Liz and family,

My condolences to the Barratachea family, Vargas family and Clark family. Theodora was such a welcoming person and great cook. She loved her OLG church and I remember her being in the choir and sitting in the same spot at church most of the time. You will be missed by your family and friends, but I know you will take care of them from above!! This Corona virus has kept such a distance for all of us to be together as in the past.

Our Family has suffered a great loss. Mi Tia Theodora was always there for us. She was full of life and always willing to help others. She gave me words of advice and support. I remember her dancing with my husband at a wedding. She loved to dance and she was a great teacher. My Tia will always be with us. Con amour, Sylvia

Aunt Dora, you were the "Gem" of the family. You always gave consejos to the one's you loved and cared for. I will always treasure the times we spent visiting or just talking on the phone. You were the one who taught me how to make Menudo and Tamales and those memories will live with me forever. You will be greatly missed but never forgotten. The loving memories that we made will linger on. God Bless you in your heavenly home. Love you always, your niece, (Patsy) as you always called me.
