We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Tia Tencha. I will recall fondly her excellent cooking and love for her family. Sadly, I never spoke Spanish well enough to communicate with her without a translator, yet I'm positive she knew exactly what I was saying. Her close bond with my grandmother will be missed for sure. May she rest in peace. With our Deepest Sympathy
from El Paso.
