Ramona and Thom loved to travel especially anywhere warm and welcomed family and friends to join them, sometimes as many as 40 would meet up on the beaches of Hawaii, Dominican Republic, Bahamas or their favorite place, Jamaica. On several trips Ramona and Thom brought school supplies to a small mountain school in Jamaica and when they visited, they where greeted by the children with music, songs, and big smiles.
Ramona will be lovingly remembered by her soulmate, Thom; fur children, Oliver and Mikey; brothers, Dr Richard (Jeff) Betts, Stephan Betts, Aaron (Lindsey) Betts; nieces and nephews, Trevor, Abbigail, Tate, Chandler, Kyle, Maddie, Braxton and Kason; and many great nieces and nephews.
