Anibal y familia y Chavelita, Con la mano sobre mi corazón les mando un pésame de parte de Gloria y de mí. También reciban sinceros sentimiento de parte de Eduardo. Recibimos la noticia por email, pero desafortunadamente el sistema la entregó a Spam y no me di cuenta hasta hace unos dos días, durante los cuales he recordado las muchas veces que nos reuníamos como niños en San Benito y su inolvidable sonrisa. Un abrazo, Gilberto (PD He tratado de comunicarme por teléfono pero no tengo los números correctos.

Dearest Maria, I’m so very sorry for your loss. You were a wonderful sister and I know she loved you so very much. These losses make me yearn for our Heavenly Home even more. Your beloved sister is celebrating Christmas with Jesus this year. Love you, dear Maria.

My amazing sister in law Gracie Diaz has gone home to our Lord and Savior. She was like a sister to me and was kind, honest, sweetest and loving to me and my children. Her nieces Melinda, Melissa, and Jessica will miss her. While we didn't see her often she was always in our hearts. My son, Edward will be receiving her with open arms in heaven! Rest in peace Cunada! Love, Sylvia and family!
