Rest in Peace my beautiful and sweet cousin. Oh how sad I was when you moved to Arizona. It felt like you had moved to another country! We didn't visit much when you lived in the Houston area but I loved our many phone conversations and the times we visited you & Victor at your ranch. And we absolutely enjoyed your "three kings" when they would come fishing in Texas City & Galveston & they would spend the night with us. I will forever remember your beautiful smile and that twinkle in your eyes! Mom is already missing you. Until we meet again, enjoy your boys & family.

Oralia, is my dear cousin. Although we have not seen each other in a few years, I have many memories through the years, especially when we both lived in San Benito. Our families were very close. Rest in Peace, dear cousin.🙏🙏🙏♥️

My sincere condolences. I only knew Oralia for a little under a year but she became a very important person to me and I am so sad to lose her but know she is no longer suffering.
