I first met Ramona at East Jr.  She and I shared the blessing/curse of very curly hair - hers radiant red.  I vividly recall a lunchtime conversation pondering why we didn't pronounce spaghetti "spaghetta," since we called bologna "baloney."  Amazing details the mind retains!  In those memories, we live on.

Ramona and I used to often walk home from Mark Twain Elementary School together. She and I were in the same class there. We discussed the activities of the day and how we felt about them. She and I didn't share as many classes once we got to jr and sr high school, but we always considered each other good friends. She had a wicked sense of humor and wit! We even shared an unforgettable experience/milestone-- going to see "A Hard Days Night" together when it came to the Grand Theater. The place was absolutely packed; and she and I screamed our way through the entire movie!! A wonderful memory I will always cherish!!!!
