Dear Sandra, Carl, Vivien and Raymond,
Needless to say we were very saddened by your mom's passing. She was blessed however in having such a wonderful and loving family around her all the time. I would always marvel when Lucy would tell us that you would gather at her house for pasta every Sunday. It is a wonderful thing when families can gather on ordinary days just to be together. I know you will all miss that.
I also know that Lucy will miss your mom deeply. It was more than an aunt and niece relationship. They were sisters. They were best friends. This really hit her hard and I know that there is nothing anyone can say at a time like this to make it less painful. I loved hearing the Lydia stories that Lucy would tell...and tell...and tell!
You were very fortunate to live close to her and to be with her during her last days. A mother could ask for nothing more.
Please know that we mourn your loss as well and that we are thinking of you and praying for Lydia.
Nicki and Jorge
