Tia Mary, I will miss you and your sweet laugh. You were always so kind and loving. Thank you for all the wonderful memories shared at family birthdays, fourth of July's at your home, Christmas and family reunions. I am heartbroken about your passing. But I know that you're now at peace and enjoying paradise with Joel, who we all miss dearly as well. Although, I am sad I cannot be physically there to see your sweet face one last time, I am praying for your peaceful rest and my thoughts are with you and your family from afar. I will have you in my heart, my mind, and my memories forever. Love you and miss you so much.

Sister I will always cherish the times we spent together. My grandsons Zvin and Cylis adore you as well as Delton and Haylee. They loved you dearly. They knew when you were around there would be lots of treats and crafty things for them to do. They so loved the pinitas you made. Couldn’t believe the birthday cake Pinita you made for our brother Fred’s birthday party this year in June. You have always been there for me and my family and we are thankful and very grateful for all your help through out the many years. Yes you were fisty you stood your ground but at the end of the day you always said “Hey Girl Just Kidding” and ended it with a hug. I’m glad I was able to be your servant during once when you were feeling under the weather. Gave us a time to bond and enjoy sister time.

Last November we all went on a cruise. We all worried you would get sick. Well you did great on the other hand most of us ended up getting sick. You were a joy to be around. You will be deeply missed. Love you with all my heart!

I will always cherish the memories that I shared with Ms Mary during all the cheer competitions and even the times we just had outside of cheer. She was always so kind and very sweet. She will be truly missed but I know she is in a better place. To Jen, Manuel and Elena I will continue to pray for you guys and I’m here if you ever want to just talk.

Tia Mary I am so sad about you being sick and passing on the the Kingdom glory. I know Joel was there to meet you at the gate and I can just imagine your smile when you saw him. I just want to thank you for loving me and always opening your home to me when I was living in Dallas. I think I spent more time with you when I was 15 than my father and I really appreciate you for that. I remember sitting in the kitchen with you talking about everything while you cooked and going for walks after dinner. You would laugh at me because the sound of the locus used to get on my nerves. We don't have those here in Seattle and I was a little scared of them. Lol!I lived in Texas half of my twenties and I wish I would have visited you when I was down there. I will forever be thank to you for all your support when my father died. I pray you are at peace looking down on your loved ones. I can't wait to see you again when it's my time to go home. Love you always, your niece Elisa Marie
