To the woman who went hungry so I could eat
To the woman who was cold so I could be warm
To the woman who forgave my faults because her love was so Big
To the woman who understood me
better the I understood myself
To the Woman who showed me Faith,
Love, patience, and perseverance

My Mother

You did not live your life for you.
You lived it for God, Your husband, and you Children.
And we were fortunate and blessed to have you as our mother.
I will miss you mom, but you will always be in my heart.

Your Son David Gray

Grandma Gray,

“No fuimos hechos para el tiempo sino para la eternidad “ NJG

Dios premiará tus 61 años de perseverancia de Fe y Firmeza en la Eleccion de 3 Grandes Apóstoles.
De mi parte no puedo más que agradecerte lo que le inculcasteis a mi padre. Pues tanto mis hermanos y yo somos el resultado de esa Fe.
Always in my heart Love you Grandma 💗!

This picture holds a very special place in my heart. It was sent to me by my friend Johnny Gray. Two beautiful souls who are with our Lord. My beautiful mother, Virginia Colombo Ruffiar and her dear beautiful friend, sister "Fina," as we called her since we were kids. We share a lot of memories with the Gray family for over 30 plus years. Sister Fina you will be missed but I know you are in the Lord's arms now. You have triumphed and won the battle on earth. God bless the entire Gray family.

Grandma, you will always be my favorite person. You knew I wasn't the best with words, but please know how extremely blessed I was to have known you for the past 18 years of my life. Until we meet again in paradise, peace out girl scout.

“You may be gone from my sight, but you will never be gone from my heart. I may not be able to see your face, but I will always see your sweet smile. I may never hear your voice again, but you will forever echo in my soul.” I will always love you Grandma Today, Tomorrow, Forever and Always.

Nanita, as we used to call you, how I’ll miss you, your random singing at night and your delicious bread pudding lol but I’ll definitely miss your hugs and your smile. Say hi to my mom and brother while you’re up in the heavens ❤️ You’ll never be forgotten
