Carlos Rojo Ramirez

This is my friend Carlos Rojo-Ramirez he was born in Santiago Amatepec Mexico.  He has been here since 1965. He has no family that we know of, Roswell, N.M. residents know him has Carlos, Indio and his famous nickname, "Lawnmower man". Few of us have helped him throughout the years,  he's been in and out of the hospital but never gave up. He would get out from the hospital and the next day would go to work.  He would always say he was strong when he really wasn't, but had to work to eat and take care of his dogs.  Until the other day a tragedy happened, his clothes caught on fire and sustained 3rd degree burns with a propane stove that he used to cook and keep warm. He's now in Lubbock, Tx. getting treatment.  He was stable and now doctors say they don't think he will make it.  They want to take off the oxygen machine and let him die, which I don't agree with!! He has no insurance and well I don't have money to cover treatment. I hope they won't let him die . I see people killing, thefts, accidents, etc... on the news all over Roswell, N.M. but never when it comes to homeless people when tragedy strikes, especially when they do no harm.  I guess my friend Carlos was not good enough for the news.. He has me and people who have helped him throughout the years. He is a good person and I am glad I had the opportunity to meet him and proud to say he's my friend. It's in GOD'S hands to decide and no one else's.
