My Beautiful Mommy, I am missing you today but I know that you and Daddy will always be with me in my heart... I am who I am because of your loving hands. I have my sweet and compassionate soul from watching you and Daddy and your generosity and kindness to others....

Mommy, I know you and Daddy are listening from the heavens above. There’s nothing that I value more, than your good morals, values and the love you’ve instilled in me. No matter where I am or what I am doing, your memories will always keep me smiling.

Thank you God for such wonderful parents

Mommy and Daddy I love you and will miss you always and forever💕

Until we meet again...
Your baby daughter

To my loving Chepita,
Words cannot express the sadness that I am feeling at the moment. You were one to bring so much joy and happiness into the room as soon as you walked in. You were such a beautiful, loving, and kind woman, who never turned anyone away in their time of need, and for that I was so blessed to have you as my grandmother. Aside from my sorrow, I have found comfort and happiness knowing that you are reunited with Grandpa. You were both such astonishing role models for our family and the legacy you established will never be forgotten. I love and miss you both with all my heart❤️

To my grandma,
who was one of the most sweetest people that had ever walked this earth.. God gifted me with the honor of calling you my grandmother. Although my heart is heavy with sorrow, I find comfort in the thought of you and grandpa being together once again. I love you so much grandma and there are no words that could describe how much I’m going to miss you, but I know one day we’ll see each other again.
With all my love,

Suegra you are dearly missed. You were my mom when my mom wasn’t here. I am so glad I was your favorite son-in-law. I have so many fond memories of you. Your love and caring soul to anyone who entered your presence is an example of how we should all live.
Until we see each other again

Love Johnny (#1 son-in-law)

My beautiful Chepita, I will miss our special times when we would watch Hallmark and Family Feud. You raised your children with wonderful morals and values and I for one will live my life as such. Rest In Peace mom.

God has called an Angel home to heaven. The world is a better place for having you with us. The sun rises and the moon shines as your spirit soars. You were the Matriarch of this family and our lives are better for having you with us. We are the people we are today due to your love, guidance and wisdom. You touched the lives of all that knew and loved you. I will forever yearn to see your beautiful eyes and bright smile. You will forever live in our hearts. Watch over us, keep us safe and guide us to walk in your footsteps!
I Love and miss you Suegra. ❤️

Hi Nora, Your mother was a true angle in disguise. I have never forgotten what she did for me- she practically saved my life. No telling where I’d be if she and your family hadn’t taken me in.
Your mother (parents) provided a safe haven for me at a time when I needed it the most. I didn’t have stability, love or affection growing up, but your family took me in, without question. And without asking for anything in return. She fed me, gave me a warm bed to sleep in and treated me like part of the family. I remember your family eating at Ojeda’s and here I go tagging along with you girls.
Those are the best memories that I carry close to my heart. I mean what I said from the bottom of my heart. Your family saved me and I am who I am today because of your mother and all your sisters.
Your mother looked as lovely as an angel 😇 I’m glad I had the opportunity to show my respect. ❤️
