My precious mom was known as “Tita” in our household. She was blessed to be a grandmother again by the birth of my only child, Austin. She was shocked yet excited about my pregnancy in knowing I would finally be a mom. Austin could not pronounce “abuelita” meaning grandma in Spanish. He shortened it to Tita, and that’s how she got her nickname. Their relationship was my gift in life, and the memories made are endless! Dena nailed so many priceless childhood memories! I forgot about the sewing needles our feet found while walking on the carpet! LOL! She would give you her last dollar, and it would make her so happy! She was a giver, a provider, and never expected anything in return. Her laughter was intoxicating forcing you to belly laugh with her! Even her loud sneezes would scare you to death to only end in pure laughter. ACHAAAA!! Many friends have text me their memories that I had forgotten, and I reflect on just how special she was to so many people. She touched so many lives in positive ways just being herself. That’s a special quality she was born with, and I was rewarded being able to claim her as my mom. She will be dearly missed, but oh the memories we created to reflect on forever. Missing you so much, but I know I will see you again soon. Until then, I hold you in my heart. I love you, mom!! 💕

The first time I met her she melted my heart. Her beautiful smile just captured me. You will be missed Tita! Your smile would always make my day. May you finally Rest In Peace. 🙏🏽😘

Tita was the best! I loved hearing her laugh with me which always ended with the phrase "Ah, Dena".
She was full of life and laughter, and let me be as silly as I wanted, she laughed at everything I did, so it made me want to make her laugh even more.
Welcome home Tita, I'm sure you and Dad are catching up right now. I will forever remember your kindness and love, as well as.....
You making all my school costumes, having to walk around the house eyeballing the floor for needles, wearing your custom made jeans, and feeling like Brooke Shields, watching you walk to the house from the bus stop, pillows and phone books in your driver's seat. Singing while Dad and Hector played piano, putting on concerts for you in the livingroom, watching Lawrence Welk with you, calling out the front door for Pepi, YOUR SNEEZING, red rose medicine 😉, and so many more precious memories. Miss and Love you❤❤❤
