"Yesterday was 10 years since our Son Ramiro has gone to be with the Lord!! Life is still not any eazier, I just learned to live with the pain and except the things that I cannot change!! It makes me happy to see his brother and his Family go visit hiis Resting Place!! I am to far away to have been there!! I carry him in my heart always but I still love going there because I know thats where his remines are resting..."

"thank you to all our friends and family that still carry him in your hearts!! Yes it still is very hard, I know that I could have excepted his death at war, but not this way. It shouldn't happen to any Family!! Only God in his time will get Ramiro the justice he deserves. I am not bitter anymore just sad for this world is going to shit!! Only God can save us all with his messangers to save the world!!"

"Had a dream the other night... you and I were sitting having a great conversation. I did most of the talking (like normal) reminded me so much of the conversation we had before you left for boot camp. You are not far from my thoughts old friend... love you gordo!"

"On June 21st you would have been 34 along with your Twin brother Joey!! August 20th will be 10 years that you left us!! I know that your in a much better place and that we will all be together again one day!! I know that your always with me, at times I can feel you touching my arm and I think it's a bug or a hair and I try to brush it off my arm and there's nothing, then I think it must be you giving me comfort and letting me know your right there with me....I love you Son, may you Rest in Peace!!"

"Son I was reading about the Drill Instructor's that were found guilty of the abuse of the recruit's at MCRD when you were there in 06 and 07. I am wondering if they didn't think that you were going to say something about what was going on with some of the recruit's being  mistreated. I know that a lot of the reports by the press said that they didn't know the cause of your death. So if you hung your self why didn't they say your roommate found you hanging,  instead they said that you were on your bunk unresponsive!!  This is a cover up and I want answers!! The log book also was missing, who would be able to take it.. What did they do to it or what changes did they do to it?? Who went into your barracks on the 19th of August. Who's names were on that log book??? There is a lot of corruption and I wish that it wouldn't be like this.. I know now that someone wanted you dead because 2 months before your death when your car was totaled from the back and front of the car someone had to have hit your mustang from behind and throw your mustang into the brick wall. Sgt. Gonzales, Klein, and another Marine were with you. After that you didn't want me to say that Galvan was with you when you were visiting us. You stopped bring Sgt. Gonzales, Klein and some of the other Marines over to the house. I also remember when Galvan was in the hospital after your death, he said he run into a tree. I truly think that someone was trying to scare him to shut up and not say anything or he would get murdered like you were. God please let TRUMP BE OUR NEXT PRESIDENT so that we can get all the corruption out into the open.."

"Son I just sent a message to Dateline about your death. Hopefully they might want to find out what really happened, I know you didn't take your Life but I want answers with all the truth. I'll keep fighting for you until I get the truth. No one has the right in killing anyone because they just don't like you...I promise I will not stop fighting for the truth..."

"I use to have so much faith in our Government till the death of my Son I started noticing a lot of things that were not right!! Now I don't trust them at all!! When I wrote to our Senator  Kevin McCarthey a lot of people told me that he wasn't going to help me find out who killed my Son but I told them that he would!! Well I guess I was wrong!! He never contacted me he would only do it through his Secretary!! You would think that my Son being born in Bakersfield, California and a U.S.Marine he would have done more for him. The Basham Funeral Home Staff along with Mr John Basham were so thoughtful and loving they do care for our Community!! I do believe that (some) of the people in Washington DC are only there to collect a check and run the Country to benefit them!! There are to many Coverup's that should be investigated!! We need only 2 term Senator's and everyone else working in Office just like our Presidents!! What makes them so special? We need change in our Government!!"

"I pray to God that our next President will be Donald Trump because I feel in my heart that he will be a good leader!! I would also like for him as President to investigate all deaths on Military base of our troops better than NCIS is doing now!! I would love to discuss our Son Ramiro's death with him or someone from his campaign!! PLEASE VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT!!!!"

"I have been thinking all day today when you were in Boot Camp Son that your Drill Instructor would bring you Home to Visit on The weekends after you Graduated from Boot Camp!! I thought it was strange but never thought twice about it!! I was also thinking about the weekend that he bought you home and he  along with two other Marines were going out and you were going to be the designated driver and woke up to your Dad yelling at you about what had happened to your car?? Crashed from the front and back of it!! You said that the Sgt. Drill instructor had pulled your car home with his truck and never bothered to wake us up!! You said that you ran into the brick wall to avoid hitting a dog, now I ask myself why was the back of the car crashed too??Why was the SGT. always also talking to that strange woman also?? Did they have a plan in killing you?? THERE is so many questions that I keep asking myself!! I remember you telling me that the Sgt. said to you to tell all your Fellow Marines that he was your Cousin that's why he was always around you!! MY SON WAS MURDERED AND I WANT ANSWER'S!! THEN WHEN THEY SAID HE WAS FOUND ON HIS BED DEAD THEN THEY SAID HANGING!! WHAT A LIE WHY WOULD YOU KEEP CHANGING YOUR STORY!! THERE WAS A BIG COVER UP!!"

"Hoping that our next President will be one that will stand up for America and what it stands for!! We need a President that will not be afraid to do what is right for our Country!! We need to elect our Congress and make sure they are really going to do what they are elected to do!! We the People need the truth and not what they think we want to hear!! I have lost my faith in our Government since our Son's Death and how it was being covered up!! If it was one of their Children they would most likely be raising hell like I have been!! I want our President to give the raises where they need to be given to our Troops, Police Dept, Fire Dept and all the People that are out there risking their Life's to keep America Safe!! And not just sitting and collecting a check from the Tax Payers money!! I see a lot of raises where there shouldn't be given!! There is a lot of deaths in the Military that are called Suicide and not investigated the way it should be!!"

"Today Visiting our Son Ramiro's Resting Place with Fresh White Roses!! I use to be this strong Woman that couldn't be broken now I am so sensitive and my feelings get hurt so easy. Since my Son's death I can't be strong anymore!! I try to hide my feelings but I just can't!! If anything can break you it's losing a Child in Death!!"

"Son it don't matter to your Dad and I, we will visit you at night just to make sure you have Flowers!! Your Dad just got out of Work and we headed to Visit you at your Resting Place!! All the years that you were here with us we made sure you had everything you needed!! Now all we can do is give you Flowers, and carry you in our Hearts Forever!! We love you Son and we will never forget you!! Only Parents that have lost a Child can understand!! We Love you Son!!"

"Son yesterday I was sad and mad at the same time because of what was done to you and that if I would not have fought for you to get Justice your Death would have just been another Suicide like many others. I know you to well and I know you would never have done this to your self!! The Marines responsible for your death didn't know how close of a Family we are and that I would never let them get away with it!! I know that I am not the only Mother going through this and that there is lots of Families Grieving for their loved ones!!"

"God I hope that you send us a President that will bring our Country together!! That you won't allow for injustice to our American People and that no matter how bad the situation is tell us all the truth. We vote for you and then we the American People get let down!! We stand by our Military and for what it stands for!! Investigate every death in our Military as if it was your own Son, Daughter or Grandchild!! Treat People the way you would want your Family to be treated!!"

"Thinking about my Son Ramiro like always and what a great loss to our Family he is!! There is not one day that I don't think about him!! I'm glad he lived a life of Joy and he did all the things he wanted to do!! I'm happy that we gave him whatever he wanted and were always there for him and still are!! No one needs to be done injustice the way he was!! He gave his all to the Marine Corp. while training in Boot Camp he never complained!! He trained hard and gave his all in whatever he set his mind too!! You could always count on him and he was there for you!! He would stand up to anyone that was being mistreated he was a true Friend,Son, Brother, Uncle! No and he wasn't a bully but for some reason the bullies didn't like him!! He Shined where ever he went and stood out because of the kind of person he was!! The Sad part is that he didn't get to finish all of his accomplishments!! Tomorrow will be 8 years since you left us!! We miss you so much!!"

"The Coroner that did my Son's Autopsy told me that he was told that my Son just got back from Iraq!! Doesn't that sound strange!! He was training so that he could go! He wanted to go!! I told the Coroner that they gave him the wrong information!! They wanted him to think he killed his self!! Which it is not true!!"

"This morning and all day I have been thinking about our Son Ramiro!! About the day he came into my room and told me he was enlisting in the Marine Corp. I asked him if he was sure that's what he wanted to do!! He said yes Mom I want to do it, don't worry because I can handle it. You know how you had rules for us and we were able to follow them. I know that I can move up in rank and be someone in there. It just makes me so sad that his life was taken and they didn't give him the chance of who he was going to become in the Marine Corp. It hurts me so much because he was cheated from his life and who he was going to become!! Today I have been extra sad just thinking about what was done!! Nothing has ever been the same since then!!"

There is not one day that your Dad and I don't think of you and remember all the fond memories we have of you!! We look forward to the day we will all be together again!! There are times I feel so sad and I'll walk into your room and feel the presence of you and find the comfort to keep moving forward. knowing that one day we will all be together again!! And that your in a place where no one can ever hurt you again!! I know you only feel joy and happiness and that there is no better place than where you are now!!

"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death will not exist any more—or mourning, or crying, or pain, for the former things have ceased to exist.” (Revelation 21:4)

Bible Verse of the Day

Tomorrow will be 7 years that our Son Ramiro left us and to us it's like it just happened. I really believe that his life was taken from him 7 years ago today when another Marine posted on his own MySpace RIP BRO at 5:02 p.m. on the 19th when my Son's body wasn't found until the early morning hours of the 20th..Now how would he have known he was dead???? We have the copy of the page saying RIP BRO on the 19th at 5:02 p.m.
It doesn't get better you only learn to live with the pain!! People say in time no that is not true you only learn to live with your empty heart!! I know he is in a better place and that one day we shall be together again!! That is what keeps me going knowing that one day we will be together again!!"

"Son your birthday was a few days ago I thought with time things would get better!! It's been really hard these pass few years!!

August 20 th will be 7 years when the door bell rang and I was give the saddest news that  you were gone!! My whole life crumbled before me!!"
