Ramon Genao was a very close friend of the family. About 2 years ago he came to this country from the Dominican Republic in hopes to provide a brighter future for his family. This has been a very tragic and an extremely heartfelt loss. Ramon leaves behind his 4 children and a wife that's beside herself and distraught awaiting for an emergency visa in the Dominican Republic. Please god, give them strength. I pray to God that his nephew Hector recovers... Daniel and everyone else that was there... I thank you deaply, so so much.... for you to come out, and without giving it a second thought you helped. Unfortunately there aren't enough people like you in the world. RIP RAMON <3
