I will always remember Ramona just as seen in this picture, she was a great person. When most adults were treating us like 2nd class citizens Ramona never did. she always had time to stop and talk, laugh, hand out a bit of advise and when needed bring down the hatchet! :), she was street savvy and knew kids like the back of her hand and how to deal with them , but she was always ALWAYS fair. She was respected by everyone, which at that time ( in the 60's and early 70's) was unheard of for adults or authority. Rest in peace Ramona, you have earned your place in heaven , Safe journey lady . keep em in line will ya?
