My Aunt Elva came over to visit and brought pan dulce and of course her cigarettes. My mother agreed to have my ears pierced. My Aunt got a needle and thread and I layed my head on her laps and Done it. See advised me how to take care to prevent infection. She was a sweet lady. I was 10 yrs old.

To many memories to just pick one. Mom was caring, loving and funny. I'll miss you being with us when making tamales.
I woke up this morning thinking I had to get ready like usual before I would go to your room and wake you up. But I realized your not here with me. 😢You've gone home with Jesus. No more suffering nor pain. Miss and love you Mom. RIP 💖😢🙏. Your gone but you will never be forgotten.

Well where to start memories there are so many to choose from. Being the oldest of the grandchildren there was a lot.She was amazing woman. She loved her church practically always there. She loved her husband and family very much. The little things meant a lot . I remember as young man many years ago end of year of school every year she’d have a end of school party for kids.When I became alter boy she was very proud and happy. She always did for and for all of us. Couldn’t ask for greater grandmother. She will always be loved and missed 😭
