Samantha Sierras

Hi my name is Samantha Sierras and I am Grandma’s youngest grandchild. Since the day I was born, which was about 16 years ago, Grandma has always been right by my side. After 25 years of helping run my Tia Sylvia’s wig shop she retired so that she could take care of my brother and I. Even though home was her favorite place, for the next 10 years she would come to our house Monday morning and stay until Friday afternoon, only being home on the weekends. This is one of the many sacrifices she made for our family and it truly shows how selfless she was. When I started preschool, for those 2 days a week that I went she would put everything aside and sit outside on a bench for the 2 hours so that I would feel safe and not cry. She loved her family deeply and would help anyone and everyone. She taught us all many lessons like go to the bathroom before you leave and ALWAYS bring a sweater. She worried greatly and thought everything was dangerous probably due to her dateline and 20/20 shows. She also was a good listener and listened attentively to all my Dad’s long stories and let me tell you there was a lot! She was my number 1 supporter and biggest fan and she never missed one cheer competition. Hardworking, strong, beautiful, independent, and compassionate are just a few words that describe her. My Grandma was truly my everything and I aspire to be like her. Never did I imagine that she would not be here for the soon to come parts of my life like my 16th birthday, my license, and to see me graduate. I have no idea what i am going to do without my grandma but this moment is bittersweet because shes finally getting the rest she deserves. Grandma, this isnt a goodbye it’s simply a see you later until we meet again. I love you more than you know and thank you for everything.

Thank you Grandma, for all the beautiful memories. It truly feels unreal to me that you are not here with us, but I know that you are in Heaven and that gives me a lot of peace. Thank you for all your support throughout our life during difficult and happy times.

After David and I got married, we were planning to rent an apartment. We already had the apartment we were going to move in to, but everything changed so quick. You open your house to us because you told us, you wanted us to save money and buy a house. Exactly a year after, David and I were able to save and we bought our first home.

I will never forget when we got back from our honeymoon, you had the room ready for us and you even dyed your white curtains blue, so that they matched our new comforter.

Everything you did for all of us, you did with Love.

Thank you Grandma, we are truly thankful to God for blessing us with a Grandma like you. We will miss you so much.

The last time we talked to you, you said you Loved all of us so, so, so, much,
We Love you just as much and much, much....more. Until we see you again.

Forever Love,
David and Socorro Ramirez
