Cousin Chayo,

When we reflect on this great truth, we can come to realize that those we love who have gone before us, marked with the sign of faith, have not been separated from us. They are really much closer to us because they now live fullness of God's love, a love that embraces each one of us, whether here on earth or in the heavenly kingdom. It is in this divine love that we are truly united, to God, but to each other. I will miss your hugs, your smile, your voice. Rest in peace.

We are immensely sad to learn of your leaving us. Ours words cannot describe the intensity of that emotion. We will miss your beautiful smile and generous spirit, but we take comfort in knowing that you are now at peace with our Heavenly Father and we pray that you’ll watch over those loved ones you’ve left behind, especially Sabino and your kids and grandkids. We pray that those of us left behind can find comfort that you are with God and in the memory of having known and loved you.

Dear, Dear Chayo,
You have passed through "las pearly gates de heaven" into your heavenly home. I wonder if your "paloma angel" came and took you by the hand to lead you there. Your passing has left a hole in our hearts as wide as the whole world. We loved you in life.... We will continue to love you and hold the memories we have of you in our hearts. Sunday breakfasts and Fish Fry dinners just won't be the same without you.

We love you and are missing you already,
Bob and Chatty Patty

Tia Chayo, a Tia to so many! I remember hanging out at your apartment. I remember you and Tio taking me to visit Mama Mona. I remember you taking me to KMart and buying me Icee and popcorn. I remember you letting me eat all the candy I wanted. I remember so many celebrations in your home. You were there for my entire life. It's going to be so odd not seeing you anymore. The last day I saw you I told you we were planning to move. You were sad because you wouldn't see my boys anymore. And that made me sad. The only comfort I get from your death is knowing that you will not only see my boys grow old but watch over them and protect them.

I miss you,

My Beautiful Sister,
You'll never know how much we'll miss you! That is the song that will always remind me of you. You were my rock, my confidant, the wind beneath my wings and my best friend. I thank God for having put you in my life. Thank you for leaving us such wonderful memories that we shared with you! I love you and will miss you for the rest of my life. I know you are happy now, and in a better place with our Lord.
Thank you for everything! Until we meet again.

Your Mola
