Dear Mrs.Vilches, Carlos and Maria -
I heard of Ramon's passing ironically at the funeral of another Green Mountain alumni and good friend, Doug Carr. Ramon was my best friend at Green Mountain, and we had many many memorable experiences. Unfortunately our life paths crossed only once afterwards, when I met him at the King Soopers in Lochwood during the 1980's. He was a great friend and I always enjoyed talking with him about the big things we always talked about in high school. He taught me a lot. God bless him and all of you. Both Ramon and you will be in my prayers.

Dear Mrs. Vilches,
I've been meaning to get online here and leave a message ever since I heard of Ramon's passing so many months ago already. Not being a writer like my brother Chris, I'm at a loss of words wxcept just to say that like my other brothers who have written, I met Ramon 20 yrs or more when he and Chris were roommates in Boston and visited often when I was still single. He was alwyas sa great guy and a lot of fun and would 'give' as good as he 'got' -- I used to call him Raoul and practice my Spanish with him (never was sure whether I really said some of the 'offensive' things he translated like "Well, that's pretty close, but you actually just asked me how my cow's but smells...") and when he found out that my baptismal name in the old Italian church was Jacomo Guseppe (James Joseph), I was there-after Jacomo Guseppe or JG and he was Raoul. He was a great guy and a lot of fun and VERY intelligent -- I LOVED talking history with him as it's the subject I taught for over 35 yrs before my retirement just this past year. Ramon attended our wedding just before they moved to Seattle and that was the last time I saw him though we always hoped to see him again one day and he always said through Chris that if we ever did get to Disney with our kids (never did and now they're in college) he'd hook up with us and show us around Miami and Tallahassee etc. We're very very sorry for his loss. We know he was a great friend to my brother Chris and it's true that we all always really did ask after him and hope that we'd see him again. I hope your faith carries you throuth. I have NO DOUBT AT ALL that Ramon is in Heaven with his Dad and the dogs and cats he loved that predecesed him and we'll all be there one day too. God Bless You and Your Family. Jim Fiacco.

Dear Mrs. Vilches and Family: On behalf of the United Way of Snohomish County, please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of Ramon, who worked here for several years in the 1990s. We only just heard about it from mutual friends and have spent the morning mourning his loss and remembering all the good he did while he was here, not only in his position as Vice-President in charge of Finance and as the "Unofficial Computer Whizard" in the office, but as a fun and friendly and caring individual who always brightened up the office and our moods. Ramon actually hired me as his Financial Assistant almost 15 years ago, and he was a joy to work for. He set a wonderful example for everyone on the team and for everybody in the office generally, both as employee and as coworker and, particularly, as a genuine friend to everyone here. I can tell you honesty that he helped to improve the lives of many through the financial talent and computer expertise that helped us to stretch our dollars as far as we could while he was here, which is the point for us so often, but also directly, and I am an example of that. If Ramon hadn't hired me despite the fact that i didn't have the bachelor's degree which some of the candidates had, but hired me because, and I'll never forget it, quote, "No contest. I picked the good hearted human being over the number crunchers." If not for that, I wouldn't be where I am now, and for that I have always been grateful to Ramon, even though we lost contact after his move to Florida. I hope that it helps to realize that even after all this time, Ramon has always been remembered fondly and is still in our hearts and prayers. God Bless. Sincerely, Pam Crawley, Virginia Mayer, Suzanne Guffre, Tom Boyington, Theresa Reid.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss. I grew up in Boston and met Ramone at MIT years ago and have lived in California almost 20 years now and when Ramone visited a couple of years ago he and Chris and I took a drive up the coast and camped overnight and had a great time. Ramone was always a very friendly and easy to know person and I am very sorry to hear of his loss.

Dear Mrs. Vilches and Family: I just want to say that Ramon was a truly wonderful man and I am very sad to hear of his loss. I will always remember Ramon as the friendly, sincere, helpful person he was from the day I met him when I moved to Boston to take a job at my brother Chris's agency and he helped us to move my stuff into my new apt and after a couple of years when I decided to go back to college he helped me A LOT with the financial planning and hunting out scholarships and grants and loans that I never would have found out about myself and making the applications etc which got me into Boston College and ultimately my Bachelor's in Fine Arts. When I moved to Seattle I kept telling Chris how wonderful a city it was and since Ramon's friend Eric lived there, when they both moved there it was like old times. Everybody in my family always loved Ramon. He fit right in with us, we're a family of talkers and jokers and he always fit right in. It was honestly like having an adopted brother in addition to the six I have. Even though I hadn't seen or talked to Ramon in a number of years now, I always felt as if we did keep in touch through Chris because I'd ask what's Ramon up to and he'd do the same, so it was as if we were still in touch. I truly hope that you find some comfort in knowing how well-liked, but actually loved, Ramon was to my family. I will always remember him with a great fondness and respect.
