Nana my sweet Nana. Nana I miss the old days when I was young boy and I would come to Florida to spend time with you And papa over the summer. I remember all the fun times we had and all the times we to Disney world, old town and just going to the grocery store with you. I remember one time you gave me $20 and I thought was rich. I rode my bike you bout me to the nearest Kfc and spent my whole $20 Popcorn chicken lol. You where so mad but you didn’t show it. You just told me next time spend my money on more then 1 thing. Man I miss those times. I miss coming to New York during Christmas and summer yet all that good home made Puerto Rican food listening to Salas and soaking up my Latino side and heritage. There is so much, it’s too much to say but know my sweet sweet nana I will miss and I do love you soooo much. I know your in happy place and you are with the love of your life Kenny from the Bronx. And through this hard time that worms my heart that you guys are together and that you are still with me through mind body and soul. Your best I love you!! Quintin Dwayne “MARTINEZ”. 😘🇵🇷

Hello Nana,
I sure am going to miss you. I wouldn’t know what family meant if it wasn’t for love you showed me and now I have a family of my own. I try to make sure I love them unconditionally the way you did. I make sure they are strong and resilient the way you are. I know a little piece of you lives on thoughout each and everyone of us. As for the things I never got to tell you, I just want to say thank you! Thank you for everything. Te quiero mucho!

Hi Ma,
Why did I think that you were going to live forever? Maybe because you beat the 9 lives of a cat. 🐱 I miss you and miss coming to your house, making noise and preparing to celebrate father's day. You'd get so jealous when we'd make a fuss over daddy. I loved going to Bay Park barbecuing and flying kites with the family. We always tried to do what papa wanted and you always came along for the ride. Well nana, you have him all to yourself now. Let him have fun today.
Love you and until we meet again.
Your Loving daughter

Well Vieja,
Tomorrow your physical matter will be put away as in your wishes. Your spirit has already ascended into the heavens. You survived so much in your lifetime, did and witnessed so many events that you were part of history. You did really good mami. You raised a nice family and had them in your life for a very long time. You made sure to keep us close even if there were wrinkles in our relationships. It satisfied your need to love and to be loved. Gosh! You were funny ma. You had me laughing all the time with these old Puerto Rican refranes. I also loved the way you cooked and made arroz con gandules. I want you to know that all of your grandchildren cook really good. You were exquisitely beautiful. Stunningly gorgeous. I use to look at you and marvel at how crystal clear blue your eyes were. It made me feel good to have such a pretty mother. I'm so happy that you got to spend time with the great grandchildren. Unfortunately, your grandchildren are missing you terribly. They've taken your passing really hard and wish to remember you as they last saw you. I miss you and hope I told you enough that I love you.
With all of my love,
Your #2 daughter Nina

Grandma was always good to me. Made sure I wasn't hungry and held me close when I would visit. I have plenty memories with her, but I'll highlight the one that sticks with me.

When I was really young grandma with her hatchback Toyota would drive us to the mall, eat some McDonald's and we would just walk and sit in the mall. Nothing else really, but in my opinion that's what made it special.

Its that personal time that she gave to me that resonates with me because in those moments nothing else in the world mattered. Everything was okay and grandma was their for me. I'll miss you very much grandma.

I remember some of us crashing in nana and papa's house by surprise. We would order food, play dominoes, play music, dance and having a whole bunch of laughs. Most of the time it was at papa's expense. You would ask him a question and since he couldn't hear he'd give you a totally different answer that you didn't expect. Nana would shake her head and we all would laugh. It wasn't always peaches and cream with them, but they understood each other and made it work. They knew the importance of those marriage vows and were dedicated to each other. In the end they both needed a lot of care. All of us did our part as best as we could. Whether it was monetarily, bringing in groceries, taking them to the doctors, buying them clothes, picking up their medicine, taking them out to eat whatever it took to make their lives easier. Selfishly, we wanted them to live forever. I miss them terribly.
