Aurora, I just wanted to say what a wonderful woman you were here on Earth...I'm positive that you're in heaven dining at the right arm of Jesus. My daughter Jacquie has been blessed with you as her "other mother". You have raised wonderful children that have done a great job of taking care of you when you needed them to. They can only know that kind of loving care because you taught them well. Rest easy knowing that they will forever carry your love and memories. Thank you for being a wonderful woman, loving mother, and friend to so many. Your legacy lives on and you are finally free from your earthly pain and suffering.💜

Aurora was my mother in law. I remember the first time I met her. It was Chris's and my second date. We went to Lina's house for menudo. She told me to sit down next to her, I didn't want to, but ended up sitting next to her. She asked me 20 questions. I answered her questions. I don't remember the questions, but I do remember 10 yrs later that she was so easy to talk to.
Fast forward 10 yrs later we moved in with her to help take care of her while she recovered from hip surgery. We bonded over crocheting. Although my granny taught me how to chrochet. Mom taught me how to read a pattern. We knew she needed to walk so I tricked mom into going to Hobby Lobby or walmart to get more yarn. We would show each other our projects and sorta compete on who would get done with their project first. Before mom got too bad I showed mom my last 2 projects that I finished. I'm going to miss our talks that we would have, miss telling mom "hi honey I'm home" when I got off work.
Mom gave me the strength that she knew I had to take care of her. I love you more than words mom. Until we see you soon 😘😘😘😘😘

Aurora was my sister in law and although she was technically my ex sister in law, I never seen her like that. She has always been my sister in law. And with out a doubt the best sister in law. I can not remember a time when she ever showed any anger towards any of my family. She was always so kind to me and all of my brothers and sisters. She was always so positive. Have u ever heard of a daughter in law not ever having any issues with her
mother-in-law She was that person. she always showed so much love to my mom. I can remember she would take me to the park when my brother Lino and her we’re dating so I can play with fathead Felix. I must have been 6 or 7 years old and her sister Helen would also be there.
She loved to sing along at family gatherings. And her favorite lyric was 🎼🎤AAAAAOOOOOGA....
Aurora I love u very much and thank u for all your love memories u showed me while I was growing up .
You are about to embark on your next chapter in your life in ur celestial world with god .
Marcos Lopez your brother in law for ever .

Mom,

I started missing you before you left, your illness taking over. I kept reminding you that you were more than a body, a beautiful spirit who had to be set free. Words can not express how much I am going to miss you.
