Not sure what to say?

Tia Josie, you will be forever loved and missed. Even though, I have been away from my roots, for a very long time, every time we got together for whatever occasions, I always made a point to seek you out. You were always very loving, funny and had one hell of a personality. When you see my Mom and Dad, please give them a big hug and lots of kisses from me and tell them I love them. Until the day comes that we will meet each other again. Con much carino...Sylvia, Bob, and Eric.

Paula & I were so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. The wonderful memories you have will last a life time.

Dear Friends:
No words will express the sorrow I feel. Your Mom was one of a kind. She was a friendly and loving person and proud of all of you. My deepest sympathy and love to each of you.

I am grateful to this wonderful woman, that I called “Padrina,” for her presence in my Nana's life. Her strength amazed me and her outspokenness not only humored me but it also inspired me to always say what is on my mind. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you who loved her.

Joyce, Lia & Adrienne: What an extraordinary woman she was...It seemed she was always laughing and we will remember her that way. I know that her absence will be devastating but your love and memories of her will be with you forever....and those of us who knew her will remember her with a smile.

A most extraordinary woman who led a most extraordinary family, we will miss her. To Paul, Joyce and the entire family, you must know how blessed you were. Fina did, indeed, teach us all a thing or two about how to live life and for many, she became our second mother. Our heartfelt prayers go out to you.

Paul, Judy and I were sadden to hear about your mothers passing.We will always remember her wonderful smile whenever we saw her. She always had that unique way to make us feel special. She will be in our thoughts and prayers..Tony and Judy Anello

I will always cherish fond memories of Mrs.Sierra,Paul and family
