I will always remember when Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Paul came to live in Albuquerque for a short while, when our family was living there. We would meet up at their apartment and play rousing games of pigmania! So much fun and laughter. I'll always remember when Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Paul were getting up to mischief as you'd see a twi kle in their eyes...followed by rounds of laughter and Uncle Paul always playing innocent. They were a match made in heaven. Now they are partying with Meme and Grandpa and Aunt Melba and Uncle Ralph, uncle Junior and Dad.... imagine all the mischief in heaven now♡♡♡ Much love to a wonderful Aunt and a beautiful life well lived!

Im gonna miss our daily visits and the gran pad and her hugs 💖 Every Day she would wait for me with open arms for our morning hugs. And would say you are the only one who can set my gran pad up just the way i liked it. To call her Daughter Cindy. Through out the day I would check to make sure it was set up just right for her. She was the sweetest most loving person. And that smile would just melt you. My condolences to the entire family.

theres to Many memories with my granny to only name one, she was always happy no matter what she felt like and showed so much love to me and her other family members. Everytime I would see her she would mistake me for my older sister Ashley and talk about how big and blue my eyes were when I was a baby and how much she loved watching me. My granny is somebody I want to make proud. She always put smiles on everyone’s faces. I love my granny so much and I’m happy she’s with her lover up in heaven ❤️ My gramps and granny were my two favorite people ever and may they rest in paradise
