Gracie, you have always been the most kind-hearted sweet lady to me since the day that we met many years ago. I looked forward to all the concerts, karaoke and all the other little things that Solera put on because I knew that you would be there and you would have the best hug for me ever. You are truly missed my friend.

Although our fathers were first friends at an early age; they later became Compadres when my Parents baptized Patrick. As kids we grew up together. Bob & Grace hosted countless parties & bbq's at the Orange Street home and even more swim parties & bbq ribs at the Litton Home. Mom & Grace said they were more than just Comadres and referred to each other as "Sisters". Grace was ALWAYS happy to see you and embraced you with a big hug and even bigger smile! Her presence would instantly light up a room. Her pride & joy were her children and grandchildren. It's obvious Jesus needed another Angel and called Comadre Grace home. You will be missed, but will remain forever in our hearts. Patty Carrasco Mena & Family

No amount of words can ever describe how much I love you Mama. You were my rock I could always come to you with anything. You would always give me the best advice , whether good or bad you always kept it real. The best time were in the kitchen and we bonded so much I loved cooking with you. You always told me to teach Witney to keep the traditions alive and pass them on to the next generation. You were so happy when I found McKinsey and Witney. I wish you could have come to see the life we made here in Fl, but I know you are watching over us and are always looking out for us too. This is never a good bye, but a see you later. RIP MAMA LOVE YOU ALWAYS
