Lupe, was a co-worker but more than that she was a friend. She had patience and pose. She was always happy to listen, she gave advice by letting me answer my own questions. She so loved every child we worked with. I first saw her share that love with my daughter as her teacher and when I came to work at the preschool was touched by her myself. In recent years we became closer working in the same classroom. She taught me card games to take home and play with my children. When Mayflower served peanut butter pie she’d bring me a slice the next morning for breakfast. She brought me small gifts from California; a pen, a spoon. They were the littlest of things and not costly but I always knew she was thinking of me and that touched my heart. Her hard work was motivation for myself. Many mornings I would start to drag my feet and then remember Lupe is already at work. At night if I climbed into bed early, I’d remember Lupe is just driving home from work. She was and will forever be in my prayers. Lupe and I both shared our faith quietly. It is with that faith I know she is at peace.

I am Lupe's little brother. I'm glad I had many opportunities to visit you and your family out in Hyannis Ma. I recall last year going out there for your birthday .It meant a lot to me and something I will never forget. Sadly I just got home from your services yesterday out in Boston,Hyannis area. You gave me a tour of Boston, and other historic places. Fenway park,Paul Revere museum, New England patriots, stadium, Cape cod. Etc. As well many east coast restaurants. I will miss you . And if your kids need anything I will do whatever I can to help them. I was glad I was able to visit your home this week, to recall memories staying there.

Sending you my deepest sympathy for your loss. I knew Lupe when working at Centerville Elementary School. Our sons, Dave and Brian, were high school friends and classmates.
What I remember most about Lupe was her smile. I could see that she was dedicated to her students and a beloved coworker. She demonstrated such patience and kindness. May Lupe rest in eternal peace ~

Lupe will be in everyone's hearts and minds every day for all who knew her. We shared many fun times of gatherings and teaching moments. Sorry I had a lot to say I couldn't just fit it on one page of such an amazing person. Eventhough we had lost touch due to my depression I will never forget all the great times we shared and how she was always their for everyone and made people laugh . Her smile was infectious and it showed when she talked of her family who she loved dearly. Her friends and colleagues meant a lot to her as well and that showed in her heart. I will never forget our fun times together and will think of her every day. Love u my sister, love , vicki

MY condolences go out to the family of such a beautiful woman Lupe. She was such a bright shinning light in many peoples lives and no matter what always had an amazing way of making you feel special or making you feel better if you were down. She always could make you laugh and turn the most negative of situations into a positive somehow . Lupe was one of my best of friends a colleague ' a sister. I remember so many good times with her and her family especially teaching with her was the best! When I first met Lupe in a classroom we became instant friends always laughing together and having the best of times teaching together! She and I were very close for years and would talk about everything ' sometimes on the phone after work till the wee hours of the morning! We would go out to dinner and have great times together with just us or our other coworkers but no matter what we did or who we were with it was always fun! She could always turn a grey sky blue and could pull you out of the darkest of situations with a positive or say something funny to get you out of a funk or bad day! Lupe was a great listener and the best friend you could ever have. I knew her over 20 years and when anyone was feeling sad or having a hard time she would be their for them no matter when or what time it was. Lupe even would put her problems on hold to help others and was never selfish. She was a very compassionate person and a wonderful teacher ' everyone who knew her or met her loved her' she had no enemies! Lupe and I had a lot of laughs and often said to each other it was as if we knew each other our whole lives because we had our own language and would just look at each other and know what the other was thinking or if the person was hurting and then when we talked it out we would be all good again. Lupe was close to my family as well and came to many family event's and I hers. She will be dearly missed !

I hope that Lupe’s family can find comfort in knowing that she gently touched the lives of all who knew her in her own special way. The work she did every day at the Enoch Cobb Learning Center helped so many young children grow and learn. When I think of Lupe, I see her patiently listening to and talking with preschoolers. With a smile on her face, I see her teaching them by helping and encouraging them to accomplish all types of tasks. I see her in the classroom, sitting at the table while they learned to write their name, count objects, or cut with scissors. I see her zipping up coats and putting mittens on little hands. I see her standing on the playground watching them run and play. I see her holding small hands as she walked them down the hallway at the end of the school day. I also see her wiping away a child’s tears and giving a hug whenever it was needed. Although many of her students will be too young to remember Lupe in the years ahead, the adults who knew her always will. Rest in Peace Lupe.

My dear little sweet sister, I am going to miss your sweet smile an miss our summers together we always enjoyed your visits we wonder what game is Lupe going to show us this time. You’d bring your big bag with you an introduced us with new fun cards games we would stay up till 1:00am playing cards those were fun times an when we went to Puerta Vallerta in October you made sure I packed the card games reminding me don’t forget the games. We had such a good time there you were so happy that Veronica an Patricia were there an Frannie an Ray an Carlos an yadi an Antonio was there . You enjoyed sitting at the beach for the day ordering drinks an ordering lunch going into the water. Then we would come back to the room an go into the Jacuzzi on our balcony then of course playing cards I don’t know how many times you thank me for the vacation but it was a family effort we all chipped in from getting your passport to getting your flights we would do it all over again. But we are thankful we got to spend our mini vacation with you . We are going to miss you dearly I love you Lupita my dear sweet little sister hugs an kisses
