  JonBenet memories
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 02:25 PM - Forum: other family members - Replies (12)

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.

One of JonBenet’s favorite activities during the summer was to go put-put golf with her family. As it was her competitive nature, the little girl tried to keep up with all of the “big kids” and adults. One day JonBenet had managed to get a hole-in-one. She was so happy that she started leaping into the air! The excitement continued when her grandma also scored one. They both jumped up and down and laughed so hard until it hurt.

I wonder what Daphne thinks now.  I am sorry she had to deal with any of this.

The Ramsey Family’s 1995 Christmas Card

John and Patsy Ramsey 1995 Christmas Newsletter
Twas a week before Christmas with a million things to do, And wouldn’t you know it, Mom came down with the flu. Fortunately the gifts were all gotten and under the tree, But the Christmas cards didn’t make it - as you can well see! So we’ll take this opportunity to extend the Holiday Cheer. And be the first to wish you a Healthy & Happy New Year!
We’ve finally given in to the computerized form letter! What better way to keep the high-tech industry in business!? Speaking of business, John and Access are going great guns. Europe has been successfully conquered with offices in every country except Norway! Mexico & Canada opened too. (Can you believe this grew out of our garage on Northridge?) Anyway, John was rewarded by parent company, Lockheed-Martin, by being elected an office of the company.
All work and no play make John a dull boy, so he leaves plenty of time for the latter. This year John, John Andrew, and Melinda took the crew of the Miss America (our sailing sloop) to victories in the NOOD Races in Chicago and a 4th place division finish of the Chicago-Mackinac Island Race. Seventy-knot winds in the Mac race really made the finish line look pretty good! John Andrew is a freshman at CU here in Boulder, and Melinda is due to complete her Nursing Degree from MCG [Medical College of Georgia] in Augusta next June.
Burke is busy in his third grade year at a new school named High Peaks. It is a Core Knowledge school which accesses high academics and personal achievement. He loves it! He continues with Boy Scouting and the piano. This winter he is the tallest guy on his basketball team. Summer on Charlevoix was spent taking golf and sailing lessons each day. Burke is quite the sailor!
JonBenet too had a busy summer in Charlevoix. She was crowned Little Miss Charlevoix in a pageant in June and spent the rest of the summer riding in convertibles in various home-town parades throughout Michigan. She performed a patriotic tap & song for her talent. She and Burke both won ribbons in several decorated bicycle contests. In October, JonBenet become Little Miss Colorado, she rode on the “Good Ship Lollipop” float during the Boulder Christmas parade. (Grandpa Paugh built the float!) She waved and sang all along the parade route! She also takes piano, violin, and drama classes. Busy little Pre-kindergartener![sic] (Busy Mom hauling her around!)
I continue to have good check-ups at NIH in Bethesda, MD. God has surely blessed me with energy and the ability to return to raising a family. I thank Him every morning when I wake up and see the sunrise reflecting on the Flatirons over Boulder. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.
Hope your Christmas was merry and here’s to 1996! By the time you read this we’ll be cheering on the Buffs at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas and then on to the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix! Thanks to everyone who visited us in Colorado or Charlevoix this year. Please come see us in 1996! Love to you all!
The Ramseys

  Christmas Eve
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 12:24 PM - Forum: Ramsey holiday plans 1996 - No Replies

   


Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, a giant Christmas star made up of holiday lights shines for nearly two months. It has become a beloved tradition amongst residents of Boulder. After the Christmas Eve service and dinner at their favorite restaurant, the Ramsey family piled into their car to tour around Boulder for Christmas lights. Everyone was filled with the holiday spirit. They oohed and aahed over all of the beautiful displays as Christmas music played on the radio.

As the Ramseys made their way through Boulder, they drove up to where the famous star shines. JonBenet begged her parents to make a pit stop. She wanted everyone to get out of the car so they could walk up the side of the mountain and stand in the middle of the star. Her parents said no; it would be too much of a mess with everyone was still dressed in their Christmas mass finery. Next year, Patsy attempted to assure her daughter, they would come fully prepared with snow boots.
JonBenet was not pleased with this decision, and replied, “Well, what’s the use of coming up here if we’re not going to stand in the middle of the star?”

  a story to smile at
Posted by: jameson245 - 09-20-2018, 12:14 PM - Forum: Pam and Kristine Griffin - No Replies

To help better prepare her daughter for pageants, Patsy hired a coach for JonBenet. She asked Pam Griffin, the seamstress who created JonBenet’s custom pageant outfits, if her daughter, Kristine, would be interested. Kristine, who was a beauty queen herself and a senior in high school at the time, agreed. Using the makeshift runway in the Griffin’s basement, she taught JonBenet how to properly do a pageant walk and poses on stage. In between practices they would take a break to play video games. The two quickly felt more like sisters rather than a coach and student.

One day, while Kristine was visiting the Ramsey’s house, JonBenet decided that instead of practising to be a pageant star, she would take on the role of match maker. John Andrew, JonBenet’s oldest brother, was visiting home to help John paint a room, and JonBenet thought he and Kristine would make the perfect couple. The little girl interrupted the lesson to announce this to Kristine. She was determined to make it happen. Giggling, JonBenet grabbed her coach by the hand and tried to drag her out to meet John Andrew. Despite Kristine’s amused protests, JonBenet persisted, at least until Kristine was finally able to distract her.

“I cannot remember her in any pageant clothes or dresses. She was just a typical little girl in jeans and a t-shirt, dressed up in little-girl dress only for a special occasion like Thanksgiving or Christmas.” – Jeff Ramsey, JonBenet’s uncle
