Mom...Thank You for all the love that you gave to our family. It was an honor to care for you after losing dad. I know that the Lord kept you with me to help me through the hardest days of my life. Losing Memo (Joey) has broken my heart in a thousand pieces. If I hadn’t had you to care for, I don’t think I would have wanted to get out of bed to continue on living. I knew that I had to get up and continue to take care of you. You gave me the strength to continue living and for me to continue caring about my life. I will forever continue to live life to the fullest with my children and family. I know that you are with dad, the love of your life. And also beside the love of my life, my Memo. Please continue to give me strength and take care of Memo for me until I can join him. I Love You and I feel happy knowing that you are whole again. May GOD bless you always.🙏🏼💕
Love, Your Daughter Annie

Annie & Martha,

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember your mom treating me like family during Annie's wedding. I couldn't believe the love she radiated. She made me feel loved just like my grandmother use to. I remember wishing that feeling would never go away.

Thank you for sharing her with me, even if it was just for a brief moment. I will pray for her just as I pray for Joey, but mostly I will pray for you, Annie. I pray that the lord touches your heart and protects you through this difficult time

Semper Fi,

Your Friend Forever,

Carlos P. Saldaña (P-Wee)

Grandma,
The most kind, loving, spiritual woman I have ever known. Thank you for always being so warm and welcoming, I will always remember spending summers with you and Grandpa and riding the bus around town with you. I miss and will cherish the memories we made with all our family together in your Santa Fe Springs home. I still have yet to taste tortillas like yours. I will miss your warm hugs so much. I am sad that you are no longer with us but I am so happy your have your mind and your dances shoes back. Give Grandpa and My Daddy a big hug and kiss for me and let me know how much we miss them. Until we meet again Gram, I love you Cruzita! ~ JoAnn

Our beautiful angel! I love you so much grandma. I remember having sleepovers at your house with you and Papa Honey. Watching your novelas with you. Waking up to your Canaries chirping in the morning. You always had fresh homemade tortillas and the most deliscious homemade oatmeal cookies ready for all of us. The best memories with the family and the beautiful home and yard papa loved so much. It wasn’t easy watching you decline all these years with your memorie loss. I am just so happy your home with Papa and you are yourself again. That sweet, beautiful, loving grandma. I will miss your sweet laugh and smile and you saying “cheeeese”. I know your right there with my Dad and papa and pray you guys look over us. Until we meet again grandma Cruzita we love you!
