In Mom's words: For my children "I have nothing to leave you, only my Love and Blessings. You were all my "FAVORITES" in different ways, for different reasons. Love your siblings always! Protect and care for your children and one another."

Family- Those near and far away are the most important treasures I have to leave you. They are the only ones who will stand by you in good and bad times. Keep in good standing with them. May God shower you with his Grace, Love and Blessings.

A mis amigos, you know who you are; those that have known me at my worst and at my best and have stood by my side regardless.

Sing to me and for me, share your remembrances with my children; tell them whatever I did, good or bad, I put in one hundred percent, tell them that everything I did, I did "con gusto", con ganas NO REGRETS.

I loved you all so very much, no les digo adios, no mas hasta luego.

"La bendicion de Dios Padre, El Hijo y El Spirito Santo. La de Maria y la Mia, vaya con ustedes todos los dias de su vida".
