Señora Lorenza was always so kind and sweet to me and my family. She always made me feel welcomed. I loved listening to her stories and how she would listen to mine, too. I will never forget her beautiful smile, her warmness, happiness, laughs, and her greeting me as “bonita”. She made me feel special. She was special, a beautiful human being. I will miss her.

My prayers are with you Gutierrez family. God bless you all.

When I think of my godmother, I think of her warm smile and her giggle. She always had a way of making you feel like you were the most important person when you were talking to her. Blessed to have known her. My condolences to the whole Gutierrez familia. God bless.
