Annie had a beautiful smile. She loved to dance and her and my brother Manuel used to tear a rug in their days. She was always the loudest one cheering for her husband and two sons playing soccer, those were great times. . She loved her boys and her grandchildren.I am sure that my brother Manuel was holding her hand at the moment that our Lord took her home. Rest in peace my dear sister-in-law. Irene

It is always difficult to lose a loved one especially one as strong as Anita. We feel very blessed and lucky to have had the opportunity to see her at her 90th birthday party. Although we will not be able to attend the visitation or funeral Anita will be in minds, hearts and prayers. She is now with Manuel and the Lord. Our condolences go out to the Rivera family.

Mom loved to laugh and showed her love by cooking for us. She was never too tired to fix something to eat even when we brought home a bunch of friends and she had been working all day. We will miss her laugh, her smile, and always remember how much our parents sacrificed so that my brothers and I could have a better life than what they knew when growing up. Rest in Peace, mom you and dad are together now and that gives us comfort and joy. It is not good bye but so long for now. Love you, Roger, Lynn & family
