"Love knows no boundaries. While Esperanza is no longer physically with us, her spirit will always encircle us. Our most heart felt condolences. From the words of Thomas Aldrich " What is lovely never dies, but passes into another loveliness." It is so much like the birds singing in the rain 🌧️, let us allow wonderful memories live on to eternity. May God bless you 🙏 may he lift his contenence upon you and give Esperanza peace 🕊️.

To our Navarro Family we wish to extend our condolences during this very difficult time. Titi Esperanza was the best Aunt we could ever ask God to give us. She was loving yet stern, funny and the life of the Party-she treated everyone like family. Titi will be missed greatly.
Bendicion Titi, que en Paz descanses


Love and Healing,

Josie

A seat was always available for anyone at the Thanksgiving table whom she instinctively knew needed one...

And at the end of her journey here on Earth and the beginning of another in heaven, she still got us all together to celebrate her life...

She said, “never let them tell you you can’t do something....”

All this was my grandmother and more....I could write for days about her... but....

She lives in me and in all uf us who will continue her example....


BENDICION ABUELA!

I’ll see ya again....te veré de nuevo...

Que no se te olvide enviarme un pájaro rojo o amarillo!

Tue nieta quien te adora....

She left with us a legacy of life lessons: she said god is 1st above all, then love of family, then education. Her favorites: Puerto Rican cooking that would have given the best chefs a run for their money, she enjoyed bird watch/feeding gardening, scratching Bingo lottery tickets, Dominoes, the color yellow,she loved seafood, from the 70’s-90s Budweiser in NJ, then she moved on to Coors light in FL and finally she crossed over to White Zinfandel about 10 years ago, she lived the look on all our faces eating her famous Alcapurrias and pasteles and orejitas con Cuajito....
she said love family unconditionally because love is the greatest force....
she was extremely blunt, so much so , that she may have hurt your feelings, but when she came to understand that it did, she was just as quick to apologize...
she was a strong Taina Warrior who lived by the words: “where there is a will there is a way”. I remember she organized an assembly line of family and each member had their part in making pasteles, we sold more than 1,000 of them and paid for my first year of college...
their was never an unfed soul at any family occasion quinceañero, wedding, baptism, Christmas parranda, or divorce party...

yes, there was a party for EVERYTHING under the sun...and a birthday cake for every birthday, and if we could not go to a theme park as a family, we went camping, or BBQ-ing at the iced Tea lake or driving long hours to see Niagara or Kennedy Space center...or a local beach...or Milcreek Park in Willingboro, NJ...
Growing up around her, Speaking Spanish was a must, respecting elders was a must, saying Bendición is still a must, and you didn’t speak unless spoken to...
doors were always open...So many family members lived with her and Abuelo at different points in time because family helps family...and there was always a plate of food for the kids down the street whom she automatically knew were hungry...

Abuela Esperanza went to heaven peacefully 3/31/21 at 3:09am.

Upon her last breath, in my mind, I heard her words: “cuando yo me muera, no me lloren, lo que me vayan a dar, que me lo den en vida”which means, don’t cry at my funeral, just make sure that whatever you wanted to give me, you gave me while alive....

And I kissed her warm forehead and said “Bendicion Abuela...you will live in me and through me....because I will keep your memory alive and I shall see you again...say hi to all our loved ones especially Abuela Suzana, her momma, my great grandmother....

And I kept hearing many of her words in my mind: “I don’t want to live in a bed, it’s no way to live so if it comes to that, let me go and don’t give me a breathing or feeding tube”

so we honored your wishes Abuela....as hard as that was....and I take comfort in the fact that I respected your words...and shall remember your dancing, singing, cooking, gardening, traveling with and for family, and your hard work...

From her lamp factory working days, to keeping a home clean, a husband happy, children and half the neighborhood fed and everyone prayed up for, she had her hands full always...

I also heard her in my mind: singing one of her favorite parranda 🎵 🎶 songs: “quítale quítale quítale quiiiii-tale el tapón, pon pon,” I heard her say “No F’n American Music” when trying to preserve the culture, and “I no peekeee eeengleee pero Fuh-kee fue-kee tooh-jooh” if ever anyone racist tried messing with her....
