My dearest condolences to my uncles, aunts, cousins De Leon. No words can express the difficult times we are going through right now. All that remains is to reminisce and remember all the happy memories that we were able to attain while Aunt Grandma Elisa was with us. I will always remember Tía Elisa fondly. Her next to my grandma Aurora will always be joyful and laughing. I remember every time I would call Grandma Aurora's cellphone and Tía Elisa would be with her always laughing it off. I have no doubts now that she has departed, that she is now having the greatest time keeping up with Grandma Aurora. Big hug to everyone. Yours Truly, Gerardo Enriquez (son)
