Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
















 This website was created in the memory of our loved one, KATHERINE RAMIREZ who was born in United States on April 15, 1988 and passed away on July 23, 2005 at the age of 17. We will remember her forever.

Katherine was one of the most amazing people I knew.   Let's see like most of you know she was born on April 15th 1988 at Whittier hospital.  She weighed in at 6lbs. 1/2 ounce and 19 inches long,  She was born at 1:24 p.m. it was a Friday.  It was kind of a difficult birth for me, the Dr. had to take her by C-section because she was breeched they tried to correct that during the pregnancy but could not and they later found out that my womb was heart shaped.    So she even before she came into this world she was surrounded by love.    She was kind of a shy person until you got to know her, then watch out.  She would then have you in the palm of her hand.  Katherine was one of the most  loving and cariing  person anyone would want to be around.  No matter what you wore (well sometimes), looked like, where you were from, if you had money or did not have any money, she treated everyone the same.  I LOVE HER and MISS HER more and more each day.  

























































Well let's see I was sitting here thinking about the 23rd of this month.    And i just can not seem to think about how much i miss her and love you.  I have never had to go this long without her smile on that pretty face of the cute smirk of hers, and of course the "hey mom, got any money for me".    I also thought that i never really mentioned more of her family, like her uncles and aunts.  so let's see here I go,  Katherine had  alot of uncles on my side she had  my brothers -Uncle Dennis, Uncle Robert, Uncle Leroy, Uncle Mike, Uncle Anthony and Unlce Nick.  and then on her dad 's side there was Tio Manny, Tio Jose, Tio Miguel,  and Tio Jesus.  and the only Aunts on my side were my brothers wives, (i am the only girl) so here we go Aunt Laura, Aunt Holly, Aunt Cindy, Aunt Michelle, Aunt Wendy,   and Aunt  Brenda.     On her fathers side the aunts were Tia Rosa, Tia Martina, Tia Theresa, Tia Lupe, and Tia Veronica.     ok everyone keeping up?  Katherine's cousin on my side , Marie, Jessica, Christina, Tiffany, A.J., Amanda, Alicia, Zackary, Nicholas Jr. and Lucas and 4 2nd cousins, Michael, Danielle, Selena and  Mia.    As for her dad's side well i know there was about 25 cousins  or so.   Sorry i can't name them all.  I do know one thing Katherine blessed all our lives in one way or another.  i bet any one reading this could just picture her right now and of course with a smille on her face with her arms out to hug you.  She really loved having a big family, she always had something nice to say about them all.  I miss her more than words or tears could ever show or tell, i guess you can say there is and will be forever a part of my heart is gone.   And please everyone Katherine would want everyone to give one another a hug, so go tell someone you  love them and give them a big hug.  Katherine will be right there on your shoulder.  
                                 love,
                                   ( mom)

Katherine, I feel like this on a daily basis.  I wish I could just hold you in my arms forever.  
mom










Let the Heavens be sweeter
Now that you are there.
Let yourself breathe deeper
For fresh and holy is the air.
Let the angels sing louder
Now that you are there to hear.
Let the wind blow a little more
To dry all of my tears.
Let the clouds be fluffier
So that you can finally rest.
Let yourself find in your heart
That you have always been blessed.
Let yourself look down on me
Every once in a while.
And find yourself still living
Through my very smile.
Let the Heavens be sweeter
Now that you are there,
But please don't forget to look down
And listen to my prayer.





















GRANNY BOUGHT AN ANGEL JUST LIKE THIS WHEN KATHERINE WAS BORN. IT IS UP ON THE SHELF IN KAT'S ROOM.






















KATHERINE, EASTER IS IN A FEW DAYS AND THAT MEANS ANOTHER HOLIDAY WITHOUT YOU HERE.  HOLIDAYS SEEM TO BE THE HARDEST TO DEAL WITH.  I GUESS BECASE I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVED THEM AND LOVED  TO SEE ALL YOUR UNCLES, AUNTS, AND COUSINS.  I SURE HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A HAPPY EASTER IN HEAVEN.  BE SURE TO COLOR THE EGGS A BRIGHT GREEN.  
LOVE YOU ALWAYS,
MOM










KATHERINE, I CAN NOT BELIEVE IT IS GOING TO BE THE 2ND CHRISTMAS WITHOUT  YOU.   THE OTHER DAY I WENT SHOPPING AND WITHOUT EVEN THINKING THE OTHER DAY I WENT INTO BODY GRAPHICS AND BOUGHT YOU THE CUTEST BELLY RING AND WALKED OUTSIDE AND GOT INTO MY CAR AN D THEN REALIZED YOU WERE NOT HERE FOR ME TO GIVE THIS TO YOU.  I MISS YOU SO MUCH MORE EVERYDAY.  MERRY CHRISTMAS MY ANGEL.
                           LOVE MOM













MERRY X-MAS KATHERINE.   JULIE AND I WENT SHOPPING THE OTHER NIGHT AND ON OUR WAY THERE I WAS THINKING WHAT I STILL HAD TO GET YOU.  AND THEN THE TEARS STARTED.  I MISS YOU HONEY.







KATHERINE LOVED "NEMO"














THIS IS KATHERINE'S PAPA.  HE PASSED AWAY AND JOINED KATHERINE ON MAY 20,  2007. 










MAY NOT BE OBVIOUS TO YOU..... 

IT MAY NOT BE OBVIOUS TO YOU,
I PARTICIPATE IN FAMILY ACTIVITIES
I ATTEND FAMILY GATHERINGS
I HELP PLAN HOLIDAYS
YOU TELL ME YOU'RE GLAD TO SEE THAT I DON'T CRY ANYMORE
BUT I DO CRY!
WHEN EVERYONE IS GONE- WHEN IT IS SAFE
THE TEARS FALL
I CRY IN PRIVACY SO MY FAMILY WON'T WORRY
I CRY UNTIL I AM EXHAUSTED AND FALL ASLEEP


YOU TELL ME YOU ADMIRE MY STRENGTH & POSITIVE ATTITUDE
BUT I AM NOT STRONG
I FEEL I HAVE LOST CONTROL & PANIC WHEN I THINK ABOUT
TOMORROW...NEXT WEEK...NEXT YEAR...


I GO ABOUT MY DAILY ROUTINE
I COMPLETE ALL MY TASKS
I DRINK MY SPRITE AND SMILE
YOU TELL ME YOU'RE GLAD TO SEE I'M GETTING OVER THE DEATH OF MY DAUGHTER
BUT I'M NOT "OVER IT"
IF I EVER GET OVER IT, I WILL BE THE SAME AS BEFORE MY LOVED ONE DIED....
I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!


AT TIMES I THINK I AM BEGINNING TO HEAL
BUT THE PAIN OF LOSING A CHILD I LOVED SO MUCH HAS LEFT A PERMANENT SCAR ON MY HEART.
I VISIT MY NEIGHBORS
YOU TELL ME YOU'RE GLAD TO SEE I'M HOLDING UP SO WELL
BUT I AM NOT HOLDING UP WELL
SOMETIMES I WANT TO LOCK THE DOOR AND HIDE FROM THE WORLD


I SPEND MY TIME WITH MY FRIENDS
I APPEAR CALM AND COLLECTED
I SMILE WHEN APPROPRIATE
YOU TELL ME IT'S GOOD TO SEE ME BACK TO MY "OLD SELF"
BUT I WILL NEVER BE BACK TO ME"OLD SELF"
DEATH & GRIEF HAVE TOUCHED MY LIFE

AND I AM FOREVER CHANGED!!!!!!


ANNA (MOM)
































If I had only known
It was the last walk in the rain
I'd keep you out for hours in the storm
I would hold your hand
Like a life line to my heart
Underneath the thunder  would be warm
If I had only known
It was our last walk in the rain


If I had only known 
Id never hear your voice again
Id memorize each thing you ever said
I could think of them once more
Keep your words alive inside my head
If I had only known
Id never hear your voice again


You were the treasure in my hand 
You were the one who always stood beside me
So unaware I foolishly believed
That you would always be there
But then there came a day
And I turned my head and you slipped away


If I had only known
It was my last night by your side
Id pray a miracle would stop the dawn
And when youd smile at me
I would look into your eyes
And make sure you know my love 
For you goes on and on
If I had only known
If I had only known
The love I would've shown
If I had only known.....

















CHRISTMAS WILL NOT BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU.
