Guicha was such a beautiful person inside and out! I loved to make her laugh and smile, she made it so easy for me! She was always thinking of others. Each and every time I would see her she ask " Esteve, como está tú mamá y tú abuela?" Always asked about my family! I'm going to miss her giggle so much, we'd drive her home after an outing sometimes and I'd have to help her into the jeep, so I'd grab her waist and pick her up and helped her sit down, she'd ALWAYS giggle and smile at me! Guicha, thank you for excepting me as Leana's husband, thank you for always making me feel loved, thank you for ALWAYS keeping my belly full, even when I wasn't there ( she'd always send food home for me), but most of all, thank you for so many beautiful memories these past 18+ years I've been around you! I'm going to really miss you, you truly were more like my abuelita too! I love you and I look forward to seeing you again on the other side! Besos Guicha!

My fondest memories of my Abuelita will always be that every Christmas I would send her a box of sugar free cookies. She looked forward to receiving them. She would call me with such excitement to let me know she was already enjoying her cookies with her cup of coffee. When my late husband Joe was alive - he and Abuelita would always share a beer together. There are no words to express the tremendous loss our family has just been through. That smile of hers was so genuine and innocent. Her unconditional love was unique. She had a way of being that can never be measured by another human being. Nothing bothered her. She didn't complain. She went with the flow. She found humor in everything. She was just such a beautiful soul to be around. And if you weren't in a good mood she was always the person who would light up your life at that moment. She was a woman of faith. I will always remember our conversations about God, life, family and love. I love you Abuelita. And you will be missed forever!!!!

Wicha! A dear lady I came to know through my best friends, Mike and Cindy. She so loved her boy, and enjoyed visiting him at his Florida home. Always very sweet to me. A kiss on the cheek. A pat on the tush. And a reminder that I'd put on weight, lol. She played a mean Left, Center, Right and was happy to share a nice glass of wine. I imagine she, Mike and my dear husband James are toasting us all from heaven. Salud, Wicha. Salud! God bless Norma, Cindy and all the family. Love you much.

One memory that I hold dear to me is whenever I'd do abuela's hair she would hold the color bowl and turn it just at the right time when she knew I was running low. Insisting we have coffee together while she processes, we'd talk about work, how she was feeling that day and what our plans were for the week. She would always ask about each of my siblings and of course her "Esteve" LOL The best part of my visit would be when we finished her hair she'd smile, that iconic smile, and say she was ready to go to a party. Abuela would let out a coy chuckle and she she'd touch her hair with a look of approval and kiss me. I always left full, knowing I could never duplicate her cooking and just filled with gratitude that I still had my precious Abuela.
