I WOULD LIKE TO START OFF BY SENDING OUT MY CONDOLENCES TO THE PONCE FAMILY. I WAS VERY SADDENED TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR MOMS PASSING . MRS.PONCE WAS A VERY LOVING, KIND, SWEET AND GENEROUS SOUL.. I WOULD SEE HER AT H.E.B. ALL THE TIME AND I'M NOT KIDDING YOU, WE WOULD BE IN AN AISLE TALKING AND CATCHING UP AND REMEMBERING GOOD TIMES FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES OR SO AND WE WOULD HAVE TO MOVE SO WE WOULDN'T BE IN ANYONE'S WAY. BUT WE DIDN'T CARE ABOUT AT THE TIME BECAUSE WE WERE BOTH SO HAPPY TO SEE EACH OTHER!!!! I LOVED HER VERY MUCH AND SHE WILL BE DEARLY MISSED. IN EVERYTHING SHE DID WITH LOVE, THERE WAS ALSO KINDNESS AND COMPASSION JUST BY LOOKING IN HER EYE'S. MAY EACH OF YOU FIND PEACE AND JOY KNOWING THAT SHE WILL FOREVER LIVE IN EACH AND EVERYONE OF HER CHILDREN'S, GRANDCHILDREN AND GREAT GRAND CHILDREN HEART'S AND ALL THE LIVES SHE TOUCHED!!!
