To our Pena and Diaz Family, our deepest condolences on the loss of my sister-in-law, Petina. It is very painful when our loved ones depart from us, but God is always there for us giving us strength to carry on. May Petina Rest in Peace.

In Memory of Mrs. Peña and Condolences to the Family ? Remember Me (auth unknown) Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow, But remember me in every tomorrow. Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles, I’ve only gone to rest a little while. Although my leaving causes pain and grief, my going has eased my hurt, and given me relief. So dry your eyes and remember me, not as I am now, but as I used to be. Because, I will remember you all, and look on with a smile. Understand in your hearts, I’ve only gone to rest a little while. As long as I have the love of each of you, I can live my life in the hearts of all of you. Rest in Heaven Mrs. Peña

Grandma, you will be missed but never forgotten. Agustin was very blessed to have met you and see how beautiful of a person you were. He gained a beautiful angel who will be sending him lots of love! He will always have your songs that you sang to him forever in his heart. Marisol and I will cherish everything you did for us. We love you grandma and we’ll forever keep you in our hearts.
