Tia, my heart is so sad to know I will never again get to see your beautiful face, see your beautiful smile or smell your perfume again. I remember walking in to your home at Christmas time and would always hug and kiss you and say "wow tia u smell so good" and you would smile so beautifully. You made me feel so loved. I remember when we all were together and I could not wait to eat your delicious carrot cake. I remember when my sister and I had a dance at school and you made sure we had beautiful dresses to wear. I never got to say thank you for taking time and making my beautiful baptism dress, I still have it to this day. Thank you! I bet Heaven is more beautiful with you in it. I love you Tia Nena, your niece Little Nena

There are not enough words to say what you have meant to me. You were 2 years old when I was born. You cut my hair, made and altered my clothes, and made me a dress from a feed bag. You cooked for me so many times. You and Manuel were godparents to my sons and it broke your heart when they passed away. Thank you for all that you did for me and my family and I thank Manuel for taking such good care of you. My heart will love and remember you always. Until we meet again my dear sister. Hugs and kisses.

I can't believe that I am writing in your obituary memories. At some point in life we lose loved ones. But it doesn't make it by any means easier. I'm still trying to process that you aren't with us anymore. That I can't facetime you and see you smile and laugh. Everytime I make myself coffee I cry. I hear a song that reminds me of you and I cry again. My heart is breaking. I love you more than you could ever know. I miss you so bad my heart hurts. I want to thank you for being you. Flawed yet perfect. I thank you for all of the memories. All of the lessons in life. I miss your cooking. Your laugh. You're beautiful smile. The way you would point at us when we did something bad and we knew you meant business. The way you and daddy smiled and laughed. You taught me everything about art and how to cook. You gave me two amazing sisters and a shining example of what true love and devotion is between a husband and a wife. I love you Ma. I miss you so bad it hurts, but I know you are at peace. Sitting in heaven drinking coffee with Abuela and all our loved ones who have preceded you. Thank you for being you. I love you and miss you beyond words.
