  1. Titi, I was blessed to have you in my life for 33 years and look forward to when you greet me into paradise. Love Nani

  2. “Titi Mona” On behalf of Mami, Papi, Isabella, Jonathan, David and myself, you will be sorely missed. We are much better people for having you in our lives. “I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new I thought about you yesterday and days before that too, I think of you in silence I often speak your name All I have are memories and your picture in a frame Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart.” – Author Unknown

  3. “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.” Psalm 23 God bless you all.

  4. No matter how steep the mountain – the Lord is going to climb it with you. Helen Steiner Rice Ramona was so fortunate to have a wonderful sister and nieces to help take care of her. May God bless and guide you.

  5. Titi, I miss you sooo much! I love you and I will never forget the wonderful memories we had with eachother. I HATE TOO SEE YOU GO BY: Chad R. Kornegay I love to see you smile, I hate to see you go, You have always been in my heart even when times were hard You have always been #1 even when times weren’t fun. I hope to see you again one day I know that you are watching over me even when skies are gray. I can still see your face when I shut my eyes and all I can think about is why? Why did you have to go? It was all too soon. I wish you could come back so I could say “I LOVE YOU” Bye Titi, I love you very much. Isha Cabeza

  6. Dear Titi Mona I wish you were here. I hope you feel much better now with Papa Dios. Mom tells me you have sun, moon and star duty now as an angel…don’t forget to make the sun shine for me… Love Isabella

  7. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. (Rev. 21, 1-4) Our deepest sympathy to the family. Please rest assure that she is now at peace.

  8. Dear Ramona, I was very fortunate to have known you and have you as my dear friend, you will always be in my heart. I will miss you. Dear Carlos, Carla, Cristina and Joshua, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  9. I meet Ramona almost 4 years ago, at the school where my kids and her kids used to go. She was a good friend and a great person, very authentic, she was very proud of her children. I know that a person like her will never be gone, we can keep her alive in our memories and in every single little or huge way in which she touched our lives.. Thanks Ramona for your friendship

  10. Con todo mi corazón para una amiga de la vida. La muerte no es un final, sólo un velo que es por mientras. Hasta luego Ramona, Tu querida amiga, Andrea
