Mom,
As the days pass it is not any easier. You touched many lives, you kept your promise, you’re still watching over those you loved. I remember talking to you about your grandma - as you would call her - you told me that you would still watch Bridget for her. Mom, your love for others always inspired me. I am still waiting for us to talk and discuss how your morning was going and what you had fed “la niña”, your kind words for those you loved. I know you’re not in pain no more, seeing you cry was the worst feeling, you are in heaven walking along a garden looking down while you smile. Be proud Mom- I love you. I will watch over the kids, my sisters and Dad for you. Stop by and say “hi”, I’ll be waiting for you Mom. You are my best friend, btw Mom, you were right, I will not take the job offer and stay with Pennymac a little longer. You are still guiding me and like I always told you Mom- te lo agradezco mucho por escuchar mis problemas.

Margarita, I cannot express how much comfort you gave me, knowing the Bridgie would be loved a cared for. Your dedication to her and my mom gave my family and I peace. I thank your family for sharing you with us and allowing you to always be there for us. You truly were an angel on earth and I know you will continue to watch over Bridgie, never giving up you pledge to love and care for her. Thank you.

Margarita...........you made such a difference in the lives of my mother in law, Cecelia and sister in law, Bridget. Your loving care of them was so appreciated. Your warm and beautiful smile when any of us kids came through the door to visit will so be missed. Bridget felt so safe and was so calm when you were with her. I know she misses you so very much. Thank you for your extreme patience and kindness to Momma Cecelia who could be quite a challenge. She very much loved and respected you. Thank you for always remembering that my youngest son loved tamales and you always brought some for my husband to bring home to him. Heaven has received an angel, you!!!Our heavenly Father knows of your hard work and good deeds on earth. We will all miss you but we will all be together again.

Margarita..
I miss you.. I never had the chance to thank you for the amazing example of integrity and discipline you lived..
You cared for Bridgy with compassion and as if she were your flesh and blood.. a loyalty not seen in this world especially in relation to work..
I am honored to see how that extended into the lives of your children and grandchildren..
they are as precious and full of your heart’s love and pride..
I pray God comfort your loved ones anytime their hearts ache..
by Gods glorious grace you were a gift to us...
