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.

  The Medal John Keeps

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.

  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.

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
