My lil sis,
I miss you so much even if it seems like I don't and pretend to be strong 😢.. I wanna tell you how much it hurts to walk in the house and not seeing you there, even thought I see your ashes I wanna pretend and believe you're just out somewhere maybe the casino your favorite place and will come home soon. Thank you sis for the moments we spent together, the talks we had and most of all for the love you gave us. I treasure every minute spent with you and will forever lock it in my heart. Maybe I wasn't there enough but you know I would give my life for all of you. If I could only hug you and tell you how much I love you 😭😭. Forever be in heart and your memories never forgotten. I will miss you forever lil sis.. SPREAD YOUR WINGS AND FLY AWAY MY BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY 🦋

Titi Maria,
I love you so much and it hurts that you aren't here anymore. I know I never got to see you as much but whenever I did I would always get happy. I remember so many memories with you and I wish we could still make more. I love you with all my heart ❤️ Since you've been gone I've seen so many butterflies and they make me smile because I feel like it's you watching over me and everyone. We all miss you and love you so much.
Katelyn 💕

Where do I start, Mary you were a fresh breath of air to our family, you were just what I prayed for to come into Tommy and the boys life, you were the Mom they wanted and needed, you brought joy n happiness into their life's, you will forever hold a special place in our hearts, we love you, and we miss you. I will continue to look up at the Moon at night with Chucky, because he says that that's where you sit, on top of the moon... We will meet again, and we can carry on with our crazy conversations about ally cats n monkey midgets... Thank you girl...

My memories with you are so many but I have one that sits in the back my head like it was yesterday. When we went to Tijuana, Mexico for your brother Carlos R.I.P birthday. That night was phenomenal the memory I share with you on that night I will carry with me forever. Everything from that night, from the limo service to the club to the drinks to the wonderful music and the delicious breakfast you cooked for me the next day was amazing. I love you Maria more then words could ever say you touched my heart my soul you will never be forgotten you will always have un cachito de mi corazon. Te Amo mi Wacky you will forever be missed. I thank the Lord that he gave me the opportunity to be a part of your life and to share so many memories with you. Rest In Peace Maria
