The last time I visited with my prima was at Southwest General Hospital. Avelina had taken a bad fall and was recovering at the same time my brother Simon was interned at the same hospital. She was cheefull as usual even though she had bruised face from the fall and was in pain. . We visited for a short time. Less recent I remember her at Vidals birthday party few years back and i have a nice picture of her sitting next to vidal that day.
To all my priomos/as I hope you find the strength to continue on without your sweet mother and continue doing her proud in your endeavors and lives.
Amor y Paz.
Que descanse en paz mi qurida prima.

I only met Miss. Zapata once and I saw the beauty, joy, and love she has for all her children. This is a strong beautiful mother with wisdom and love.
I know these days are hard and full of sorrow, but Always Remember she is resting and watching over all of you. She has no pain no tears and sorrow She is with her heavenly Father The Lord Jesus Christ. REV. 21:4
My comfort and love go to all the family and my friend Freddie Sr, Smiley, Freddie Jr.
