I still can't believe that your gone. I'm still not accepting it and I'm still acting like your still here with me. I'm always going to remember the last weeks we had together. On my lunch everyday I would go spend it with you at the hospital and nursing home. We would just talk and laugh together while remembering old memories. The day before you passed I am always going to remember me feeding you your breakfast and the nursing telling you, "Guadalupe can you feed yourself" and you said "No my granddaughter is feeding me". :) I was sooo happy to do that for you Abuelita. I know you were looking forward to coming home with me and I was going to take care of you. I was excited about it too. Please always be with me and take care of me. I will always have you in my heart and will always keep your memory alive. Please take care of my mijo Chris and Rosanne. I love you with all my heart Abuelita!! I will miss you so much.

Thank you for everything! You were a wonderful mother and I don't know how I'm going to live without you. It has been extremely hard to accept that you are no longer here with us. I am going to miss you! Please give my Chris a big hug and kiss from me and tell him that I love him with all my heart!
La quiero mucho mami!
