Ramone Update

I can’t tell you how touching it is that even though I don’t know many of you in person that when I say I’m concerned for my sweet neighbor Ramone your response is to comment with well wishes and prayers.

Thank you.

We went to the Hospital on Saturday to visit with Ramone and Virginia. Ramone is weak and tired. The doctors were going to do some more tests today.

When Ramone wasn’t dozing off he would engage in our conversation. I told him the cows missed him and to get home soon.

Virginia told us some great stories. When they lived in town they had a neighbor that didn’t have indoor plumbing and their outhouse was stinking something fierce. After asking the neighbor several times to take care of the problem, Virginia had some strong words with her in which the neighbor challenged Virginia that it was her property and Virginia couldn’t make her clean it up if she didn’t want to. Well, that was enough for Virginia to call the Health Department.

Thirty days later the neighbor had been forced to move out and Ramone bought the property for a song. Because, as Virginia said, “Nobody wanted to live in that sh*! hole”. They tore down the house and it’s still an empty lot today.

And that my friends is how Ramone and Virginia are doing. I’ll keep you updated as I know.
