Tia, when I think of you I see such an amazing woman! Your voice was so sweet as I write this I can hear it in my head the hugs you gave were so warming. I have so many memories with you I'm blessed to have those I can carry with me wherever I go. Listening to “All I Have To Do Is Dream” with you while we ate cantaloupe and vanilla ice cream. Playing oldies while driving to the cemetery with new decorations to put up. You made my childhood a lot better with the memories you cherished me with more than you realized. I love you tia and can't wait to get another hug from you till then I'll listen to “All I Have To Do Is Dream” and think of you

Tia Lucy,
Losing someone you love is one of the hardest things about life. You no longer get to see their face, hear their voice, or cherish your time with them. Instead, you are saved by memories, phone calls, and photographs. Tia Lucy, I am so honored to be your niece. You have taught me that when life gets rough, to move forward.
Your beautiful soul will live on forever in our hearts, our dreams and our memories.
I will miss your beautiful smile and positive attitude. You were an incredible sister, mother, wife and aunt. I love you!
Love always,
Your Clareeesa

Sister-in-law Lucy, I can’t even think of you as being in the past, but I know that you are no longer with us and all that is left is memories. Good memories that will always be cherished. I enjoyed talking with you because you made facial expressions; your laugh came from deep down within your heart, which I will always remember and cherish.
I remember last year we were cooking and you showed me an easier way to make chile in 5 minutes; compared to me making it the authentic way for the last 50 years by roasting the chilies and using the molcajete and now I make it Lucy’s way.
We think of us as good mothers, and I truly believe you are the best mother & grandmother I have ever met. You would go to your grandkids’ functions whether far or near, hot or cold, you were always there. One of your last text messages you sent me when you were in the hospital was “please pray for me, this is torture”. Sis-in-law, you are no longer in pain or feel tortured, you are now with Gus, Rey and the rest of your family. Until we meet again.
Love, Mercey & Jess.

Hey Sissy, you weren't supposed to leave us! If only I'd known that the last time I saw you would be the last; I would have hugged you harder and tell you how much I loved you. Oh Sissy, the day you left, a part of me went with you. Words can't express the pain I feel and knowing I will no longer see you or talk to you, hurts. You were a beautiful woman inside & out, with a beautiful soul, a beautiful personality and a kind heart. I will miss our talks, your sisterly advice, your silliness and you calling us "hey". Thank you God for blessing me with a beautiful, loving & kind sister and for the memories that will forever be cherished. Sissy you will always be in my heart. No more pain, no more suffering, for now you are reunited with your beloved Tavo, your son Rey, Momma, Dad, and our brothers Chavelo, Joe & Tony.
A light from my life has gone, a voice I love is still, a vacant place in my heart which never will be filled. A bouquet of beautiful memories sprayed with a million tears, I wish God could have spared you for many more years. I know you will watch over me from heaven. I will hold you close within my heart, there you will remain to walk with me through out my life until we meet again. So rest in peace my beautiful Sissy. Love your lil' Sissy~Carolyn

Que Dios haya recibido con los brazos abiertos a nuestra querida amiga Lucy. Fueron más de veinte años de una hermosa amistad en la cual disfrutábamos de vez en vez de pláticas humorísticas, de familia y de aquel angelito impreso que alguna vez le regalé y que guardaba celosamente a un lado de su escritorio donde laboraba y orgullosamente cumplía como una profesional en lo que le gustaba hacer; ayudar a las familias. Por siempre en nuestro corazón, querida amiga. Abrazo en oración a sus hijos, nietos, y demás familiares en estos momentos difíciles y ruego a Dios les de consuelo a su afligido corazón por la inmensa e irreparable pérdida de sus padres.
