To the most beautiful lady on earth and now to one of the most beautiful saints in heaven. After losing my mother early in my marriage you stepped up, and became my precious mama.
I will miss you dearly, our wonderful conversations, laughter, and especially our music, Chuck, me and you singing on Friday night's. You will forever be in my heart. Love you mama 💞 😧
Until we meet again.
Via con Dios

Arcelia Rodriguez was a sweet wonderful woman with a kind heart. She always made my dad, my sister and I feel special with her kind words about my mom after my mom passed away. She lived a long and wonderful life. I feel truly blessed that I got to know her through out my years growing up. Rest in peace Mrs. Rodriguez you will be dearly missed.

Mom, my heart is broken and I am lost. You were my hero and our families rock. You never had a harsh word to say only genuine love in your heart. Everyone you met loved you as you loved everyone unconditionally. I will always treasure our Wednesday evenings/Thursday days together and feel so honored that I was there for you when you needed me the most. I know life will go on but it will never be the same. A part of my heart went with you when you passed. I will miss hearing you sing your special songs. Until we meet again mommy, I will always be your baby girl.
I love you always and forever,
Your daughter Priscilla
