I have many wonderful memories of you Tia, but the one I think I will always remember is falling out the car while you were driving and my grandma in the passenger seat and you being mad at the man honking behind us. I laugh about it all the time, and always think of you while passing under the freeway, lol. I love you, Tia.

My favorite memory of you wela was when we went out dancing and having a good time. Then those late nights talking about everything and anything until we fell asleep. I love you so much.

My favorite memory of you:
Wrapping my arms around your waist, and lying my head in your lap. Nobody knows the depth of my love for you. I had the best of two worlds with you, a bonus mom and grandmother. I will miss you forever.

I remember when I was small my dad would always take us every summer to Corpus Christi to visit his sister aunt Mary and then we will go out to eat at that Mexican restaurant around the corner and then we’ll go to the beach with the family or either we would rent a hotel and go swimming at the pool I remember aunt Mary always being there and always saying I’ll be nice I’ll play I’ll have fun I will miss my Aunt I love her also
