Some of my fondest memories growing up are of hanging out at Ana's house with her and her mom. Mrs Molina was such a cool mom, she took us to papering and would hang out with us. I remember her laughing and all the cute nicknames she would give us. She was so much fun. She and my mom were very close. My mom loved her so much. I remember when they would get together all they did was laugh. I'm so sad to hear of her death I know she will be missed very much but I am glad she is out of pain now and can rest and relax and have more laughs with my mom up in Heaven. May God bless you Mrs Molina, take care of my mom up there-take care of eachother!

Ernestine, Missing our friendship and talks we used to have and I was always amazed at how good you were at playing cards, because I was so bad at it. You were also the one to get several of us couples together to go out for dinner and good fellowship. May You Rest In Peace dear friend and may God Bless Frank, Ana and all Molina Family.

Ernestine, "Chia",
Was always a pleasure to see walk into a room because she ALWAYS made you LAUGH. She loved to dance, as I and I will always Cherish our dance moves together. I will miss her calling out my name with such Joy in her voice. I know all her fellow Angels are having a blast in Heaven. Chia, you may be gone, but NEVER EVER Forgotten.
Rest In Eternal Peace our Angel.

Dear Ernestine, you will greatly be missed by me. We both liked Gunsmoke, Lone Ranger and vintage movies. I have missed you at the Lara Rosary monthly prayer meetings. Frank and Ana, please accept my deepest condolences during this trying time. All of you are in my prayers. We will all meet again at the Resurrection.

Before Ernestine became ill, we had fun playing cards, or wi-fi bowling, going to lunch or shopping, or meeting at a St. Ann's or KC Dance. What I remember even more were the two trips we took to the Basilica of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle. Though a really long car trip, we had fun touring the beautiful cathedral, the local sites and restaurants, and we even visited Fredericksburg and New Braunfels. I still have my t-shirt we bought at the Bluebonnet Cafe in Marble Falls! We will miss you Ernestine, but are happy you are pain-free and now at peace. May God bless you and all the Molina family.

Ernestine, “Chia” to us growing up. Was the most fun loving and outgoing aunt. I remember when we were little she would spend time playing silly games with us that most grownups wouldn’t have the time for. She cared deeply for her huge family and always made sure everyone was checked up on. She had the most beautiful smile that was so contagious. Thank you for your love Chia. May you Rest In Eternal Peace. Love you.
