Mary - words can not paint the picture of the great sadness I have in my heart daily for the loss of you and my brother, Eddie, but it was meant to be. I am forever grateful for the unselfish love you showed towards Eddie and the conversations we had these last few months because I saw the jewel of a person you were. There is so much left to talk about, but now I just lock them up in my heart! My only regret is that I didn't know you sooner because I saw your beauty these last months through your encouragement and love towards me. I will see you again one day!

MariaJose, that is the name I have always called you. TO me you were a BEAUTIFUL SOUL! I Had The pleasure of speaking to you two weeks prior to this horrible incident. And our conversation were always respectful between you and me. I ALWAYS FELT LOVE FROM YOU TOWARDS ME. I am so SAD you have left us, but your in a better place with your love ones. You have been that SPECIAL AUNT to all your nieces and nephews. I know they miss you the most!!. And of course your mom...her heart is very broken. Me having 4 kids ALL my BABIES . I could not even imagine the pain to lose even one of them. As parents the rule of nature IS OUR CHILDREN BURY US NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND. R.I.P MARIAJOSE!! WE WILL ONE DAY SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN!

My Dearest Memory of Mary ,
I have so many of them . I play them in my mind everynight . I remeber how we first bumped heads . We got over it . We became convient for eachother , and after spending so much time around eachother we became FRiENDS . We were there for eachother . She would always stand up for me , she would talk sense to me . When i was down and very upset only her words would change my mind . She was the only person who went to visit me in the hospital . I remeber so many memories its hard to pick one . But i remeber her face that she would make when id say something silly , her words she'd use , her laugh her voice . One thing i remember is her love for her mother , how she adores her mom . It was beautiful . The way she wanted to give her mom all , everything , except make her mad or dissapiont her . She became to be a Major part of my life . And my kids also . I dont have any words that can explain how i feel and how much i miss her . My heart is missing and a part if me is gone, but i thanks god that he gave me a precious friend i will never forget.

A thousand words won’t bring you back so I guess we’re left with just memories of you which is just not enough to fill the void in our hearts 💔 you accepted me into your life with open arms and made sure I was well taken care of and I always had everything I needed you never failed to always come through when I needed you the most 💜 I trusted you with everything and you never let me down I’m so grateful to have been apart of your life and to have shared so many great times with you . What an amazing human being you were ... it’s not fair the way things happened but I know you are in peace and everlasting happiness with our father and Eddie 😓 I love you guys so much it’s never going to be the same you not being here .. thank you so much for everything 💜💜💜you’ve taught me so much and opened my eyes to things I was once blind to. I can’t wait till the day comes where we meet again 💞
Forever and always in my heart and my mind 🌬
Love , Jay
