Gatica Family,

So sorry to hear that Tia Zulema passed away. I remember all the summer's we spent in Corpus. I also remember how Tia Zulema and our mom (Tia Nelda) would laugh and share stories.

Just know that your cousins in Lansing, Michigan are thinking of you, and send you love and prayers.

God Bless
