In memory of Justice V.
I AM writing to ask that you publish my letter so that I may extend my condolences to the family of my former husband, Justice Ramon G. Villagomez.
Although I left Saipan in 1982, I have never forgotten the kindness and love the Lafet family showed to me and my two children, Angelo and Alexander O. Villagomez, and I carry these memories in my heart.
I am sorry that I was not able to come to the novena and funeral in person to express my condolences for your loss. My thoughts and prayers have been with you every day. I was very grateful that both Angelo and Alex were able to come to be with you at this difficult time, and they have told me how you have all welcomed them into the heart of your family. Thank you for your kindness to them. I know how much this would have meant to Ramon.
