I'm sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences go out to you and your family. From Diana Martinez Vasquez. This memory was taken in Segun on grandma's 100 Birthday

My condolences to everyone grandma touched. May she rest in peace with her loved ones. She was a strong woman. She was a breast cancer survivor. Not many understand just how strong you have to be to pull that off with as much grace as she did. I personally had a scare with cancer and all I kept thinking to myself is ... If grandma did it, shoot I will give it a good fight and let the Lord's will be done. Unknowingly to her, she was one of my sources of courage. She will truly be missed. May the good Lord have pac man, a game room, sweet bread and tamales for our grandma.

My sincere condolences to all the Ascension family. Grandma was the matriarch to the family. All the family holidays, we would always see her cooking and getting the house ready. Such great memories I have and will always have. May she rest in peace and may all of you find comfort in knowing that there was no greater love then Mom's. She will always be Mom to me.
