I thank God for parents like you. You were like an angel in my life. You were always there for me. I will always remember the encouragement you gave me and the times you told me everything will be all right.

Annie said you and dad were made for each other. You always complemented each other. When you walked into a room, your personality would light up everyone's spirit's.

I remember the Christmas Eve as well as other holidays when family and friends would celebrate at the house. You were always so hospitable.

Your strength and courage always amazed me. You never thought of yourself. You were always giving to others.

You made a difference in the life of everyone! You always faced obstacles and overcame them. Nothing was too hard for you. You give me courage every day.

Rich Rodriquez put a candle in your hospital room that never goes out. You are a bright light that lives on in our lives.

You were Nancy's best friend. You gave Annie the courage to get a job at a bank. I could go on about the lives you touched.
