U loved us unconditionally, I only wish as I grew up we stayed as close as it was. With my struggles growing up I wasn't ready for what God put me through. But u always believed in God and going to church. I wish I would of went all the times u asked me go as a kid. As I am a man now and God has showed me the struggles that I am facing,my forever wish is to put our family close together I want to remember u as the happy grandma in the kitchen house smelling like tamales and on Christmas time house decorated so beautiful, and walking through your house with pictures of the family u love.

To my beautiful Sister Gloria,
Words cannot express the sorrow and pain I feel right now but I’m comforted in knowing you are no longer in pain, no longer suffering and now with our dear savior and Lord Jesus Christ. I’ll always remember how as a kid I would get to spend my weekends at your house. Oh how I always looked forward to those weekends! You bought me my first bike then later that afternoon we all ate at Wyatt’s Cafeteria. You always inspired me to follow my dreams. I’m forever grateful. You raised a beautiful family.
Sister, I will forever miss you! The fond memories will live on forever in my heart. We had so many. Please say, Hello! to our brother Richard. Tell him I miss him dearly.
Love you forever my beautiful Sister Gloria...

Words cannot express the pain of losing you, it leaves a void in my heart, no one can fill. However, you raised me to be strong, just like you. My hope and mission in life is to make you proud & honor your memory.
Because you loved me - Celine Dion
For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through through it all
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'cause you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me
You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you....
I love you always & forever. You will be missed every single day of my life.
