Helen and Anna I got to say thank you for sharing your Momma with me this evening! My Maggie helped up when my Momma passed and she became someone so special because she understood! I loved talking to her and I loved the advise she gave me little did I know I would never get to say goodbye! Even when she got sick the first thing was I’m sorry and said you need to get tested, not a care for herself but for us, what a great person to think of everyone else before herself! Well my Maggie as we say goodbye I want to tell everyone how much I loved you and I will so miss you!!!! Say Hi to Momma for me and I’ll see you all sometime!

Nena was a special person in our family’s life. She came to us at a difficult time as a caregiver for my Dad, two years before he passed away.
My mother had just passed away and my father was very sad. Nena’s caring and upbeat personality was a blessing to all of us. She helped take great care of him and was a spiritual presence.
I pray that God comforts Nena’s entire family at this time. Thank you for sharing her with us.

Helen introduced her Mom, Ms. Maggie, to me on Volunteer Night October 2019. Although I knew her for a fleeting moment (almost 2 years); it felt like I’d known her all my life. She had such a sweet spirit, and immediately she made me feel like I was her best friend! In my daily prayers, as I remember her, I look up & smile and ‘urge’ her to Go Meet My Mom (if she hasn’t yet) who is already in Heaven (2011). Ms. Maggie seemed to be so much like her in that they loved their family and those around them, they were full of life and loved to have fun, they always kept their beautiful smile because ‘they had the joy that is unspeakable and full of glory’ 1 Peter 1:8. Most important they Both loved the Lord Jesus Christ - OUR HOPE OF GLORY - Colossians 1:27. So, My Dear Helen, we look forward to Heaven - to that Great Reunion on That Day🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I love you and I am here for you❤️

To the Children, Grandchildren, and Great-grandchildren of Nena Gonzales, be assured that our love and prayers are with you!
May the love of God, His comfort and peace be with you as she rejoices in the presence of our Lord with her husband, sons and other loved ones.
I had spoken with her and she sent me a card saying that she would he so happy if I would accompany her in April for her birthday. It made me so happy that after all these years, we still felt a bond. We met while in a double date with a nephew and uncle. We married and became family We would reminisce of 58 years ago.
To my friend Nena, I will celebrate with in heaven!
