Andy, I can't imagine how you feel. I am so sorry. I'm glad I had the chance to meet your mom. She is a fiesty one, I'll say, and very funny at times. We had many laughs. God Bless you and your sons.

I don't think there is enough space here to write about what a wonderful woman Ascencion was. She was a woman who put the needs of her loved ones far above her own and never thought twice about it. She raised a good son when all the odds were stacked against her and her unconditional love that help mold her two grandsons will be forever seen in them as they grow. There is no way to give enough thanks to her for all that she has done and all the ways she has imapcted the lives of the ones she loved.
In Loving Memory,
