Recuerdo que todo lo mas padre pasaba con mi tia. She worked hard to make a better life for everyone, especially for her children. She was always classy and collected, made things look easy with no drama. It was a privilege to have spent time with her, aunque por cosas del destino no fue suficiente. Pero siempre la recordaremos con ternura al hablar de ella. Con mucho amor y dolor quiero decir a mis primas que siento mucho por lo que estan pasando. A mi tio que fue su companero por tantos anos. La vida esta es temporal y tarde que temprano volveran a estar a su lado.

My deepest condolences to my family, especially Tio Benjamin, Sara, and Joe-Mayra and kids! We love you call so much and I know time will heal this pain. I know in my heart that her faith will take her to a place where her faith could not be challenged. A place where she will be reunited with our loved ones that have watched over us. Many hugs and we will all see each other again in due time! Love, Primo Eddie!
