LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The three-year-old severely burned in a house fire Saturday morning is improving. Doctors have upgraded Joseph Ramirez to satisfactory condition. He had been in serious condition.

It is bitter-sweet news from the family who laid Joseph's four-year-old brother, Jeremiah, to rest Wednesday afternoon. Services for Jeremiah were at 2 p.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church with a burial following at the Peaceful Gardens.

The family also lost their home and belongings in the fire. There is a fund set up in Jeremiah Ramirez's name at Wells Fargo Bank. You can make donations at any branch. The Calvillo Funeral home is also taking donations to help pay for the funeral expenses.

If you would like to donate clothing or supplies to the family, Joseph wears size 3T, the infant wears 6 months, and is also in need of pampers and milk. Jesse wears an XL shirt, 36" waist and 29" length pant, and a size 8 in shoes. Crucifica wears about a size 16 in women's and wears 7 1/2 in shoes. To donate these items email tpelt@kcbd.com with your contact information to be passed along to the family.

Each plate is $7 and includes brisket, potato salad, beans, bread, dessert and a drink. The dinner will be on Thursday from 6p.m. to 7p.m. Plates can be purchased from any NHS member or by emailing tinac@crosbyton.k12.tx.us   .
