I will always remember my Aunt, with flowers in her hair and whatever she was wearing (shoes, clothes, jewelry) they somehow matched.
She will be missed by family and friends.
Rest in Peace

The day we are a family reunion in McAllen at the Veterans hall. I had the pleasure of sitting next to her briefly and asked Margarite, you must be very proud of your family. She replied.. I am she said..
Looking at my brother and her daughter. Her eyes shined like a star that night. She continued to enjoy the music surrounded by her family.
May you rest in peace.
