Not sure what to say?

Grandma, it was a blessing having you as my grandmother. From the mornings you would take me to school and have breakfast waiting for me, to the times I helped you remember where your car was while we ran errands, to our field trips around town, summer vacations and our time shared in your beautiful garden. You always made me feel so good, and as a child taught me right from wrong in a firm yet gentle manner. I have so many fond memories of our time together which will always live strong in...

Betty and Jr. I was so sadden to here of your loss. Betty, it's difficult right now, but, as time goes by you will only remember the good times you had. Smile, your mom will always be there by your side.
Much Love and God Bless, Mary Lou Avila Davis

"Sweet Sixteen"

For my beloved Mother. You would of been so happy yesterday with all the family together. Love Karen

Our times together! How will I endure?

As a little girl we walked together downtown and passed Superior Dairy. I had wanted an ice cream but all you had in your pocket was a nickel. You gave it to me and said, "You may as well have this because I can't buy anything else with a nickel." Those were the hard times that mom had to endure. (Actual Fact)


In 1945 Grandma took this picture for Grandpa during World War 2. She missed him so much while he was in the US Navy stationed in the Western Pacific.

Grandma and me.

Grandma always had a sense of humor. She called me,"Baby Wen" my entire life. She always told me to "go to college, support yourself, and never get married!" See you in Heaven!

Mom, you will always be my mom and not just my mother-in-law cause, of the bond that we had and how you accepted me from the begainning you made me feel like a daughter. What we shared and and all the wonderful times we shared togather will all ways be embedded in my heart. You'll never be forgotten for you will continue to live in our life forever. Rest in peace til our time to be rejoined again in heaven..Love you Mom, Sally
