ADELINA PADILLA SALAZAR 5/7/1960 - 3/3/2003 They say memories are golden and we believe that's true. But we never wanted memories, we only wanted you. If teardrops were a stairway and heartaches made a lane, we'd walk that path to heaven and bring you home again. A thousand times we've needed you, a thousand times we've cried. If love could have saved you, you never would have died.
