In the short time I met him, Julius was such a kind and funny man! I am so sorry for your loss, but his broken heart is now reunited with his bride. I am praying for the Rambat family. For those who mourn, Jesus comforts.

Delphine and Julius were life long friends of my parents, Madeline and Mike, and in no small way they were responsible for my parents buying their Florida condo in Bradenton, right next door to the Rambats.
I just spent 7 weeks in Florida at our condo, and every time I look out the window at the building next door I think about Delphine and Julius and the wonderful times they enjoyed while living there. The place isn’t the same without them, as is the case with our place in Florida as well, but our parents memoriies stay with us forever and they live on through us.
My deepest sympothies to all the children and grand children. Your Dad was a gem and will certainly be missed by all.

Julius will always stay one of the most dearest people to my heart. I will never forget Julius’s kindness and goodness.
Julius and Delphine were such genuine people, absolutely pleasure to be around. Their generosity went long way. It makes us happy to think that they both had a very good life, that they had such good children who took care of them, and that they were fortunate enough to see their grandchildren growing up.
We are praying for Julius and the family now.

I am so sorry I missed the family visitation as I wanted to see all three of you children. I opened with the Rambats at Milo’s and think often of how kind and what a great influence they had on my life. I think of my time there often always with a smile.
Truly a privilege to have known them. A great father, friend and boss. He will be missed by many. I am truly sorry for your loss.
