This family was very special to me. They helped me in my time of need. I am forever grateful to them all, especially Mabel. They took me in and treated me like a son. I am so sad to hear of their loss. Also, didn’t know about the loss of Cindy until now.

I will always remember when I was going through the years of trying to get my life in order Mabel was always talking to me asking about me and when I would go to Grand Junction to visit she always made sure that she was available to visit with me.
And always told me “ don’t be like your father”.
She will be dearly missed.

“Mabel Mabel set the table....” One of the little songs we’d sing as we ran in & out of the house on 21 & H Road slamming the doors & hear her say, “you damn kids stop slamming the doors!!” Playing outside always until way after dark with all the cousins around. One of my fondest memories is when when we went home on the bus with the Hudson kids because Aunt Mabel & my Mom Lois were canning peaches (I personally loved those because I was told by My Uncle Allen they would make my boobs grow) when we got home on the bus only to find Aunt Mabel & Mom had a few too many sips from the wine jug!! They were sitting on the floor belly laughing! I remember her trying to explain to Uncle Allen how the day took shape & where she thought things got a little messy!! It didn’t make a lot of sense but was hilarious to hear & see. I Loved her mischievous side & all the laughs & love we shared with her. I will miss you Aunt Mabel but know you are in heaven with Grandma, Grandpa Cordova, Allen & Cindy fishing!!
