Gracias por la paciencia, carino y amor que le dio a nuestra Mama todos los dias. Mom you will always be in our minds, our prayers and forever in our hearts. You will surely be missed by all of us. "Our Lord looked around his garden and found an empty place, he then looked upon earth and saw your tired face, he put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, because he only takes the best. He knew she would never get well on earth again, he saw the road ahead was getting rough, the hills would be hard to climb, and so he closed her weary eyelids and whispered "Peace on thine". This is not goodbye, just so long for now. Until we meet you again and dad again, give him lots of hugs and kissed for us.
