  1. As a child growing up, I viewed Dennis and Ramonda as my uncle and aunt. In my child mind, all adult relatives around the age of your parents were uncles and aunts. Actually, Dennis and Ramonda were my cousins. Our immediate family lived away from most of our larger, extended family, so we didn’t see the larger family often. I do remember those occasions when we would gather together and I especially remember the kindness and tolerance of Dennis and Ramonda towards me as a rambunctious child.

    As an adult, Dennis and Ramonda impressed me with another aspect of their lives…their faith in God and walking in that faith. I am sure that Ramonda is standing in His presence now. She will be missed on this earth, but has now come to her eternal home. I hope to see the Almighty, Ramonda and the rest of my family again when my time comes.
