My condolences to my family on the passing of a wonderful beautiful lady. I’m going to miss you my cousin I love you so much and I remember going to your house with my late brother James and my late Vavo Isabel when I was a little boy to visit you and your mother my Tia Rosa. You always welcomed us with open arms, hugs and lots of kisses. You have a great heart and soul you are a loving beautiful lady who had lots of love to share. You was a great wife, mother, sister, grandmother and cousin. Now you are at peace and the family and God is waiting for you with open arms to welcome you into Heaven. I am so sad and heartbroken that I won’t see you on this Earth but I have my memories of you and I know you’ll be waiting for me with open arms of hugs and kisses when I enter God’s kingdom.
I love you so much my beautiful loving prima and I’m going to miss you.
