  8. Daniel Tornil condolence:

    Ramona was so devoted to the church and anywhere she could help, even if it was physically exhausting to her she would do her best and take on whatever tasks were needed. She was always considering other peoples needs and being loving in some way. She for sure is trying to organize some kind of heavenly banquet as we speak — hopefully she will take a break first. Her fun-loving personality, kindness, compassion and her energy will no doubt live on in the many, many people she’s touched. I thank God for her presence at St. Peter and Paul and for those who knew her. Thank you for sharing her with us. I have no doubt one day she will be recruiting each of us to assist in some event or other when we meet again. Until then may her loving presence and undying energy comfort you and sustain you in this difficult time. God Bless you, Dan
