A woman always taken care of by her beautiful daughter. Always looking her best, whenever I got to see her. Back in the day, she always made me laugh with her stories. Spunky in her own way. She has a place in my heart. Thought of her often. Now rest in peace. Look over your family as you are now their guardian angel.

My memory was meeting her for the first time after hearing Arlin tell such wonderful stories. She just got her eyebrows done and was so hip and so down to earth. She welcomed me and made me feel at home. I got to see her again at Arlin’s wedding and as always she was full of joy. I’m so sad that I won’t be able to make it to pay my respect. My prayers to everyone. God Bless.

I remember when I was a little girl, growing up in Newark, visiting my childhood friend Arlin... our parents would all get together, share stories of Puerto Rico 🇵🇷, drink cafe con leche, pan sobao... and just have a great time. Arlin and I would play out in the back in the playground... good times my friend, good times. So very sorry for your loss, I send you and your family a huge virtual hug. My long last abiding friendship. Love you! QUE DESCANSE EN PAZ DOÑA AMPARO.

Dear Arlin and your brothers, I will always remember your Mom from when she was at Gates Manor. She was a very loving person and I know you and your family will miss her a lot. She is in Heaven now and at peace. May God bless all of you. Love, Kathy Yannetelli ❤️
