your heart. We love and miss you, Holly,Luis and Melissa
