I love you, grandma, I remember when we used to go to fiesta, you bought donuts for me. You have protected me and loved me, and didn’t care that I didn’t speak Spanish. You are my angle and my best friend. I miss you terribly, but we will be together one day.

You are a queen. Mi Reina de Mexico, the queen of the Aztecs. May you reign forever.

You were just so kind and sweet. I can still hear you laugh.

I remember when we traveled through Mexico to see places like Mexico City when I was Very young. I loved those memories and how you were so very loving. We will miss you dearly.

Best mother-in-law ever! I won't forget you - you could always find the humor in life. Gabby gets her humor from you...
