Dear Lily and Armando, I write this with a heavy heart and send you my deepest sympathy. To lose a mother is doubly painful.
Lilita and I spent many good times together in NH. I knew her as a kind, warm woman, always a lady with an infectious laugh.
May your happy memories help you during these difficult times.
I will remember your mother in my prayers now and always.
My condolences To Alex and Ashley, Lilita's grandchildren. Tía Edith

Dear Armando & Lily,
My heartfelt condolences to you during this time of sorrow. I have childhood memories of both your mother and father (and "Mandy")from their stay in New Hampshire back in the 60's. We hold them in our hearts; and know we are keeping you in our thoughts.
