In Honor and Memory of Cindy Ramos
From Son Freddie written 08/08/09:

Mom, you are missed and loved so much. I never thought that this could ever happen to you and just know my heart and
soul are angel. You took in those who needed help, even when you didn't have the means to do it. You are a wonderful
woman. I'm so glad that my last words to you were "I love you." We always said I love you as our last words to each other.
And I know our love for each other was as real as could be. You had your own way of expressing your love. Sometimes it
was tough love, but it was all good. You have raised a great family and you done very good. It's crazy when I think about it,
but how we never had much, we always had each other. Love got us through everything that we have ever been through.
I'm glad of my upbringing. You have really taught me so much about love...How to love and how to be a great person.How
to help people. You have always been there for me during my rough and tough times. And you never turned your back on
me. I am so close to you. And because you're gone from me in person, your soul and love lives in my heart forever. I've had
so many great times and memories with you and they will never leave me. Even my butt woopin's will stay with me. I wish
right now you could grab your ping pong paddle and give me one right now. lol. You are such a great person and at times I
didnt know why you did things that you did, but in the end, you're whole story has been put together like a beautiful puzzle.
You are my life. And I will never let go of you. You will stay with me forever and ever!!! I love you mom so much and
always keep me love with you as I know you have your whole life. Tell everybody up in Heaven that I send my love. And
embrace Grandma and Grandpa. You're finally home mom, you're finally home.

And for everybody who came out last night, I must say that on behalf of me and my entire family, we truly thank you. I
know for me, the support from family, friends and total strangers has helped me so much in dealing with all of this. It's been
hard on all of us, but all of the support and prayers from everybody is really getting me by. I thank you sincerely.

From Cindy's grand-daughter Angie written 08-07-09

I am the grandaughter of Cindy who i know as grandmama! Let me say one thing. I am having my first son at a young age
and boy was grandmama the most excited1. i told her before my own mother. She was my best friend and the 1person i
could tell anything2. Why some1 can take her from our family like this i will never no. She was the most unique grandma
ever. She never failed to make me laugh so hard i could barely breathe. She went out of her way to help many many people
who most would turn away, opening her arms and home to them. She would never turn any1 away. Thats just the love she
had; to help others.  Our family is so lost right now without her. Just passing by the old trailer home, which has been in the
family since my great grandmother who passed away at 98yrs n then left it to my grandmama, where she was murdered.
Seeing all the officers, lights, crime scene investigators, news and more... alone hurt so bad i can not explain. Remembering
every Thanksgiving how our huge family squeezes into that small trailer just to get grandmas cooking.  No1 deserves to die
like she did, and to imagine all the pain she went through before it happened. no1!

Dear grandmamasgirl......how lucky you are to have such a loving relationship with your beloved grandmama. Your loving
thoughts are expressed so very well. You make me envious to have such love in your life. My children, grandchildren, and I
had this same kind of relationship with my mother....until she left us in 2001. We too, would give anything to enjoy her
cooking, and to experience her love again. Just know that time eases the pain, and soon it will be only the good memories that
remain........and of course, the love. Allow those memories to comfort you now. Congratulations, and take good care of that
new baby boy on the way. Tell him about the love of his grandmama, and let her be your example. Please accept my deepest
condolences in your untimely loss.

From Cindy's baby sister Deb

What a SHAME you cant even be safe in your own home anymore. We are devastated about our Loved One, Cindy Ramos.
Such a Caring person and would give the shirt off her back for anyone. Its beyond belief or understanding to lose a Loved
One this way. Our Hearts go out to our Nieces, Nephews, and all the Grandchildren, that she Loved with all her heart. With
All Our Love,
Aunt Debbie, Aunt Kathi, and Grandma.

From Cindy's birth mother

Dear Cindy,
Because of difficult circumstances I didnt have the joy of raising you, but from the day you were born I knew you would
have everything in life you needed or wanted with Aunt Ann and Uncle Lloyd (who could have children) I always have
carried a void in my heart because I missed your growing years. Although kept contact throughout the years it never changed
my Love For You.
When you were told that I was your Mother you didnt stop until you made complete contact with me and your siblings. You
have always been my child and I willforever Love and Cherish the times we got to spend together. You are a Loving
Daughter who always called me and kept me updated on all the kids and family. We spoke the day before you were taken and
you were so excited about life and your new great grandbaby that is due. I want my Grandchildren to know that my Love
and Thoughts are with them. Hope to see you all soon. Love Mom & Grandma

From Cindy's oldest son Daniel written 08/08/09:

Dear Mom,
I'm not sure where to begin cause the tears continue to cloud my vision. I want you know that as your oldest, I had the
privilage to call you my Mother the longest. I(we) will never forget the greatest intangible of all that you left behind, "To be
togather as one". Since we all knew the great joy you took in us and how proud you were of us all, YOUR FAMILY! MOM,
know that your legacy will be long, proud and vigilant to continue each and every mission your began or were in the midst of
before your were taken from us.
You are in our eternal home now with grandma and grandpa, so sleep now my Mother, my heart and soul as we, Your family
are left here to continue your fight and see it all through fruition. Until we can all be togather again. I will never forget!

From Cindy's oldest Grandson Orlando written 08/08/09:

WOW, I AM AT A LOSS FOR WORDS AT THE MOMENT. I AM ORLANDO, CINDY'S OLDEST GRANDCHILD.
WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT MY GRANDMOTHER? SHE HAD A SENSE OF HUMOR LIKE NO OTHER, A SMILE
THAT COULD BRING SUNLIGHT TO EVEN THE DARKEST OF DAYS, AND A CARING PERSONALITY THAT MOST
WOULD CALL AMAZING. GRANDMA WAS KNOWN FOR HER "TELL IT LIKE IT IS" QUALITY. SHE HAS THE
MOST AMAZING FAMILY, WE ARE KNOWN FOR OUR MULTI-RACE, MULTI-CULTURE FAMILY. THIS MADE
GRANDMA VERY PROUD. OUR GET-TOGETHERS BROUGHT MANY DIFFERENT FOODS AND DRINKS TO THE
TABLE. THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT CAN BE SPOKEN TO EVEN BEGIN TO EXPLAIN WHY. SHE DID NOT
DESERVE WHAT HAPPEN. I ONLY HOPE THAT THE PAIN DIDNT LAST LONG FOR HER. GRANDMA PLEASE
KNOW THAT YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN AND WILL FOREVER BE IN OUR HEARTS. REST IN PEACE
GRANDMA..

From Cindy's niece Roshan away for school in Chile, written 08/08/09:

I read this quote a couple days ago . . .
'That I may cross over 'the bridge of judgment' with a smile.' The next day, yesterday, God tested this. I found out my
Auntie Cindy was robbed from our family for no reason at all. She spent her last moments painfully, in contrast to all the
moments of her years before she spent giving to other people. She was taken from her kids, her grandkids, her great
grandson on the way, her nieces and nephews...all of us. She was robbed from our family and from the coming years of her
life. I like to say everything happens for a reason, but this . . . This was senseless. Cruel and Evil. This bridge of judgment I
haven't crossed, because some things just aren't forgivable. I know forgiveness is supposed to reach every corner... but I
haven't gotten there. I wish I could be with my family right now. They are all in my hearts. Always and everyday. I'm not
even in the country to be there for the people I love or to say goodbye to my Auntie... None of us should have to. I can't get
my head around this. Are some people born with no souls, no conscience, no sense of humanity? How do you bring pain
upon someone one....like that?!?!?! In that way???!!!! How can you bring bring this upon our family?! For what??? For
what????
Auntie Cindy, I love you. Your life will always be with us as ours are always with you. You have a smile I will never forget.
And a spirit and personality so alive, they will reach our family even if you aren't here in the physical. You will forever be
here through all of the people you touched, and the beautiful family you created.

From Cindy's God-Daughter Charlene Young:

Cindy was my godmother, my mother's oldest and best friend. They've known each other since they were both pregnant at
16 with me and my oldest godbrother Danny. She always had a contagious laugh, so full of life, and always willing to help
anyone in need. I'm still numb with the thought I will never hear that voice again, walking down memory lane with all of us
kids~ oh the stories, all of us kids in tow~ her and my mom have had many adventures. I know she's lookin over all of us
with spread wings, protecting all of us~ her children, grandchildren, many friends, and my mom, me and my sister. I will
miss her terribly and still can't grasp the nature of how she was tragically taken by all of us. To know her~ you were truly
lucky. I miss you Cindy, and mom will always remember the last conversation you two had, just an hour before her tragic
death~ talkin bout how much she loved all of us and how excited she was about Angie's baby~ looking forward to her 59th
bday on the 22nd~ We will celebrate your life everyday and never, ever forget how much you meant to all of us. Thank you
for being my moms best friend, and always being there for us. I LOVE YOU~ she's listening to her oldies in Heaven, with
Grandma Ann and Granpa Lloyd, who she missed terribly. RIP Cindy. Justice will be served in your honor

Hard to begin. Being a member of Auntie Cindy's family, I can see how many people are affected by this. She was a mother.
A grandmama. Soon to be a great-grandmama. I just don't understand. I haven't even seen her that often these past years.
But I know 5 minutes with her showed me everything. She was amazing. Irreplaceable. I'm just so happy I have a family that
comes together and supports each other after a thing like this. I hope parents teach their kids the best they can. Any kid with
a family as loving as mine wouldn't think of harming anyone. I guess I'm just lucky. Auntie Cindy, we love you.

Christina Barnes, Cindy's oldest daughter:

Hi Mama...Today was kinda rough. I think because it was the first day that I didn't have anything to do but think...and I
thought of all the times that I have missed out on enjoying your company and just hangin out with you. I know you were
so... proud to lose all that weight and you literally turned into a different person. I regret that I never really got the chance to
go clothes shopping...or better yet, SHOE SHOPPING!! I remember you telling me on the phone about all the cute clothes
you have. I know you were watching too when Kim and I had to go to your house for her to get something to wear to
court...She just thought it was the funniest thing that she had free reign in your closet without being yelled at that "NO
KIMBERLY...YOU CAN'T WEAR THAT ONE"!!! We have to tease you like we always did, but we know that you would be
happy...better yet PROUD for her to wear your clothes...I'd wear 'em too if I could fit 'em Mom. I bet you'd love to hear me
say that one..lol Miss you Mama

Fred LIvai, Cindy's Son:

much. i grab my phone and wanna call you all the time. i know you know as you're looking down on me..probably just

even strangers. mom, i'm so proud to know that you were my mom all of my life. and things will never change. you will

you have so much love surrounding your work here on earth. and that will never change. i miss talking to you..and just
irritating you. i miss it so much. and i miss  

Christina Barnes, Cindys oldest daughter:

Hi Mama...Missing you so much. I have said a couple of times today and I will say it again that I can see things so clearly
now. I can see YOU so much more clearly than I ever did...who you were...your spirit...I understand you. I just wish I
coul...d have understood when you were with us so that I could have appreciated life with you. I feel like I missed out on so
much, but I want you to know that I have within me the messages that you instilled. You did such a great job with all of us.
YOU did! Mom you are my hero! All my love to you....Always. Chrissy

Kimberly Elisan McKinney, Cindy's youngest daughter:

PLEASE VISIT www.inmemoryofcindyramos.com and share in the memories of our Beloved mother in this website we
have created in her memory...in her honor. To Know her was to Know the True meaning of unconditional Love! We Love
you Mama!

Kimberly Elisan McKinney, Cindy's youngest daughter:

Mama,Forever in our hearts is where you shall always remain. Your spirit will live on through all of us forever. May you Rest
In Paradise Mother, for we know you are home...You are forever at Peace. Hope your wings aren't too big for you after
l...osing so much weight. You'll grow into them though, cuz we know you are having one heck of a feast up there. See you
when we get there Mama! And Thank You so much for everything. You should be proud. You did a wonderful job. Your
work here is done now, and you are eternally home. Rest In Peace Mama! Rest In Paradise! We Love You

Kimberly Elisan McKinney, Cindy's youngest daughter:

Well Mama, It has taken me a few days to even be able to write on your  wall. I guess I just didn't want to accept that you
are gone. This is just so hard Mama. Tears are pouring down my cheeks as I am typing. I just wanted to say that I Love You
SOOOOOO Much Mama and I will carry that within me until we meet again. You truly were my very best friend, and I am
just so lost right now. Trying to make sense of something we will just probably never be able to make sense of. But as we
struggle through this, I can't help but to sit back and look at the wonderful family you have created and the legacy of love
you have left behind. We are truly so very fortunate to have you as our mother, and I just wanted to say, Thank You Mama,
and I Love You. I only wish I could see your smile just one last time. I miss you so much.

.Christina Barnes Hi Mama, I am so tired. I am drained of everything inside me...just so tired. Had a good conversation with
SkyHawk about making sure you are at peace. He seemed to think you are. I know that is what I would like to believe but I
just don't k...now that is what my heart tells.me. I am looking for answers to so many questions and am finding answers to
other questions I never knew I had. Arrangements to be finalized tomorrow. I hope you know that I am doing everything i
can to make sure things are done right, as you would have wanted. So hard...so many decisions. I just want to know that i
am doing the right thing. Love you Momma....xoxoxoxo

Christina Barnes

Hi Mama. Had a rough day today but I feel your strength in me and am sharing that with others as you would want me too. I
know you would be so proud of us. Court was very hard on all of us, but you shine thru like the brightest rays of the sun
and... project yourself to everyone in that room! In recognition of your eastern band cherokee tanisi tribe heritage, all of us
siblings blew out the candle that had been burinig for the last four days, and watched your spirit free itself with the smoke on
it's new journey to the stars. Grandma Nadine and Aunt Debbie came from Vegas for the arraignment, and others will be here
as soon as we have something set up..I guess that is tomorrows agenda. One day at a time Mama. Better yet, one minute at a
time. Well, gonna go for now. Love you so much Mama. Rest in peace knowing you will forever live thru your children. You
did so well with us. xoxoxoxo

Sandy Trujillo Schmidt , Cindy's friend

Dearest Cindy...even though we haven't spoken words to each other in many, many years, your excitement and your warm
hello when you "found" me after so many years will hold a special place in my heart always. May you rest in peace my
...friend and God bless you. You will be missed by so many...

Wendy Lopez, Cindy's friend

Hi cindy, I still can't believe you were taken from us in this sensless act. I wake up and think ok cindy should be calling
anytime now, but you don't . I miss you very much. I went to the first candlelite vigil. You would have been so ...very proud
of your KIDS they were strong and showed so so much Class and Respect for You their mother and all your friends. "Talk
to you later" love you ,miss you wendy

Christina Barnes

Hi Mama. We had the last vigil tonight, a couple reporters. I just want the world to know THE BEAUTY OF YOU and see
justice be served. Missing you so much, God it hurts. Peace be with you and all of us..

Christina Barnes

Mom it hurts so bad. ..on so many levels. I just don't know how to get thru it all. i should have been there for you. i am just
so sorry.


Christina Barnes

Hi Mama. A few months ago, we were watching the horrific murder of Sandra Cantu. I never would have thought, not in a
million years that I would be in a tearful embrace with Sandra's grandmother as she told me "I know what you are going
...through." Mom, please be at peace. I promise you that we will do everthing possible to make this right, and honor your
memory. I love you so much.

Stefiana Barnes, Cindy's granddaughter

HI GRANDMA...IT IS SO HARD TO BELIEVE THAT I WILL NOT SEE YOU AGIAN.. I MISS YOU SO MUCH. I HAVE
NOT TOLD YOU AS MANY TIMES AS I SHOULD HAVE THAT I LOVE YOU AND THINK YOU ARE AWESOME..I
FEEL SO AWEFUL BECAUSE I HAVE NOT TALKED TO YOU OR SEEN YOU IN A... WHILE. I HOPE THAT YOU
KNOW YOU WERE ALWAYS IN MY HEART AND THE SMALLEST THINGS REMINDED ME OF YOU LIKE THE
KATT WILLIAMS VIDEO IN OUR LIVING ROOM.. I WALKED PASSED IT THE OTHER DAY AND REMEMBERED
HOW YOU WOULD ALWAYS BEG MOM TO WATCH IT WITH YOU... GOOD TIMES..I LOVE YOU SO SO SO MUCH
AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART

Christina Barnes

Mom I just cannot believe that you are gone....I have taken for granted that you were always there, and I truly regret each
missed opportunity just to sit and talk with you. If I could do things over...what I wouldn't give just to see you smile. I miss
you so much. xoxoxoxo

Christina Barnes

I am so sorry Mama. I am just so sorry.

Charlene Young, Cindy's Goddaughter

sweetheart

Christina Barnes

Mommy, I am so sad that you had to suffer the way you did. I pray that you are at peace and hope that your new wings are
not too big for you. Forever you will be missed.

From Cindy's baby sister Deb:

Iam Cindy's baby sister Debbie,
Wow this is the hardest and most heart wrenching, soul felt, tragedy Ive ever dealt with. I will miss coming to visit you and
all the kids, I sure wish I would have came to visit, you were on me so hard to come and now I will never get to see you
again for you were taken from us and THIS IS ALL SO WRONG..WHY,WHY,WHY. I will miss your laughter the most and
your tell it like it is attitude. That of course you took after me. I use to tell you all the time I wanted to be just like you when I
grow up. (you were more brave than me I only had 1 child you had 6). Well the pain that we all feel is so deep and heartfelt
because you were a Heartfelt Person that is Loved and will be forever Missed by SO MANY....Sis I Love You, Debbie
RIP-I will see You and Brother Billy when I get there.

From Cindy's Friend Barbara, written 08/08/09:

I've known Cindy since I was 15 years old, I was married to her brother Billy for more than 20 yrs who passed before her.
I'm sure knowning Cindy that she fought these jerks with all her might, I feel for All of her family and friends because Cindy
did have a great laugh and I know I always enjoyed talking to her. She's with her brother now and they always seemed to be
close. Rest in Peace Cindy and just know that you are greatly loved and will be missed by many. Love, Barb

« itsnotright wrote on Wednesday, Aug 12 at 04:55 AM »

Anyone who knew Cindy knew that her love was the true definition of unconditional. This great lady is going to missed by so
many people. It's hard to imagine how any of us will ever be able to accept what has happened, but if we hold on real hard to
our memories such as those of Thanksgiving meals at Cindy's....rest assured, you will have something to laugh about!

May our dear Cindy rest in eternal peace and may the family somehow find the strength to get through this. Trust in God as
the vengence truly is His and not ours. Justice will be served.
