"Mi tiempo ya se llega. Mi tiempo se me va. Mi tiempo se ha llegado de irme a descansar. Los tengo yo en mi mente, los traigo en el corazón, los llevo en mi alma a donde quiera que voy. Mi esposo y mis hijos son mi amor y me esperanza, ellos son mi futuro en toda mi existencia. Aquí se me termina y en el cielo se me va alumbrar, enseñándome el camino que debo yo tomar." We have lost a great mother and wife who will live in our hearts forever.
