Mrs Flores , was kind , loving and caring ex-Mother in law to me. I will always be grateful to her for always being there for my son Jacob and my daughter in law Alisha, she was more than a grandmother to him. She was a friend, someone he could always count on. She was the best grandma /great grandma to grandchildren Joey, Nick and Dylan. You could always walk into her home or my sonโ€™s home and you know she had cooked her famous carne guisada and home made tortillas. She was a woman of faith, compassion and always treated everyone with love and respect. I always enjoyed sitting down and visiting with her. She will be dearly missed. Mrs Flores was a special lady. My prayers and sincere condolences to Adam and the rest of the family. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
