Words can’t explain how much we are gonna miss you. I loved how you took in Alex like he was your own grandchild he loved going back to see his “grandma” and talking or watching tv with you. We will miss you, we will never forget you.

Mommy I miss you so much you were my rock my bestfriend and my everything. My heart is broken and everytime I walk into your room I feel so sad and empty because you are not there. My only comfort is that you are with daddy and you are happy. Until we meet again I love and miss you so much.

There are hundreds of things i am going to miss about you but most of all I am going to miss you telling me “god bless you mijo” before I go to work. It truly doesn’t feel the same, it feels like I’m forgetting something.

Your love for everyone in your life was endless. You were the purest of souls. You were the first person I’d see when I would get home from work and everyday. I miss you. I love you. I know you’re in heaven watching over us all.

Sharing a room with someone for 18 years I would always spend quality time with her, and now looking back, I’ve just figured out I have been taking it for granted. She was always there when I felt like I was alone. She had my back till the end, always proud of who I grew up to be, even when I didn’t know what path to take. I never thought i’d lose you when I needed you the most. You’ll always be my partner in crime, best friend and my heart. I don’t know if it will be easy to go on without you, but i’ll keep your memory alive no matter how hard it will be not to cry. I love you and miss you everyday.
