Graciela was a very kind and loving friend to me. we became instant friends at Costco where we worked for Club Demonstration Services. We gave out samples of food which we were to sell to the members. She always helped me when I needed it. We have lost a wonderful woman and friend. She will be missed. I will miss my friend very much! God Bless her.

I only knew Graciela a short time, but her kindness will remain in my memory and heart always. She constantly modeled a helpful, loving attitude which daily was exhibited in words of encouragement and a never ending supply of hugs! I am truly so very sorry for her family and the world's loss.

Graciela is a warm loving hard working woman. She is kind and giving woman. Graciela once saved a person choking while at work. She loved her family and was very proud of them all. I will think if her often. I will miss her smiling face when ever I go to her place of employment. Graciela I love you and will greatly miss you.

I am heartbroken that Graciela has left us, but to be absent from the body, when you have trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior is to be present with the Lord, a far far better place to be.
Graciela was always sweet, kind, patient, and loving and was a pure joy to work with. She was always helpful and had a great sense of humor and always a big smile. She will be greatly missed but always in our hearts.
