Good afternoon/evening all,
My name is Denise Martinez, I am Silvia’s youngest daughter. Where do I start? My mother was the happiest soul I have ever met or encountered. NOBODY will ever replace her. Not just because she was my mother, but because she was very unique. Her smile would light up the room and her laughter would make you laugh! She was such a jokester! One memory I have with mami, is that she knew I was super ticklish and so I’d lay with her and she would tickle me. I was already 21! I layed next to her a night before my wedding and she played tickle fight with me one more time. Oh, with her knocks at the door you’d know it was her. If not, ask my cousin Yaya every time we’d go visit, or anyone who had a peep hole, you’d know shed cover it after knocking! She was loud, she was ferocious with her family, humble, loving, joyful; and amongst many good things-- definitely a beauty. Her children and her grandkids were her prize possession; not once did that idea slide. Until her last breath she fought; until her last breath she loved; until her last breath she gave it all. There is just not enough words to express how beautiful her soul was. God showed off when He blessed me and my children with a woman like her. Mami, you leave an immense void in me that I trust only the Lord can fill. Mi major amiga, Mi reina, mi chaparrita de oro. You know? There’re many things that I have learned from her, and one was the unconditional love she had for her family. She didn’t care how many times she was disrespected, looked down at, or simply given a cold shoulder. If she ever told you she loved you, it was genuinely. My mother was transparent and ALWAYS taught us to be that way. The peace and comfort I feel comes from knowing that one day we will meet again mami. So this isn’t a goodbye. This is a farewell—an “I’ll see you later”
