One of my favorite pictures of Tia Irma and my dad (John Longoria) from 2 years ago. I will always remember her beautiful smile and the way she called me “mijita.”

Condolences to Garcia Soza family. We were neighbors growing up and every time I eat a tamale I think of our neighbors. Mama Garcia taught me how to spread that masa. Irma was a great person always very cheerful. We will be together someday! Sara Godino Gonzalez
