One funny and scary memory I will never forget, is that Bibi and myself was sneaking in late and we both got busted by Dona Cordero. So we never heard the end of it and then she brought me home to my parents and you know what happened after that. But never will I forget that moment. Dona Cordero was my secondary mother, so was every other elder that was our neighbors. We as young kids had to give the adults the respect they deserved. Dona Cordero was a sweetheart, she's gonna be missed. My condolences to the Corderos. Y que descanze en Paz Dona Cordero, 🙏😇 another angel watching over us.

My heart and prayers go out to Awilda and her whole family. It was a great honor and pleasure to know her mom and her dad. All of their children should be very proud of how you did everything possible to make your parents feel comfortable , happy and loved. Mr. & Mrs. Cordero are in peace and by each other’s side looking over at their beautiful loving family they created and being with each other once again to continue their journey. ❤️🙏

Tia was always the life of the party, always dancing and making jokes. Not a day goes by where my kids don't remember her asking if she slept with them the night before if they didn't give her a kiss right away when they saw her. She was an amazing godmother to Steven. She will be greatly missed. Always loved and never forgotten.
We love and will miss you Tia

Grandma what could I say about you besides that you was my 2nd mother. You raised me and my brother. You showed me right from wrong, You taught me to be independent and not to want for anything. I’m so gonna miss you so much. Say hi to mommy and grandpa. You will never be forgotten. Sleep in heavenly peace my dear sweet Grandma.
