I will always remember you for taking me dancing and blasting one of our favorite bands on the radio, Intocable. I won't forget the crazy things you'd tell me when we spent time together and how they made me laugh. We would laugh together. We made memories before FB was a thing or camera phones were so common. So while I don't have personal pictures of just you and I, I do have my memories and that is how I will always remember you. You were a great cook and so giving to others and always wanted to do whatever it took for your family. I will love you always.

Tu sobrina con amor,

Tia Laura,

I will always love you and treasure the many memories we’ve shared. We never know when our last time of seeing someone will be...I couldn’t imagine last Saturday would be the last time.

I appreciate you loving and accepting me as your niece. Thank you for supporting me and my students. You will forever be with us...we count daily with the bingo daubers and bottle caps 😀. You will truly be missed. I know you are cooking and playing bingo in heaven. ... Love you much tia.
