    Ramiro you left to soon before we could have some more good laughs together. Each time you delivered an auto after one of your meticulous details it was a party, your big grin and infectious laugh made my day. Love you brother save me a laugh up there.

  • Martha Eslick

    RIP Tio The memories I have of you are happiness, laughter and your contagious smile. When god welcomed you home The only thing God had to fix was your heart cause everything else was perfect. I will miss you !!

  • Sylvia Cortez

    I will always cherish the great memories we all had. Will miss the frequent phone calls he made and said sorry I meant to call someone else. And how he called me “chivo”.

  • Diana Rodriguez

    Life will be so hard without you by my side giving me advice and showing me what true love really looks like. The love that you had for my mother was Unconditional and I’ve never seen any other man like you. You made me so proud to call you my father, I’m gonna miss you daddy so much. You’ll be truly miss but never forgotten.
    Love Always
    Your little girl Nina
