Officer Ramirez,

You were well known to the Bexar County Juvenile Probation Department (Southside Division). You would consistently check up on us and warn us of certain areas or particular gangs. Each time, you would offer your assistance on any "home visit" or any situation that may escalate to an extreme. We felt reassured and grateful that we had your support and protection. We were devastated when we heard the news.

May God always keep you close to Him.

Juanita M. Gonzalez, former Juvenile Probation Officer
