My dearest Grandma, it's with a heavy heart I write this message. I will forever cherish our memories together. From the family Christmas's making tamales. You would always sneak in some masa when no one was looking. To the bbq's, grilling your favorite costillas.
You taught us so much with your loving heart. You always put others before yourself. You would always ask "Is everyone ok". Yes grandma, we're ok knowing your at peace with our dear lord and family. I love you and miss you.

Mom received me into her home and heart on December of 1972. She was very attentive to me and we enjoyed our time together. I remember her as a great homemaker... a very clean house and delicious meals. After I learned how to drive in the "big city" we would take rides and venture out in our convertible! Oh! and One of the places she wanted us to go to was to the Copper Penny, a hamburger place on Shepherd. Mom and I sent loving greetings to each other throughout the years. And later years through Tony. Thank you, Tony! She holds a special place in my heart and memory!
Love you Mom💓!
