No words can express how much I love you. We're going to miss you camping and taking vacations. Most of all I'm going to miss our shopping days going to the second hand store and shopping for flowers. Oh did we have fun shopping for those flowers. You worked so hard at making your yard look so beautiful for everyone to see.
You were and are the rock of our family's. I will cherish all the love, encouragement and of course discipline that you gave each and everyone of us.
I will always remember when you had one of your bad days, I told you I loved you to the moon and back and you told me I love you too but I'm not coming back and you giggled. Mom I'm so thankful that we got to take care of you during these last seventeenth months we shared many memories of our life experiences. I'm going to miss you but I know you are in a better place and pain free.
Love you forever
your Daughter Jeannette

Wow. So many memories of my beautiful mother in law. She has been in my life for 43 years , and always had wise advice for me whenever I needed it. I loved the many times she went on vacation with us. Also the weekends she spent with us when we lived in Estes Park. She was an awesome mother,grandmother and great grandmother to my children and grandchildren. I will miss her laugh and beautiful smile. I love you mom.

When I think of the life of my oldest sister Angie, I’m thankful she was a part of my life! The fact that she was my sister in no way diminishes the way I will always remember her as a “mother” to me. She was also a confidant, an adviser and a loving and giving person, especially in my formative years. As I grew older and became a husband and father she still opened her heart to me and my family! “Come over any time “ ways always her departing words! Whenever we spoke she was always positive, no matter how she felt and always believed you had a hand in your destiny. She was always beloved during good and bad times. I’ll miss you Angie, you earned your rest!
I will always love you and miss you, as will my family. Good bye “Mom”! David, Linda, Mark, Susan,Pablo and Hector!❤️❤️❤️
