Our dearest Peeps. As our family called her. She was such a precious cousin, and I loved her so as did my Mijo. Too many great times to count when she was at my house, made numerous meals in my kitchen with love. And extended Family would gather around the table, enjoying her cooking. I will forever cherish these in my heart my dear Peeps. And remember our great times together. Too many to write about. Mari, Mando and Family I am so SORRY for your Tremendous loss. She is flying high with the Angels.
Love Paula

Because of you I was able to receive my sacrament of my first communion. I remember you taking me to get my dress and telling me bird (is what you called me) pick the one you like. I have so many childhood memories.. from being able to play Atari , smurf cereal and ice cups. May Perpetual light shine on you. Thank you for all that you did for our family. Fly high my Godmother.

Virginia was a beautiful loving person inside and out. She was a caregiver to my children when they were babies. She was known as “Nanny “. She loved them and they loved her so much that they always wanted to stay with her instead of coming home with me after work. I felt good in my heart because I knew she was taking good care of Megan and Zachary. I appreciated her for that. May she Rest In Peace with her loved ones.

Tia Veve, to this day I can hear you call me by my nickname. You were the one that got me hooked on Purisa. I remember the visits to AZ. As I got older we didn't visit much but mom, your ugly sister(LOL) would always keep me updated on how you were. Will always keep you in my heart and will always love you. You are our guardian angel. You are now at peace without pain. Prayers to all the family. Hugs and kisses.

Aunt VEVE, I loved you so! I will always remember the days we would sit at the kitchen table in Castroville and talk with Granny and laugh so much. You were always sneaking sweets! Your sister would get on to you saying you shouldn't have it and we would laugh. "Thata way you learn!!" will be in my brain forever. Weekend sleepovers and Sunday mornings in Castroville were definitely some of my favorite times. I also loved going places with you, Aunt Linda, and Granny. Always a hoot! You taught me how to make my own tortillas! I will never forget you! Xoxo How blessed we are to have you now as an angel to watch over us. Sending all of our love to your children. May you rest in peace.
