Hilda, Aracelia, Mary Esther, Melissa, Jessica, Sidney and all the family, I would like to express my condolences to all the family on the loss of your mom, grandmother, and great grandmother. Hilda, Melissa, Jessica, and Sidney, you all went above and beyond to care for your mom and grandma. Hilda, Mary Esther, and Aracelia, your dad in heaven must be praising you for the excellent job you did while taking care of your mom. You all did what every daughter should do to care for the person who did so much for you. I am amazed at how Hilda took over when her dad passed. Hilda, you are so blessed to have Melissa, Jessica, and Sidney. The Pendemic was a once in a lifetime nightmare that didn't stop you. Great JOB TO ALL OF YOU. Now I want to say thank you to a terrific person whom I consider a part of my family. Mrs. Diamantina Lopez (RIP), you helped me when I was going through difficult times after my divorce and needed a babysitter. My grandmother had passed and my mom was grieving for her loss. You went above and beyond to care for my baby. I still remember when you would bath Marisa Mo so I didn't need to worry. I always told you how much I loved for being soo good to Marisa. God bless you always.

Dear Lopez Family - My condolences to my cousins and relatives for the passing of my Aunt She was a very special person and would always welcome you with open arms. When we would come to visit from California my Tia would always make me her special mollejas. My goodness she made the best mollejitas! She will be missed dearly. Love Marty Cogley
