Last night at about 1:30am my family received the news that my grandfather had passed away. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about his situation and how much I hoped that things would get better. Unfortunately, his body couldn’t wait any longer and it was his time to go. I am grateful for the time I had with him and for the time my mother had with him. We learned so much from him in so little time and I am proud to be a Ramirez. Because of him, we have a beautiful, big family that supports us and that will never change. Thank you to all of our friends and family for their love during this very difficult time! Your phone calls, text messages, and statuses on Facebook are much appreciated. I know that he is in a better place now with his mother, Abuela Mariana, and his son, my beloved Tio Mickey, where he can watch over all of us and feel no pain. Thank you again to everyone who has reached out to us. It truly means a lot.
