I grew up in Ramsay. Back in the late 70's it was the best place in the world. In our small town we had a beautiful school, a park that was amazing and friends that we're some of the most amazing in the world.
I don't understand why we have to have Historic City's like Ramsay just fall apart. While growing up there we were safe. Everyone knew everyone and watched out each other.
When I was a little girl I loved the little grocery store. It belonged to Rodies and I remember going there to buy penny candy. Mrs. Rodie called me Catrina, she said it was German for Cathleen. Even though I was young I remember how much I cried when she passed away.
It just doesn't seem right that a City that was once one of the most important copper supplier in the world should be allowed to disappear. I still find it hard to believe that we were not taught more about the history of our own city. It wasn't until just a few years ago that I started doing research on my home town that I found out why it was built so well. In the early 1800's it was the number one copper producer to the entire world. I wish I could reach out to the people still living there and ask them to help preserve this treasure.
I wished my family had never moved me away. My Grandparents lived just down the street and I loved them so much. I had relatives everywhere. We weren't always close because of family squabbles, I wish we were. I was only 14 when we left and it felt like my whole world was coming to an end and in a way it was. I was not prepared for the new life I was thrust into. After growing up so loved and cherished in my small community.
My husband and I have talked about retiring and buying a home right there on the same street if possible that I grew up on. Ramsay may not be what it once was, but it is still very loved. I wish others loved it the way I do. If only it could the beautiful oasis it once was. It used to be that there time seemed to stand still and the world was peaceful.
