Ramona is graciously allowing us to share her story in our summer appeal letter, which went out last week. She is a grandmother raising her four granddaughters, after her son was shot in a case of mistaken identity, and her daughter died in a surgery.
When her car broke down, she reached out to the Vincentians at Queen of All Saints in South County. They helped her pay for a used Kia that helps her keep the girls’ lives as normal as they can be, even though there is nothing normal about what happened to the young girls and the tremendous commitment their grandmother is making to them.
After the photo shoot, we started to walk away and Ramona stopped us. She said every time she and the Vincentians saw each other, they prayed together. And she said this photo shoot should be no different.
