I had so many memories with my Gma I will cherish every one of them. From the laughs and talks on the porch, car rides together, going to Laredo, countless meals we shared, to just talking on the phone. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas at her house was the best. Words can’t describe how much I will miss you. I will always love you and carry you in my heart forever. Until we meet again, Danny...

Mami and Daddy made the best decision in choosing Madrina Rita and Padrino Meme as our baptism God Parents. When they both passed away, she told me she was here to take her place.
Madrina was my second Mother, I loved her so much. I will miss her, she is in a better place.
My condolences to Carmen, Meme, Mario, Doris and all their children.
All My Love,
Leti Cruz

We will deeply miss you, Tia Rita. We have so many memories of visiting you and Tia Licha in the summertime which we will never forget. It was always so fun going to your house and playing with Enoch and all our cousins while you and Mom talked in the kitchen. I am so glad you are now in heaven with Mom and Tio Meme and the rest of our dearly departed family looking down on us with pride. God bless your family. Love you always. -The Nora Family

No matter how old we are, losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know.

She had goodness, caring, and wisdom that will live on, like a legacy of love that will always be with you. That’s what I will remember.

With deepest sympathy,
Love, Frank and Alma Garza and Family
