CHILDHOOD

Hard Work in the Fields Ramsey was no stranger to hard work. He held many jobs as a young boy, and contributed his earnings to his family. He writes, "During the summer my mother would be up by 3:00 AM preparing breakfast and lunch for us, as we would depart from the house at 5:00 and arrive the cotton field by 6:00 AM. She would pick cotton with us. I can still see her face sweating and pulling the 12 foot cotton sack. When it was time to eat lunch, we would all gather under the cotton trailer as she would distribute the food she had prepared. Thereafter, we had half an hour to rest or nap because by 1:00 PM we hit the field once more until 4:30 PM. Even as I share these historical memories, I can envision her face, which is full of love, pride, strength, faith, and a "never give up" attitude like no one else in this world. By the time I was 14 years old, Bobby and I could pick 1,000 pounds a day. I would not even take the time to eat. I wanted my mother to be proud of me. That's how much love I have for my mother."
Working Late Hours While in junior  high school, Ramsey set pins at the Ayers Bowling Alley. His mother would drive him there after school and he set pins until 10:00 PM.
Refueling 18 Wheelers One morning Ramsey was awakened to be informed that he was to take a trip. He jumped into a truck with his father, unaware that he would remain alone for the summer close to Victoria, Texas and pump gas for 18 wheelers. He would rise early each morning and run 4-5 miles to arrive on time and fill the gas tanks of 18 wheeler trucks.Ramsey was fourteen.
