What I didn't say. . . at Ramona's Memorial Service on January 2nd, 2011.

I've known Ramona for about 15 years now - ever since my Wife Catherine and I were first married. Ramona's Father had recently passed away and I remember that both her and her Brother Ed were still quite subdued during a dinner at their Mother Vicky's house in Nanaimo, B.C. back during that time. I remember thinking at the time how good looking they both were. Ed, very handsome and Ramona, very beautiful. They just "shined." I was very interested in the appearance of a Canadian and Philippine union's offspring at that time. I believe that Nature likes it when diverse gene pools get together - we get exceptional Children.

My Family has been together for many good times with the Vadauskas Family over the years and we've all spent many Christmases together - more with Vicky and Ramona in recent years because Ed was in Australia and New Zealand. Vicky is super and I consider Ramona and Ed to be my Friends and always look forward to seeing them.

What can I say about Ramona? On Facebook, I said "Beautiful, healthy and intelligent with an excellent laugh, and always good with our Children." One word that comes to me is, "vivid." Ramona simply shined a little brighter than most people.

Enjoy the photos - please click on the images to enlarge.
