We will always remember Minnie for her generosity to others and her kindness. We are particularly grateful to Minnie for the love and support she shared with our sister Mary during the last years of her life. Minnie was her faithful friend and companion whether it was a trip to the bank and the grocery store or taking care of her in her home upon discharge from the hospital after a serious illness. We will miss Minnie's robust laughter and sense of humor.
Until we meet again........Ralph and Geri Martinez.
