My dearest sister Rosie, God blessed me and enriched my life with you as my mentor and role model. I will miss our weekly phone conversations and our Prayers on Sundays. You were so special to me and will remain in my heart until we meet again. I love you beyond the stars.

My dearest Tia Rosie,
To say that I adored you would be an understatement. Your demeanor and authentic character are some wonderful attributes I will always admire about you. The memories I have of you and Tio I will cherish for the rest of my life. I cannot express how much I will truly miss you. Rest in peace my beautiful Auntie. Till we meet again. Your niece, Greta

I remember the last time I visited Tio Ramiro and Tia Edna in Hebbronville. It was after my father (Rene Garza) had passed away. My Dad had a military picture of Tio Robert Garza in a special frame and I took it to them to keep. I have fond memories of Hebbronville as a child when the Tios and Tias would get together at that corner house where my grandparents lived. We ate watermelon and picked the oranges from our grandparents tree. Life and time separated us especially when me and my husband moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and then my parents followed us a year later. We lived up there for 33 years; both my parents passed away up there and then in 2015 Steve and I moved back to Corpus Christi. I often thought of making a visit to Hebbronville to visit my Tio and Tia but just never made it. It saddens me that I did not. Cynthia Garza Jaquez

Tia Rosie, there are too many things to love about you, to be able to shrink it down into a few words. But here are just a few things about you. I will always remember your cooking, especially your macaroni salad! You were always so kind, patient, and loving as we ran around your home, just being kids and playing--and you just let us do it with a smile on your face. I imagine you're reunited with your love Tio Ramiro, and I hope you guys are singing and dancing amongst the angels in heaven. I love you always. May you rest on peace.
- Love, your niece Rachel
