Mary, this is the hardest note I have ever written, but I needed to say goodbye to my best friend, even though we were more like sisters than friends. We shared 26 years of good and bad memories. We laugh and cried, in and out of the office. But we wouldn’t have change not one. I pray for your family and your son, who you were so proud of , and your grandson who was your whole world. That he remembers you always. As for us who stay behind, you will never be forgotten. We are better people for having a friend like you. Rest In Peace and see you some day. Gloria

My friend, Chayo, I still cannot believe I am saying goodbye to you. I talked with you the day before, but the Lord had other plans for you. Thank you for being my friend since grammar school and for always staying in touch with me. May you now dance on the streets of gold with our Lord. Till we see each other again. Love you ❤️
