I’m going to deviate (yet again) from T&T traditional bread and butter article to share a happy story with you all.
Longtime T&T readers will remember our coverage of the brutal and utterly senseless murder of Cindy Ramos, a vivacious 58-year old mom and grandma, who was killed in her Tracy, California home in August 2009. You’ll also remember Cindy’s brave and stubborn daughter Christina Barnes, a good friend of T&T, who has grown into a formidable victims’ rights advocate.
Christina is also the founder of Children of Murdered parents and she and her siblings are working to get SB 906 passed, which would require that accused and convicted co-conspirators of violent felonies be jailed and prisoned apart from one another.
Today’s happy story: Christina and her husband Steve, already parents of three daughters (eldest daughter Stefiana serving in Afghanistan, Janessa and Briana) announced they have a baby boy on the way! He was most cooperative during a recent ultrasound, as you can plainly see in the photo. Congratulations Christina!
