I remember Mary from family gatherings and my cousin Eric’s birthday parties. She was so sweet and kind and always smiling. What a blessed life to be surrounded by a large family. May you all rest in knowing that she is home with her Heavenly Father. God bless you all. Nikki, Frank & Frankie Hernandez

When I was a little boy I remember staying the night over her house was one of my favorite times, she would always cook for me, Which was usually japanese rice and other foods that were healthy, Once in a while she would order Church's chicken. She would always let me watch what I wanted on TV and play on her old computer. I miss my grandmother and am happy as I got older I was able to spend some of the last days together at my mother's house, talking to her about the old days and attempting to learn Japanese myself, I recorded her singing some of her favorite songs in Japanese that I have on my phone. Grandma I love you and can't wait to see you again ❤️
