Ed's Tenth Anniversary

Dear Family and Friends,

Ten Years ago, I lost the LOVE OF MY LIFE, 
My husband, Col. Edwin P. Ramsey, 26th Cavalry PS.
But he is never Far Away from ME,
He Lives in My Heart and Mind, all The Time.

So I chose this Poem to Remember Him:

I Heard Your Voice in the Wind Today

I heard your voice in the wind today
and I turned to see your face;
The warmth of the wind caressed me
as I stood silently in place.

I felt your touch in the sun today
as its warmth filled the sky;
I closed my eyes for your embrace
and my spirit soared high.

I saw your eyes in the window pane
as I watched the falling rain;
It seemed as each raindrop fell
it quietly said your name.

I held you close in my heart today
it made me feel complete;
You may have died...but you are not gone
you will always be a part of me.

As long as the sun shines
the wind blows...
the rain falls...
You will live on inside of me forever
for that is all my heart knows.

I also want to quote these lines from Adm Lee and Roz Levenson.  "There is a saying
that as you travel through life, you make many acquaintances but few friends.  Ed WAS
A TRUE FRIEND and We will Cherish his Friendship Forever." 

I also want to quote Ed from the documentary: "NEVER SURRENDER: THE ED RAMSEY
STORY" By Vanilla Fire Productions which Premiered on Nov 13, 2016 at the Simon
Wiesenthal Center, Museum of Tolerance.  In a letter to his mother, Nelle and his
sister, Nadine; Ed wrote" It is either the war ends, or I die fighting, Because I WILL

I also want to Remember "SHAKE THE HAND OF A NATIONAL HERO" Event at the BH
Peninsula Hotel by the PenFed Foundation on Nov, 27, 2012. Here are some photos
below with BG Dave and Ellyn Snowden, Chief of Police of BH and Military Officers of
all branches of the Armed Forces and Civic Leaders. It was the last military event he
attended, as he passed away in 2013.

Thanks for your love and prayers,

Here are two photos from The Rose Parade with Frank Quiambao representing the CA Military detachment, State Guard and the 26th Cavalry Mounted Unit.

Also, a photo of Joe and Goody Calugas with me at the PSHS reunion in 2016 in Las Vegas.  They were dear long time friends of Ed and I.  Goody passed away last December 28, 2022.
