I got to know Ernestina since I was a young girl, I remember her and her sisters coming to visit us in Los Angeles. Every time they visited she would bring us lots of delicious fruit and other treats from Fresno. She loved to dance and would come join in the various occasions that were celebrated. Most recently, she loved coming to visit and of course if there was an opportunity, go to the Casino. I know she had lots of luck in the slot machines and she would try to teach my mom the tricks of the trade. Her last visit was in August of this year, we are so blessed that in this casual visit we got to see her one last time, now that I think about it, it was almost like her coming to say goodbye. We will miss her dearly but she will always be alive in our hearts and through all the wonderful memories we shared. Hasta luego Ernestina:)

Although she was a couple of years older I always enjoyed hanging around with Ernestina. I loved it when we would go to visit the rancho but I was ecstatic when I learned they were moving to Fresno! It was nice growing up with her for those few years. She's a beautiful person inside & out with a sweet & caring soul. I will forever love & miss you prima.

As Dora's daughter, I was always with my mom when she'd spend her time with my tia Tina so I'm grateful for all the wonderful memories. I remember as a kid she'd pull me aside from playing to show me how to hand wash my clothes so I could help my mom at home, she taught me how to crochet, and she taught me the importance of giving. I didn't realize that she was teaching me essentials of life until I was older. Since I was a child I've always wanted to be alongside her to learn how to cook but knowing my tia, you knew she didn't want help. When I was around seven or eight she allowed my mom and I to help with making her famous tamales; it only lasted a few minutes because she kicked us out of her kitchen. We put "too little masa." That was the only time I was able to really help but I'll always cherish that day.
I'll miss all the times my mom and tia would be laughing so hard in our kitchen, her spending the night, road trips, going shopping together, going to the casino and just being able to help her with everyday things. There'd be times I'd get out of my night class and I'd wonder why my mom wasn't home yet and then the thought came to me, "oh, she's at the casino with my tia again!" Leah was also very close to her, somehow they instantly bonded to each other and I could see my tia's characteristics in her. Leah is also generous, loving, loves money and dances all the time. Leah loved her tia as much as my tia loved her. My tia Tina was the strongest, loving, and most generous person I ever knew. She was the basis of our family. I wish life would've been different so Leah could grow up with her tia Tina but God already had plan written for her to go home on October 20th, 2018 so she could rest in peace.
Tia Tina, you'll always live through our stories and our hearts. Te amo mucho.

My Godmother Tina was a wonderful, joyful, giving women whom I will sincerely miss. It gives me great pleasure to have so many fond memories of her. Those memories I will cherish forever. I am grateful to my cousins Dora, Sylvia, Anna, Abel, and to my uncle Pule for sharing my Nina with me, particularly with my mom. Those two Comadres love hanging out at the casino and traveling to Mexico together.
Rest In Peace Nina. You’ll live forever in the hearts of many.

Tina worked for our family for over 30 years. She was a very special lady and a very hard worker. She never complained. She always had a kind word
to say when we would pass in the plant. We will all miss her very much. We love you Tina!!

My heart is broken for your loss... Tina was such a kind person, taking care of others before herself.. I remember about her always being dressed up in her heels even at home!! And how she could sew or crochet anything... I will miss seeing her at the swap meet when I come to town. Lets remember that we have another angel watching over us... Love you Pichardo girls!
