I love you grama very much. I will forever cherish all those times you would teach me how to make megas (eggs mixed with tortilla) and the millions of times you would always cook them for me. I am glad I will be able to teach my kids this now and they will teach there kids and so your memory will forever be there.

I already miss you so much, but I know you are finally in a better place in heaven.

Love your great grandson, Nathaniel Gonzales

This was our Queen. She was on this Earth for 91 years, and I had her for 43 years. There isn't enough words to express my pain that I am feeling, but I am overjoyed knowing that she is with God and my grampa Manuel.

Grama, every ounce of my heart&soul misses you, but I find comfort knowing that you are with God... <3

Tell my Dad that I love & miss him.....
I will see you soon.

I love you Grama
