Beatriz C. Perez, 96, of Laredo passed away March 11, 2020 peacefully surrounded by her children.
She was the beloved mother of Rafael (Sandra) Perez, Sylvia (Ricardo Jose) Benavides and Gloria B. Sandoval.
Beatriz was a life-long resident of Laredo. She will be missed by the many family members and friends whose lives she touched daily. One aspect of her life that made her so special to her family was how much of herself she devoted to her family which was always the most important thing to her. Her children, her brothers and sisters, were especially close to her and that has left a tremendous void in our lives.
Mother, we always loved you as we know you loved and cared for us. There is nothing in the world that could ever substitute for “Mom”. We all mourn this loss, for you kept us together, unified as a family. You led a hard life, always worrying about our well-being before your own. You shed many tears for your children and now it is your turn to laugh and enjoy all the fruits of heaven while we shed our tears for you. Mom, we hope and pray that you are taking advantage of all the beauties you’re experiencing with our Lord, and enjoy everything to the fullest, without holding back. All your pains and sorrows are over and the rest of eternity is yours to live up and enjoy.
We will cry over losing you, as if it is the very least, we can do for your now. Mom, you led a life in which you accomplished a grand goal, that of always being a great and honorable wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother to us all. This is proof of the fact that you were one extraordinary lady, in every sense of the word. We were always the gleam in your eyes, and you are ours. Perhaps it is to late to say it, but we loved you very much. Perhaps we didn’t do enough, but now you’re enjoying more than we could ever give.
She is survived by her children, 9 grandchildren, great-grandchildren, one brother Enrique Cuellar, also numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
