Rico and Eric

My mom sent me this article a few days ago.  It’s worth a read…


The Borjas and Ramirez families were two of MANY families impacted by my mom and dad’s ministry.  This article only scratches the surface of the life-change that has resulted from these two families.  Our hearts and prayers go out to both the Borjas and Ramirez families for the ultimate sacrifice.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”  John 15:13.

Rico Borjas and Eric Ramirez

though not related, were brothers at heart

“not easily separated” dad says

their lifelong friendship had an early start

tied together at birth by heritage

more in common than not, they grew as friends

each willing to risk all on limb and ledge

life fully lived, not expected to end

there’s something more that perhaps you don’t know

each placed trust in Christ, for His glory lived

God, family, country not just a motto

in that order, they’d say, our lives we give

for that their memories are now enshrined

on Highway 44, memorialized

Thanks Rico and Eric. We honor your memory and bring fame to the Father on your behalf.

Grace and peace,
