Grandma we will all miss you so much. Thank you for the time I spent with you while I was taking care of you and thank you for putting up with Angels craziness and her always telling you “Come on grandma, come on” when you would get into your chair. It’s going to be so hard to say goodbye to you tomorrow. We love you so much. Love Adrianna, Anthony, Christopher, Anais and Angel

Mom, words cannot describe the pain that I feel from losing you.
I want to thank you and Dad for always being there for me.
I am going to miss the times that we spent together while I was caring for you, like watching your favorite game shows on TV every night and showing you pictures of all the grandkids that you would ask to see they, miss FaceTiming with you.
I will always remember the many conversations that we had.
We all love ❤ and miss you so much .
Rest peacefully, Mom, grandma, great-grandma,and great-great-grandma.
You will forever be in our hearts. ❤❤❤
