You will be loved and remembered forever. Our beloved mother took pride in being part of a loving family. I will never forget how easily it came to her to give you a loving compliment and how she always made you smile. I will forever cherish those special moments we had. We say goodbye to our beloved mother and forever hold her in our hearts.

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1

Ahh, my dear mother. Tough loving is right on! Scoldings for me and all of my childhood friends growing up. My friends were scared of her and rightfully so. She had no problem yelling at them from across the street if she caught one of them out of line. Scoldings she was renowned for in the neighborhood, (dare I say entire community) among my friends. But as we grew into our teens and later into young adults; it became symbolic of love and great respect toward my beloved mother. My friends and I share great memories of her from growing up in the west coast; to moving here to Texas. Thank you mother for that tough-love that prepared us for the challenges of life.

Translation/Traduccion: Ahh, mi querida madre. ¡El amor firme la describe perfectamente! Regaños para mí y todos mis amigos de la infancia mientras crecía. Mis amigos le tenían miedo y con razón. No tenía ningún problema en gritarles desde el otro lado de la calle si veía a uno de ellos fuera de línea. Regaños por los que era famosa en el barrio, (me atrevo a decir en toda la comunidad) entre mis amigos. Pero a medida que nos convertimos en adolescentes y aun adultos jóvenes; se convirtió en un símbolo de amor y gran respeto hacia mi amada madre. Mis amigos y yo compartimos hermosos recuerdos de ella mientras creciamos en la costa oeste; y aun después de mudanos aquí a Texas. Gracias madre por ese amor firme que nos preparó para los desafíos de la vida.

Ms. Emma could be a character and keep the entire kitchen with a smile on their face but when it came time to work you couldn't find a harder worker at N I S D Student Nutrition. I always enjoyed working with Ms. Emma when I would fill in for the manager at the kitchen she worked in. Ms. Emma you will be missed by many.

Dear Ericka and Ramon,

This message is from your childhood friend, Arely Sanchez from South Gate, CA. My family rented your back house on Madison Ave in the 80's. I was recently visiting my parents and they had boxes of photos out that they were attempting to organize. In those photos were many with your family. Lot's of birthday parties and holidays of us as kids and our parents in their youth. It got me thinking that I should try and find you. I am so sorry that the news of your mother's passing was to appear in my attempt to search for you. My deepest condolences. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. I will inform my family of the sad news, as I am sure they will also want to offer support and their condolences. Emma was a vivacious lady and a joy to be around. I still remember her great laugh and her delicious cooking. I don't know if you ever knew this but when I was 12 years old, I called her for her Spanish rice recipe. She told me to season with Knorr Caldo de Pollo, but to be sure not to add more salt because the chicken bouillon was already salty enough. I often think about that when I am cooking today. Sending love and support to you from California.
