My beautiful tia Ana,
My memories of you were awesome, you were the coolest aunt and my most favorite aunt out of my dad’s sisters. I always remember your smile! You were always so happy, so alive that you would walk into a room and light it up with your smile. I want to thank you for being so good and supportive to my mom even when she was divorcing your brother. You were there for us in Rhode Island. You even convinced my parents to move from New York to Rhode Island to be closer to you and have better living environment. I mean I can go on and on about you and be here talking up a storm. Thank you for all the good memories tia. Tia i loved your food and you knew I loved white rice and bacalao which you would make for me. Never ever did I see you sad, angry or upset. Always so cheerful and I know that now your still the same just smiling from above instead of here.
Love you tia always! Till we meet again.....Tia that’s why I didn’t want to say goodbye at the hospital because I rather say till we meet again, because I know you are still with us!

Dear Auntie, Tia Ana

I will remember you always and look forward to seeing you on the other side when we are all reunited with Jesus and family. I will cherish the memories of your keeping the tradition of blessing us when you saw us. Also eternally grateful for the time you came along our family's side when we were going through a hard time in my childhood. I remember the day our family was leaving on a plane and I shared with mom that I had a night mare the night before of flying on a cartoon polar bear and it crashed and his eyes where xd out. You told mom that bad dreams meant the opposite was going to happen and we took courage from that and went on our flight no problems, no regrets. You were a source of strength for us in some of our weakest moments and we will always remember. Peace and Confort to all my cousins and family and her sister and family.
