I loved going to visit her and the family every summer with my mom and dad. She would get so mad at me because I would always ask when were we leaving! Thus the nickname she gave me....mi dolor de estomago!! I'm so glad You and Presley got to meet!! Going to miss you tía, Love you always!

If Christ would have had another meaning for LOVE it would have been "CHAVELA". She was true LOVE. She loved us all and we love her dearly.
RIP Chavela .
