My sincere condolences to the family. Cruzita was my good friend from junior and high school. We hooked up again in the early 90s sharing many good times. Makes me smile to remember those times. My family thought the world of her.
May she rest in eternal peace.

I want to express my condolences to the family of Cruz Librada Diaz. Cruz was a wonderful and sweet person. I have known Cruz for a long time and I always enjoyed speaking with her. She always had this sweet smile. I remember her when we taught CCD classes at St. Joseph's Catholic Church. May she rest in peace.

She would come up with some awesome games for them to play .. and made sure they got rewarded for there efforts ... We were thinking about her when someone said she passed away , but we couldn't beleive it ... our condolences to her family and her church family as well .. fly high Cruz .. from Socorro Perez Hiitola
