Mama, when I asked you, "What am I going to do without you?"
Your eyes were closed, but you smiled a big smile and said,
"Don't worry mija, I will be with you." Thank you again Mom, as this
memory and moment brings comfort to me.

I was privileged to know Patsy for almost 38 years. She was full of life, smiles, laughter, and great conversation. When you were at Patsy’s house, you were always welcome. I spent a few holidays at Patsy and Raul’s with my two little girls, and they always treated us like their family. Patsy was the most gracious hostess, and a beautiful woman of God.

Patsy was a very sweet person, she loved conversing and always had a kind word to say about everyone. She was a special mother-in-law who enjoyed hearing about her grandchildren. Rest In Peace Patsy. Love always Lil.
