When i was young me and my friends would ride our bikes to Mayfair in the Valley Plaza. We would go by the bakery and stare at all the goodies behind the glass counter. Mrs. Nunez would tell us to wait while she assisted the customers but then would call us over and ask us to pick something out. She would tell us to be good to each other and stay in school. She would have a huge smile when she gave us a free goodie! She was an Angel to me and my friends. My heart aches for Ceci & Patty who i went to school with. My deepest sympathy goes out to all the family and friends of Mrs. Nunez. May you rest in Heaven Donut Lady... This world needs more people like you.

Mary Lou what a beautiful Lady. To her Daughters continue to love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything. Be quick to give a meal to the hungry, a bed to the homeless cheerfully. Your Mother was a pillar in the community she will be missed and was greatly loved by many. RIH Mary Lou Nunez. I am so sorry for your loss. God Bless you All.
