Herlita Imperial Ramos Obituary

Herlita Puruganan Imperial-Ramos, age 90, of Fort Walton Beach, Florida, quietly passed this earthly life on Friday, March 8, 2024, surrounded by her loving family, relatives and friends.  May God grant her eternal life in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. The Lord be adored forever!
