I have always loved how Abulea grounded everyone that came within her reach. I am blessed to have known you, Abuela, though you are grandmother only to a few, that is the only name I know you by and was fortunate to get to know you. May you fly high and I will always remember.

Words are so difficult to express at this moment. The emotions that build up inside of me as I process this loss of my beautiful Aunt Itdolidia leave me speechless. Difficult to accept that she is gone, that I will not ever hear her soft sweet voice that embraced you along with her exceptional loving spirit. Her smile, her laugh that could light up a room. Her amazing passion for what mattered to her in such a graceful manner. That is what stands out the most in my mind about my Aunt Itdolidia, her “grace”. What a lady, what a woman. As diversified as she was in her passions; strong spiritual faith, amazing wife , mother and grandmother, always there for her family, great cook, Yankee fan, Ranger fan, pet caregiver, her health; (i.e., walks) , Atlantic City………my Aunt Itdolidia always had a disposition of kindness and courtesy. She always dressed with such class, looking attractive, and such poise. Her spirit radiated peace, love, joy, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, patience, gentleness, and self control. She radiated all the "fruits of the spirit", Galatians 5:22-23, “against such things are not laws”, she was a true example of what God calls us to be. I have such peace knowing that she is in the Kingdom of God. No doubt in my mind. The void in my heart will remain until I am blessed to see her again. What will stay with me is what she taught me thru what she exemplified, the gifts of her spirit that she shared and gave me, and the memories that are truly treasures. (One evening in particular that I spent the night with her while I was in business in NY-back in 2001-I had her all to myself!). I was so blessed to have been given the honor to have had this woman in my earthly life. My heart aches and goes out to all my family but especially to my cousins, Mari, Jackie, Maritza, and Helen……..I will pray for peace for all of you during this difficult time. It is important to stay focused on what she exemplified and to maintain that legacy, for that is what she would want for all of you, for all of us, for everyone she met. How could it not be a tremendous loss, she was an amazing woman,not many like her, and smiling to the very end! No doubt she has her wings and is flying now …….
God bless, with love, your cousin Monica.
PS- Mari, your friend Emily Kirsch is right, the ocean is a great healer,we are 5 miles away from the ocean and we are open to receive all of you as well. Please come. xo

Dear Maria,I wish you healing from your great loss. On seeing your mother's picture, it is amazing how much I can see of her in you. Your love and compassion for her comes through strongly in the tribute you wrote on the Alzheimers site, and I know how well you cared for her in her in her last years. You made them, and especially her last days, easier for her, and I'm sure she loved you and appreciated very much that you were there at the end. Much love and hugs,

My beloved Abuela, this morning when I woke up I was hoping your passing was just an awful dream, but when I felt the emptiness inside, I realized you were really gone. There is still so much I have to tell you, so much gratitude I need to show you, and so much love I want to give to you. I feel cheated, I did not have enough time with you. I miss you so much. Tomorrow we will lay you to rest. You will have Abuelo by your side, along with your mother and father, brothers and sisters, and Misty and Cathy. It will be extremely hard to say goodbye to you but I know that you will give me all the strength I will need to get through it. I love you, Abuela. You will never be forgotten.
