RIP my sister in law/ tia Yolanda Cantu
In December of 2019 I felt a need to go visit Yolanda and family not knowing that would be the last time I would see her hug her kiss her and spend time with her. I always and will always remember you especially how you dance with my brother Roy we always talk about it how beautiful you all danced like he would pick you and fly with you dancing them rancheras and many many more memories we have in our heart also how you cooked when I was young loved to see you cooking and making flour tortillas and always taking care of her family yes many memories we will hold in our heart for ever . My heart is heavy with pain my tears won’t stop but I know that someday we will see each other again. You are no longer in pain RIP my cuñada till we meet again fly high. You will be missed my sister in law Yolanda Cantu gone but never forgotten
Prayers to my familia Cantu and their families my heart is heavy the pain is hard I ask God to give you all comfort and strength through this difficult time we love you all.

Being Yolanda's older brother, she grew up trying to outbeat us on all our boy games. I was constantly chasing her because she would be taking my marbles. I remembered one time, chasing her with mom's Chancla. Mom was cooking some beans. I threw the chancla at Yolanda and to everyones surprise, it landed on the casuela de beans. We ate beans with chancla that night for supper. I got a whipping and Yolanda got away with. But not till our neighbor Uncle Ollie called her. "Lilanda, you're getting fat as a pig"
Then I would called her Lilanda, Lilanda and she would try to kick me. I would kick everyone and got another whipping. Life was good growing up with my beautiful sister. Remember pushing her over the fence, she tore her purple dress with white bow. I tried to sew it bach and guess what? Got another whipping. My sister was spunky at boy games and very poised when she had her dress on.

Roy, Adela, Monica, Leonard, & Nick- Even though we lost contact years ago, my heart still aches for your whole family during this difficult time. Your mom was always so nice to me and my sister. She never seemed to mind having 2 extra kids running around her house when we were neighbors. Please accept my deepest condolences- I pray that you all can feel the love and prayers being sent your way.

Wishing you peace and comfort,

My sister, was called "La reina de las canicas." She was 5 yrs. and she could beat any boy at marbles. If she lost all her marbles,she would borrow 2 and win all her marbles back. El pocito was her favorite for playing marbles. Next to that she had more tops then my brothers. She could break their tops with one single strike.
Climbing tress was her best thing.
Climbing down was an impossible. Mother always had to call our neighbor Don Federico to get her down.
On Sunday, she was the best poised little girl. Didn't want nobody to touch her dress, gloves,or purse. Grew up to be quite a beautiful woman. My sister.
