MOM, losing you is one of the hardest things we have to face. The house is empty and many of us are at a loss as to what we should do next. Please dont worry - somehow and someway all these problems will solve themselves. We will miss your laugh, your touch, our visits, and all the poignant and amusing conversations. A million thanks for the memories you made with each one of us. They will bring comfort during those quiet moments when reality reminds us that you are gone. As you watch over us Mom, please know WE WILL ALL BE OKAY! Visitation services will be held Monday, May 14, 2012 from 4:00 to 7:00 P.M. with recitation of the rosary at 7:00 P.M. all at River Cities Funeral Chapel in West Sacramento, CA. Private inurnment.
