Grandma not a single day passes that I don't think of you and miss you. I am thankful you're no longer in pain but this world has lost some of its sunshine without you. I hope you and God are having a great time in heaven especially having such a great view of the lakers. I love you

To All the Vasquez:
Words feel inadequate to express the sadness that we feel. Your mother's Eden's Flower shop use to sponsor "The Cardinals little league team for many years from the Guadalupe Field for Mr.Albert V. Monge. Mrs. Vasquez's support helped a lot of young boys stay off the barrio streets (20 years). We cannot express how we grieve at your loss. Our earnest prayers and thoughts are there to give peace through the days ahead. The loss is very unbearable, but with memories, faith and courage, you shall heal. We are so very sorry for your loss. May God bless all of you with comfort in this difficult time.

To all of the Vasquez Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Armida was such a wonderful lady and caring person. She always made me feel as if I were a part of your family. I hope that time and memories can ease the sorrow you are feeling at this time. Take comfort knowing she will always live in our hearts.

On behalf of everyone that ever visited Eden's Flowers for Proms, Presentations or Weddings. Even if it was a last minute order or color change she never made it seem like a burden to her already over worked day. Her customers were special to her and she was "Special" to her customers.
She may even be making the centerpieces for our Lord's dinner table.
