Our prayers are with Olga and her family during this difficult time. Though we did not know Olga's father, we can only imagine how great of a man he was having known his incredible daughter Olga.

Dear Ramirez family, There are no words to say to that will minimize the sorrow felt for the passing of your father. Don Mariano was a wonderful and kind man he will be missed. With heart felt sorrow I know he left you all with many years of wonderful memories. He is now resting in peace until the Lord Jesus' soon return. God bless and bring you all peace!
Frank, Mari Almanza & familia
