Freddie Wise

Aunt Ramona was like a second mother to me with many special memories and I loved her dearly. I'm so sad to see her leave but so happy that I was able to be with her recently and that she is in a better place.
My Sympathy and Love goes out to Stacey, Greg, Micky and family!
Aunt Ramona you will never be forgotten. You made a difference in my life and I thank you for being there for me. Please give all of our loved ones in Heaven a hug from me especially Mom and Brad.
All my Love
