Me parece mentira que estoy escribiendo esta nota. Para mi, usted en un futuro lejano seria la viejita mas joven, mas bella, y con mas cache de todas. Siempre pense que un ser tan lleno de vida nos duraria por mucho tiempo. Siento un dolor tan grande que esa vision de verla a sus 70, 80, 90 seran solo una vision. Que tristesa mami, que dolor. Que vacio tan grande nos dejas a todos. De toda la vida fuiste la favorita de muchos y muy querida por todos. Me encantaba que todos nuestras amistades te llamaban mami, para tus hermanos Tati, para tus sobrinos la tia favorita, para mama el gobierno de Lili y para nosotros mami. Nosotros fuimos privilejiados de llamarte mami, de tenerte como amiga y de que nuestros hijos te llamaran mamá. Siempre admire tu amor honesto, tu forma sincera, tu espiritu joven, tan repleta de vida y siempre feliz. Tu amor nos hara tanta falta, como duele no tenela mami. Gracias a ti soy quien soy. Tu alegria, generosidad
, Fortaleza y positivismo segiran siendo mi legado y orgullo para el resto de mi vida. Te prometo que tratare de ser tan fuerte como tu. Pero no se como podre aprender a vivir sin ti. Love you.
Bendicion mami.

Su tocaya,su admiradora e hija,

No hay palabras para expresar la gran perdida que sentimos en nuestra familia por la perdida de una gran mujer, madre y abuela. Se ha quedado un gran vacio y nos hara mucha falta. Gracias a Dios que nos permitio quererla y poder haber compartido tantos momentos lindos con ella. Siempre recordaremos su alegria, su amor por la vida y su familia. Aunque no este aqui en persona, la sentimos,la recordaremos y amaremos para siempre.

Mama, you were always a great grandmother. I loved you very much and so did the rest of us. It's very hard for me at this age to have such a loss. But I know that it's better that you aren't here with us because you are healthy and happy, with your mom and dad in heaven. And to me, that's what matters. It's gonna be hard not having you with us, and it is sad. But I know how you never liked us to be unhappy so I will try and be strong for not only you, but my mommy too. You will be forever in my heart. I love you.

Mama its crazy that your gone it seems like just the other day we were all together. I love you so much like you can never imagine. Even though we lived so far apart I barely got to see you, I loved every second I could spend with you. I'll miss you mama and I will always love you

You'd think that after a few days of crying & being in pain because of your death is enough but I can't even begin to explain how much I miss you & how much it hurts to see people who loved you as much if not more than me in pain as well, they say time heals wounds but this is a wound I don't think will ever be healed. You were such a loving grandmother, I get upset whenever I think about the fact that my children won't be able to meet such an amazing woman & I get upset when I realize that I wasn't as close to you as I wish I could be. I can remember your laughter like as if it was just yesterday that I heard it, it would light up the room and make everyone laugh too. Just to have you in my life was a blessing in itself but to have you as a grandmother,I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful that was. You would always try to spoil me & all your other grandchildren as much as you could. I remember being little and you always sitting me down to tell me stories about Tia Betty, Tia Jenny, Tia Perla & Papi. It's sad to think that these are just memories now, I don't want you to be a memory. The day of your funeral didn't seem real, because I was still in denial that you're actually gone, with everyday that passes by it seems to get harder and harder to deal with your loss. I see pictures of you smiling & I can't even express how happy it makes me but a lso sad at the same moment cause I will never be able to see that beautiful smile again. All I have is pictures and memories of you that I will cherish till the day that I die. Te amo mama, aunque no estes aqui conmigo, estaras en mi corazon para siempre. Heaven received an angel way too soon.

It pains me to know that our lives must go on without you. Not only was your presence something dearly special but a blessing to us all. Never once did you fail to make us feel loved and cared for. Your smile and laugh were contagious and no matter what mood I was in you'd make me feel better. I remember when I got sick in Boston and you would rub my stomach and give me kisses. The days you'd slap my butt because ever time you'd see me I was taller than before. The visits to Boston and you telling me stories about the past and how i reminded you alot of mami when she was little. All these little details are the ones that will forever remain engraved in my heart. I'm going to miss hugging you and hearing you call me "mis ojos lindos". Its hard to except a loss so grand but I know you're continuing you're extraordinary life in heaven and taking care of us like you always did. Te amo con todo mi alma y poder Mama muchos besos.

Especial para ti madre mía del alma no hay ni habrá palabra para expresar el dolor que me causa tu partida pero se que donde estés esta cerca de dios porque estoy agradecida con dios porque mejor madre no me pudo escojer y usted deja mi corazón rebosante de ese amor incodicional que sólo una madre como usted pudo darme la extraño mucho sé donde está hay paz y vive y en mi corazón por siempre hasta luego mi mami querida le pido que me de fortaleza para aprender ha seguir adelante con su ausencia física porque sus memorias me harán vivir cada día la amo la extraño su perlita la amoooooo por siempreeee Bendición mami

Dear Family Peña-Tavarez, This has been a great loss for a lot of people. It's hard to believe that such a caring and warm hearted person is no longer with us. Our hearts are with you in this time of sorrow. Grief can be so hard but our special memories help us cope. She referred to me and my siblings as her grand children, and we will truly miss her and her lovely personality. She will forever live in our hearts. RIP Bethania Peña<3 - Your grandchildren Lismari, Luis & Berleinie.

Todo lo suyo era único, su forma de reír, su expresión al mirar, y su carácter tan especial son inolvidables;ten en cuenta que lo que vivimos hoy es muy triste pero recordar todo lo bueno vivido y compartido nos traerá serenidad :-(
