My condolences to Ramon's family. Sorry so late but I had moved out of the area and am just finding out. Back in the 80s I spent a lot of time with Ramon and he was an awesome person. Yes he was very generous and he loved to laugh. We would drink beer and laugh and laugh. Unfortunately, I haven't seen him since the 80s but I think of him often, fondly. He was a breathe of fresh air to be around. He made me laugh out loud. My world is a better place because of knowing him. I will certainly miss him. Rest in Peace Ramon Cavrone! (my nic for him) Walk with Jesus. Until we meet again...farewell. Chris Moon
