My cousin Tania as an amazing human being. She was able to overcome so much in life with her strength and bravery. We shared countless hours talking about challenges she had gone through and was going through presently with her health. Always loving and caring she never failed to call me when I was going through something even if she wasn’t feeling well. Tania adored her family and was so very proud not only of her children but the grandkids. She would always share with me what was going on with them, whether it was with school, jobs or their love lives. Through all of the challenges she would always tell me how Felipe was always there for her and what incredible luck she had to have been able to build a life with him.

I was lucky to have her as a cousin but more so as a loving friend. She will always hold a very special place in my heart. I will dearly miss you prima.

My friend since 1953 and even more years with my wife Mary.
So many memories from high school, the help your family gave us
in getting to know New York City and how to dress for the cold weather. Plus your call about an opening in IFF, I went and stayed for 37 years. The trip to Niagara Fall where we met “the guy”,
Sr. Felipe. Our phone calls phone calls.
A good friend, a great wife, mother and grandma.
We all will keep you on our memories and our hearts.

To Tania's family and friends:

Upon viewing the pages of Tania's 1956 Bachillerato Yearbook, one is struck by the variety of temperaments suggested by the photos of the graduates. Among such, Tania's sweetness stands out, and her classmates remember her accordingly.

To Tania's family and friends, you will be consoled by having shared your lives with her.

Tania, do you remember when we studied all night long after renouncing our chemistry grades in last high school semester? Your Mom made expresso coffee for us to stay awake and we went to the chemical test next day to end up with 100 in chemistry? That decided our lives and went to college to study physics and chemistry! I will never forget that bond between us!
