Before it became national news JonBenet’s death hit much closer to home. Pam Griffin was a good friend of the Ramsey family. She designed and created custom pageant outfits while her daughter, Kristine, was JonBenet’s pageant coach. It was during the 10 PM evening news that Pam first heard of JonBenet’s death. JonBenet’s photo appeared on screen as the newscasters broke the story of a little girl’s body found in the basement of her family’s home. Pam was in shock. Her first thought went to her friend, Patsy. Pam found her daughter, and together they drove to the Ramsey’s house.

They arrived as the police were busily going through the house. Despite the cold winter air, Pam and Kristine waited behind the police tape, hoping to see Patsy. The doors opened and three detectives emerged, carrying a tiny, black body bag. They watched as the little girl they had come to love was wheeled down the sidewalk lined with red and white candy canes for the Christmas season.

  grave defiled
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 09:42 PM - Forum: just BORG hate - No Replies

In October of 1999 the marble slab of JonBenet’s grave had been vandalized. Using a red marker, an unknown person wrote “No justice in the U.S.A.” just days after DA Alex Hunter announced that he would not be pressing charges against John or Patsy Ramsey after the 13 month grand jury investigation.

This would not be the only incident someone had written a message on JonBenet’s resting spot. During an interview with Larry King, John and Patsy went with the film to the cemetery in Marietta, Georgia where they found another message. This time “Daddy did it” was written on a bottom corner of the slab, also in red marker.

This is the medal JonBenet won in the talent portion of her last pageant. She performed “Rocking Around the Christmas Tree”, complete with a dance routine that including JonBenet pretending to play a little, plastic saxophone. After all of the winners has been announced, JonBenet ran off stage and gave it to her father. John keeps it tucked away in his wallet, two decades later.

  Christmas letter 1996
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 03:43 PM - Forum: Christmas Day, 1996 - No Replies

Dear Family and Friends,

It’s been another busy year at the Ramsey household. Can’t believe it’s almost over and time to start again!
Melinda has graduated from Medical College of Georgia and is working in Pediatrics ICU at Kennstone Hospital in Atlanta. John Andrew (2nd) is a Sophomore at the University of Colorado.
Burke is a busy fourth grader where he really shines in math and spelling. He played flag football this fall and is currently on a basketball binge! His little league team was #1. He lost just about all of his baby teeth, so I’m sure we’ll be seeing the orthodontist in 1997!
JonBenet is enjoying her first year of “real school”. Kindergarten in the Core Knowledge program is fast paced and five full days a week. She has already been moved ahead to first grade math. She continues to enjoy participating in talent and modeling pageants. She was named “America’s Miss Royale Tiny Miss” last summer and is Colorado’s Little Miss Christmas. Her teacher says she is so outgoing that she will never have trouble delivering an oral book report!
John is always on the go traveling hither and yonder. Access recently celebrated its one-billion $$ mark in sales, so he’s pretty happy! He and his crew were underway in the Port Huron to Mackinac Island yacht race in July, but had to pull out midway due to the lack of wind (Can you believe that?) But, his real love is the new “old looking” boat, Grand Season, which he spent months designing.
I spend most of my “free time” working in the school and doing volunteer work. The Charlevoix house was on the home tour in July and will likely appear in one of the better Homes and Garden publications in 1997. On a recent trip to NYC, my friend and I appeared amid the throng of fans on the TODAY show. Al Roker and Bryant actually talked to us and we were on camera for a few fleeting moments!
We are all enjoying continued good heath and look forward to seeing you in 1997! One final note… thank you to all of my “friends” and my dear husband for surprising me with the biggest, most outrageous 40th birthday bash I’ve ever had! We’ll be spending my actual birthday on the Disney’s Big Red Boat over the new year!
Merry Christmas and much love,
The Ramseys.

One of the last photos taken of JonBenet Ramsey on Christ morning, 1996. The Ramsey family had plans to meet up with John’s two older children, Melinda and John Andrew, on December,26th. They were to fly out to Charlevoix, Michigan to celebrate the holiday together. The gift shown is the one Melinda and John Andrew purchased for their kid sister, JonBenet. 20 years later, it remains unopened.

Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 03:19 PM - Forum: Patsy Ramsey: What the Pilot's Wife Knew - No Replies

Pam Archuleta, the wife of the Ramsey’s pilot, remembers JonBenet as a bright, engergetic child. One summer night, when they were all gathered at the Ramsey’s Mighican home, Pam noticed the fireflies. When she was young, she believed they were magical, like fairies.

“Do you believe in fairies?” she asked JonBenet.
“Oh, Pam, I do!” JonBenet exclaimed. “I think I see one over there!” The little girl pointed and ran off. She appeared from the the other side of the house, giggling and skipping and pretending to fly.
“Oh, JonBenet! You are the fairy I saw!”
“No, Pam. I’m just following her around the yard,” JonBenet replied rather sternly. “Can’t you see her?”
“Yes! I do believe I see her!”
JonBenet got close to Pam’s face and asked her where she saw it. Pam pointed to a firefly that was hovering near by. JonBenet turned to face her again.
“Pam,” she said, seriously, “that is a firefly.”

During the last months of her life, JonBenet had discovered a new interest in rock climbing after joining her brother, Burke, for a lesson at the local recreation center. Once they returned home Burke told John, “Dad, JonBenet is good at rock climbing! She’s like a spider!”

JonBenet was signed up to start her lessons in January, 1997.

  Colorado's Royale Miss
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 02:33 PM - Forum: Pageants - Replies (2)

   

One of JonBenet’s favorite parts of participating in pageants was the crowning ceremony. She wasn’t concerned about the ranking of the potential title; it was the anticipation of having her name called that made it exciting. If she was announced as a winner, a beaming JonBenet would run up to the stage and collect what she referred to as her “hardware”. When she did not win her parents made sure JonBenet was right in line to congratulate the winner so that she could learn how to lose gracefully.

“She was untouched by it,” LaDonna Griego, director of the Colorado program for the All Star Kids organization, said, “When JonBenet won, she was just as giddy as the first time, and she was just as happy, it seemed, to be an alternate.

Linda, one of Patsy’s friends, had stopped by for a visit. They were chatting in the living room about various things going on in their families’ lives. JonBenet sat on her mother’s lap, listening in on the grown-up’s conversation. Patsy brought up that JonBenet had recently been in a contest.
“How did you do?” Linda asked JonBenet.
JonBenet looked up at her mom, too shy to answer. After some encouragement from Patsy, JonBenet replied with the simple answer, “I won.”
She hoped off her mother’s lap and ran outside to play. It wasn’t until later on that Linda found out that JonBenet had won the title of Little Miss Colorado.
