I was blessed to have known Mine through my sister Carmen Z. who was married to Mine’s brother, Enrique (may he Rest In Peace).

Mine had nothing but love and respect for my sister and my family. She always brought laughter and happiness to others.

She will be dearly missed but must importantly she will continue to bring joy to us through the wonderful memories she has left us.

May she Rest In Peace.

I don't know anyone who has the mix of humor, love, and sass that Ms. Davila had, though Esmer comes close. I have many wonderful memories of Ms. Davila but my favorite by far were when she'd FaceTime Esmer while we were out on our trips.

Cuidense. No salgan solas o muy tarde. Ana, cuida a mija.

It felt exactly like when I'd pick up Esmer at home to go out. Little did she know half the time it was Esmer saving me because I'm so bad with directions.

I will always remember your smile, warm hugs, and infectious laugh. You are very much missed and loved, Ms. Davila.

I wish I had the perfect words to explain this great loss. First and foremost my condolences go to my Tío Ponchó and my dearest cousin Esmer.

My Aunt Mine was a great Mother, Daughter, Wife, Sister, Aunt, friend and overall person. I have so many great memories of her. My Mom and Tia Mine are close in age as well as Esmer and I, so naturally we spent a lot of time together. Spending the night with them was like being in my own home, with my own mom. I recently told Esmer about a time they picked us up to go to the store. Esmer was acting a fool in the back seat so Tia Mine reached back to pinch her but pinched me instead! Lol she was real, and she showed real love to everyone she cared about, and there was a lot of us to love. Our family loves to get together and play lotería or as we call it BINGO. Some of my favorite memories is of us playing, and her talking any and all kinds of mess and especially pointing out que “no le salió ninguna en esta carta” I’d always tell her “es porque te quieren tanto tia mine”. She was always happy for her sisters when they would win the pósito! I always admired that about her. She was happy as if she had won herself.

A few things I’ll never forget about her: the way her and Esmer would always be the first ones to arrive at our get togethers. The way she was always so stylish, she loved Catherine’s and she always had the cutest sandals. Her karaoke singing was perfect. Her carne guisada was THE BEST. The hurricane Rita story at Tia Susie’s. Her monsoon birthday party at the park in clear lake. Our birthday trip to L’Auberge in Lake Charles and what she said about drinking the lazy river water (if you know, you know lol) And going to her house for her weekly Garage Sales. I loved stopping by to drop off my mom to sit and chat with her.

I’ll especially never forget the way she made us all feel loved and I’ll never forget the love we all have for her. My Tia Mine was truly one of a kind, I’m going to miss her so very much.

I only got to meet this wonderful woman once. I'm from Australia, and had flown into Houston to spend time with a friend (Cristal). Through Cristal, I met Esmer and Mrs. Davila. Mrs. Davila was very kind and sweet to me, and she was horrified that I was staying in a hostel. She promised me the next time I came down that I was more than welcome to stay with her for free. I was very touched at her generosity, seeing as I was more or less a complete stranger.

I'm sorry I never got to take you up on that offer, Mrs. Davila. May you rest in peace.

When I first met Esmer’s mom. She was super sweet and kind to me. Over the years, I started to see where Esmer got that smart mouth of her’s which made me laugh and laugh. But my favorite is when we went to go watch a Dynamo game and we had to turn on a street called Pierre. Mrs. Davila had a hardest time saying it and I laughed, she looked at me and asked why I was laughing at her! Ahaha, I’m going to miss the sassy kind lady she was. Much love and Rest In Peace
