Siento mucho la pérdida de Tía Rosita. Ella fue una excelente tití, un ser muy especial y guardo gratos recuerdos de ella en el tiempo que vivió en PR que compartí con ella. Le pido al Dios que le sirvo, quien hizo el cielo y la tierra y todo lo que hay en ella, que les de la Fortaleza necesaria para soportar este dolor. Dios los bendiga a todos.

Dear Edgar,

My recent drumming experiences reminded me of you. I lost 8 people I loved in the last 2.5 years and have been thinking of you. I am so sad to hear of your lost but please remember she passed with you and those who loved her. Please let me know and share with me any feeling you have. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Remember when she goes just think she is going HOME and with the people she loves and also she can do greater miracles for you and your sisters from HEAVEN!!!
Love you,

I will always remember going over for the annual big Christmas Eve bash - first with my dad and he and Mr. Santiago would sit on the back porch drinking sangria and giggling :) and then with Jim and now with my kids, too! I am so very glad we got to do that last year. It was great to see her again. She was so kind and such a wonderful cook. I loved her filling me in on her favorite soap opera Ruby? or Rudy? - that was all in Spanish - so she'd tell me what everyone was saying LOL It was fun! She will be missed by all of us who had the pleasure of being part of her life. Prayers and condolence for all of you Gladys, Bea, and Edgar... Pam Hoepner (and Jim, Elizabeth, Emily, and Ethan)

Era todo alegría. Gran esposa, madre y amiga. Siempre estará con nosotros. Besos.
