Dear Elvia and Viera Family,
I will not be able to be with everyone today but my thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God give you comfort and know Elvia will not be forgotten. She will always be in our hearts and unforgettable memories. Although we didn’t see each other very often, it was always so nice see her or just simply speak on the phone. I can still hear her “Hello”, when she answered the phone. It was unique. God bless all of you. Love you all.

Mando, Alex, and Gil:
I will always remember, with a special fondness, the smiling face and kind heart that for me was your Mom. To remember her, all I have to do is close my eyes and recall the trip to California that I shared with your family. I can still see her smiling, joking, and laughing with your Dad--"Chief"--as we traveled up and down the California coast. Some of the best memories of my life. That is how she will forever be in my heart, and never forgotten.
I pray that such memories will give you comfort in this difficult time. May God grant you all peace in having been loved by such a beautiful soul. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Viera.
Love, Rallo.

There is simply no words to express what a wonderful and beautiful lady Mrs. V was and I am forever grateful for the acceptance she showed to me and all her son's friends.

Mando, Alex, Gilbert. I am deeply sorry for the loss of your dear mother. As we were growing up like brothers in the old neighborhood she was like a second mom to me and my brothers Manny and Tury. She was kind, loving and caring. I will always remember her smile and good sense of humor. May God be with you guys and comfort you, may you find peace in your faith. Danny Watkins

Me raymond the first born
The wonderful experience living
Upstairs with grandma rosa and grandpa jose Irma and lalo were going
To school and living at home all my ants
And uncles were young and beautiful
And babysiting the gang of primos and primas was wonderful elvia was always
To tell me story's about our families past and hearing about pancho via....
Just turning 70 yrs old I wouldnt change my life for nothing in the world .

Debbie I remember her warm welcome and great food. Sweet lady

Dear Mrs. Viera
I want you to know that I am trying my best to take care of your sons, they miss you so much. Losing you was painful for me, but for them it has been unbearable. Our hearts have been broken since God called you home and we think about you every day!
I never told you how grateful I am to have you in my life. I wish I would have told you how much you meant to me while you were still here, but I think I showed you with actions. You are such a beautiful soul, full of love and laughter, we looked to you for reason and wisdom. We always had so much fun with you, some of the best times of my life. Somehow, we must live without you now, but we will be okay.
Sometimes it seems so unfair that you are not here the grief of losing you can be so overwhelming. We are trying to remember to be like you, fun, happy and carefree. I can still hear you’re voice in my head fighting with David at the dinner table and I hope your voice never goes away.
I’m so blessed to have had you as my mother in law, thank you for loving me like a daughter. I cherish our unique relationship forever and for always. I will miss our Friday dinners, no one can make food like you did. I will keep your Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition every year just like you made me promise you. I can still remember every single year you would say remember when I die it will be your turn to make Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner this is why I needed you in my kitchen every Thanksgiving eve so you can learn the way I cook.
Thank You Mrs. Viera for helping me raise Junior to be a very lovable, responsible caring young man just like his grandpa and his dad and Uncle Alex. You and I made a good team and I miss you so much. Please pray for all your family that they find God in any good and bad situation and that they never loose faith in each other. Until we meet again Senora!
I will forever Love you,
