Christopher Ramos grew up in the same city as the woman he would one day marry, but they didn''t meet until 2001, at the wedding of mutual friends. They themselves married in January 2003, and Ramos shipped out for the Middle East a few months later. Lance Cpl. Ramos, 26, of Albuquerque, N.M., was on his second tour in Iraq when he was killed April 5 in Anbar province. The couple last spoke about a week before his death, and they talked about their 18-month-old daughter, Malaya. "He loved her more than anything in the whole world," Dianna Ramos said. She said her husband entered the Marines to better himself, although he also aspired to serve as a police officer in Albuquerque, where his brother is a firefighter. "He was a wonderful husband, a great father," Dianna Ramos said. "He was supportive in everything that I did. I was always supportive of everything that he did. We were each other''s two best friends."
