OBITUARY

Jima Lou Caballero

22 November , 194522 May , 2019

Jima Lou Caballero passed early Wednesday morning at Memorial Hermann Hospital, she was 73.

Born in Wannette, Oklahoma, she was a true small-town girl who became a beloved wife and devoted mother. Her modest and kind-hearted demeanor veiled an intelligent, quick-witted, and willfully determined woman. Selfless to a fault, her positive attitude and sense of humor were always available to brighten the day of anyone who knew her. She was an avid reader, devout Catholic with a truly kind soul, and a delightfully terrible cook (with a great sense of humor about it). Her legacy is lives that are touched by her children, grandchildren, and all the future generations to come. She will be dearly missed. She is survived by her husband of 54 years – Rafael Caballero of Houston TX, sister Judy Cooper of Greenwood AK, six children, twelve grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Epilepsy Foundation of Texas, at www.eftx.org.

MY DEAR WIFE ALWAYS LOVING, INQUISITIVE, CARING, HELPFUL, CONCERNED ABOUT THE OTHERS UNDER ANY SIRCUSTANCES. SHE TOLD ME SEVERAL TIMES "SHARING MY HUMBLE ABILITIES WITH PATINTE & LOVE, GIVES ME HONOR."

I CAN'T THINK WHERE TO BEGINE. SO MANY MEMORIES THAT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TELL THEM. SHE DIDN'T WANTED TO LET ME KNOW WHEN EVER SHE GOT HURT OR SICK IT WAS HER OWN SECRET. IF HAPPENED TO ONE OF THE CHILDREN SHE DIDN'T REST UNTIL THE CHILD WAS HEALED. SOME TIME AGO I FOUND OUT THAT SHE KEEPT EVERY LITTLE NOTE THAT I'V HAD WRITEN EVEN ON A PAPPER NAPKING. LOVING TO THE END MY EXPRESIONS FOR HER.

TU ES
Tu es ce sourire que tu sors avec tes farces,
tu es ça que j'aime tant et que tant eh attention,
tu es ce qui rend les jours meilleurs,
tu es ce fils poilu que depuis tes quelques…
jours de vie jusqu'à ton année
tu étais avec moi en grandissant
et en battant autant Obstacles....
Tu es ce qui me fait tellement défaut…

Je t'ai tenu une dernière fois dans mes bras
tu m'as dit je t'aime tu m'as donné un baiser
tu m'as donné la bénédiction et avec un sourire
tu as dit prends soin de toi tu as fait demi-tour

et même si ton amour t'arrêtait tu as
Maintenant je ne te dessine que dans ma mémoire...

Te sostuve una ultima vez en mis brazos
me dijiste te amo me diste un beso
me diste la bendición y con una sonrisa
dijiste cuídate, te diste media vuelta y aunque cansada
repetiste…ve a dormir tienes que descansar.
Le repetiste al gordo "tu papa tiene que dormir".....

et même si ton amour t'arrêtait tu as
Maintenant je ne te dessine que dans ma mémoire...

I feel so blessed to have known my Mom-in-law and to have been a part of her life. She always had great words of wisdom and an iron-clad faith that I can only aspire to. JimaLou always encouraged me to look on the brighter side of life and to not stress out over the small things. And did I tell you how selfless she was? She should be sainted! JimaLou walked through flood water that was knee high once to help little ol' me out. She was more concerned with me passing a test than she was with her own comfort. But that is her, always thinking about other people's needs before her own. God truly gave me a gift when I married into the family because I couldn't have asked for a better Mother-in-law. Patient, kind, uplifting, and accepting of me with all my faults. The world is a better place because JimaLou was here, sprinkling seeds of love that nurtured us all. I will miss you always and forever.

Mom was the kindest, most gentle soul I have ever known. She found good things in bad situations and always managed to laugh and smile. I will forever remember her for those very two things that were the center of my mom’s philosophy. Her ability to love was constant and unwavering. I loved her dearly and will always carry her in my heart.
