Tia Quita, a very special person my whole life, was an amazing woman. In my heart, I will I always remember her smile, our conversations, and how beautiful she was. I my tummy, I will always remember the wonderful tastes and smells of the food and sweet cinnamon and limon ice tea. She used to call my dad, her twin, her baby brother and she did try to baby him!! I have wonderful memories with my Tia Quita. My heart goes out to her children, my wonderful cousins!

Querida tía Quita: deja en mi vida unos hermosos recuerdos que se quedan grabados en mi corazón para siempre: de la mujer siempre dispuesta a servir a los demás, una mujer con una Fe inquebrantable y que ara ella Dios estaba por sobre todas las cosas, mujer luchadora por los derechos de los no nacidos a la vida, una mujer hermosa por dentro y por fuera. La quiero mucho y la voy a extrañar, reo descanse en Paz y set que está feliz disfrutando del gran banquete. Un beso hasta el cielo

Estos son momentos difíciles y de mucho pesar por la ausencia de mi Tía Quita, pero a la vez de alegría porque Dios la tiene junto a Él junto con todos sus elegidos en la Vida Eterna.
Dios que todo lo puede nos dará las fuerzas para tener una pronta resignación, y enfrentar pronto la vida con un nuevo entusiasmo, porque sabemos que mi Tía Quita nos estará protegiendo, e intercediendo ante Dios por nosotros.
Tía Quita hasta el cielo te mando mis oraciones y te extrañare siempre.
