One blessed memory I have , is when I was about twelve yrs old. I'm sixty two now. My aunt Elvira and my uncle Faustino invited myself and three other siblings to the beach with them. It was my first time to the beach if u can believe that. My stepdad didn't like the beach so we never went. On top of having her own five children to care for she didn't mind. That's how loving and caring she was. She watched over us as of we were her own. We had so much fun we all came back with sunburns on our backs. Lol It was crazy fun. Tia you will dearly be missed. Until we meet again. Give my mom a kiss from me. She always loved u too.

My mother was the rock of the family. She would pray every day to God to keep us all well and safe. She had a long list, family and friends. My best friend Mom. We would talk everyday. She would give me advise, we would cry and laugh together. Mom was a very loving, giving person. Family was always first. She and Dad raised 5 children by there selfs since dad was in Army. Friends became family. My mother had a beautiful smile. She would brighten the room. Mom had a big heart. Even though her children are grown she would always worry about us, her grandchildren and greatgrand children. Her favorite hobby was getting on the computer and making pictures from facebook, messenger. We have a group messenger for Gomez family. Thats how we would keep in touch and face time. It made her day. Mother will be dearly missed. Love you very much Mommy. Ill see you one day. My the perpetual light shine upon you. God bless always. We will take care of Dad.
