To Grandmama,

In the weeks before her passing, I would stop over to grandmama’s before class to see how she was doing as well as to see my grandma Elsa who, if she wasn't at work, was spending time with grandmama. I would go over in Nike shorts and a t-shirt, to which grandmama would always ask “Are you going running, mija?” to then she would simulate running motions with her arms followed by a sly wink once my grandma Elsa would turn around. This never failed to make me laugh and is one of the best memories I have of grandmama. She was always a joy to be around, was never in a bad mood and above all, she never judged me or doubted me.
I would like to include that in the days before her passing, I never once doubted her love for everyone, on the contrary, I thought about how astonishing it was that one person could love so many people. Being just 19 years old, this thought had never crossed my mind considering I grew up with just 2 siblings, but seeing my grandma Elsa and her 8 siblings, I realized how many people have descended from grandmama Amparo and grandpapa Leopoldo alone. Seeing how much my grandma Elsa sacrifices for me and my family really puts into perspective the amount of sacrificing grandmama and grandpapa did to support 9 children. Not only the sacrifices, but the amount of sheer love they had for each and every one of us. I know grandmama would want all of us to live life surrounded by our loved ones and to love one another just as she had, and I know I would continue to learn and live my life the way in which grandmama Tovar did: with a smile and a heart of gold.

-Your Great-Granddaughter, Jaid Perez.

Mother,

If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane.
I would walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say "Goodbye".
You were gone before I knew it,
and only God knows why.

My heart still aches with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to love you -
No one can ever know.

But now I know you want me
to mourn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times
life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today~
A hollowed place within my heart
is where you'll always stay.

-Your Loving Daughter, Elsa Perez.

To My Grandma Amparo: Grandma Tovar was a great woman with a great sense of humor and a heart of gold. I will never forget the day my brother and I were very young, my brother must have been 4 and I was 3years old. We decided we would walk all the way to Grandparents home . Needles to say we made it safely to our grandparents home and we know we were in trouble. Grandma Tovar ask my mother not to spank us and she cried when my mother did so. Grandma was a trooper and consoled my brother and I. We just wanted to be with our grandparents. At that time my brother and I were the only two grandchildren until the others came along, but loved everyone of us just the same.

I'am so glad and proud that my grandma was always caring and loving to all her grandchildren no matter what. She had a heart of gold. Thank you Grandma for always being you. I will truly miss you.

Love Suki
