I was totally surprised when I heard of your passing only because it was Christmas day. I only regret that I wasn't able to call you to wish you a merry Christmas but now that you have passed on to your new life in heaven with your brothers and sisters, when we celebrate Christmas, the whole family will always celebrate and acknowledge your life with us too.
I am so honored and proud to have been your son for you showed and taught me so many things. In your own way you tried to protect me the best you could when I was young. I'll never forget how you took on the neigborhood bully who took the money that I was supposed to use to buy you some incredients from the grocery store. You not only got the money back back, you earned total respect from the bully's brothers who were watching as you took a swing at him in your fit of anger. You were never afraid to stand up to injustice especially when it came to your children. I loved talking to you on the phone about everything, like the family, your garden but especially cooking. Your mind was always sharp up to the last of your living days and I used get a kick out of making you laugh for you had the greatest smile even though you hardly smiled in pictures, I was able to snap a few where you did. To friends you were the most loyal and generous friend they could have. They loved your conversation,cooking and especially your desserts. To me, even though we didn't spend a lot of time together because of the distance, I savored our moments when we had the opportunity to see each other in person. You would always tell me how you regretted not doing more for me when I was a kid, like renting a musical instrument so I could take music classes in school or signing me up for sports when I wanted to join the teams. I'd forgiven you way back then because I knew you couldn't afford it but you did your best and most of all I knew you loved me like you loved all your kids. But I guest and knew I was special because before you met dad, we had about 4 years to ourselves. That's right and I still remember and felt your warmth when we alone but together. I remember how you would pray and asked for forgiveness and at the time I didn't understand why you would but I guess you just wanted a better life for us. Well you did get a better life when you met dad, for he provided for you and became your companion for 53 years. And even though we had our ups and downs I'm truly glad you provided for him as well. Because I have 3 brothers and one sister who you raised and I helped when I was younger, who are the best, most beautiful, loving and kindest brothers & sister any one would love to have. I love my family but I know that you are the foundation of all of it. I will miss talking to you mom but I know the fond memories of you will always keep you alive in my mind like the rest of your children and grand children. Thank you for giving me all the love and support you could. Your spirit will always be within me and that I am grateful for. I love you always, you son Daniel

Aunty Lita,
I know that I didn't know you very well but I did have the honor of meeting for the very first time when I was 16 years old while my family took Aunty Helen to visit in Torrance. I was honored to see you again for my dear sweet Gramma's birthday in April. Your passing is a really hard one for me cause you were the last of my Grampa Delmar's Siblings to join them in life and now you are the last of em to join them in heaven. The Lagrimas family is a very special family to be apart of cause we all know the true meaning of family. It doesn't take a tragedy to bring us all together. I want to say that I send my deepest condolences to her husband, children, and Grandchildren. All of you will always have a place in my heart as well as the rest of the Ohana.
Veronica "Roni Girl" Antuna

P.S. Please give my dear sweet Grampa and Gramma a hug and kiss for me.

Julius and Family, We are very sorry to hear of your loss. As you know, Lita was one of the few people that my wife thought a lot of and frequently talked about the memories she and Lita shared in Puerto Rico. Berna and Carla were good friends and that brought them together. Whenever caritina would talk on the phone with Lita, they really had a good time. We're going to miss her. God Bless you and Your Family. Carl and Caritina Winston

My Special Aunt

It takes many special qualities,
To make an aunt like you,
A lot of care and kindness
And understanding, too...
It takes a special kind of love
That seems to know no end
And the thoughtfulness and patience
Of a true and trusted friend...
It takes many special qualities
To make an aunt like you,
And that's why you
Are loved so much
Today and for all eternity.

I am so honored, to have gotten the opportunity to meet you and cousin Bernadette last April when you came to California. I will truely miss you, but never forget you.

Rest in Peace Aunty
I Love You!

It was a sure pleasure having Aunty Lita and Bernadette come to California for Aunty Lita's and my mom Clarice's birthday party in April of this year 2010. I was planning to see her in April of 2011 for her birthday. I will miss her very much, she will always be in my heart. I will remember all the good times and memories we shared together. You will all be in our prayers and thoughts. God Bless. Darlene and Ray Montes & Famly (Stockton, CA)

Dear James and Family,
Grief is especially hard during the holiday season. Let your friends and happy memories carry you through this time of sorrow.
Here is a thought that we hope you will find comforting. "Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."
