She was loved by her residents and coworkers. Rosa, also known as Rosy, Guera, or Chayito to some, loved being in the kitchen where she would prepare home cooked meals and baked goods for her family. Often she made up her own recipes as she went. Rosa had a heart of gold and loved all people.

It's so hard to pick a favorite memory because there was never a dull moment when I was with you. However, new years night with a half drunken champagne glass and all the single ladies on in the background is one that is on constant repeat! Thanks for always being open to talk to, even if it was just to listen. You really got me through a lot. I love and miss you tiá Rosy

Tia, Thank you for being a great role model for our family. You were a pillar of strength and courage. You fiercely loved your family. You made amazing cakes :)
Thank you for having such a stable loving marriage. It helped me to believe that real love was possible. Thank you for watching after me when I was little. I hate that I hadn't seen you in such a long while, but I am comforted in knowing you know I love you. It's not good bye, it's see ya later. Rest in Peace

Dang Tia crazy how time Flys, I could remember being at your house with your birds chirping, door knocking, phone ringing and us waiting for quiti to get out of school and us just guessing
at the Jeopardy show silently focusing in and everything out. I still hug the couch like its nap time 20 years ago.. Im thankful You took care of my brothers, chippy and I for the troubles we were. I'm about to have my first child and you named me, my first thought, I was going to do the same if I have a girl and its hurts you left to soon to find out. I miss you, you're part of my soul. Like grandpa ill always have a piece of you<3

I love you tia,
Thank you for the identity that you gave me. You saved me from a lifetime of being known as "Mayelito." You took care of me when I was little. You helped shape the man that I am today. I will always carry you in my heart and in my memories.

Until we meet again

Your loving nephew,
