Grandma, remember that we are always here for you. Grandpa left you in good hands. We will keep his humor alive and keep making jokes at inappropriate times like he did. We love him very much and will remember him always.

To the Vela Family, my condolences to you and your family. I met Mr. Vela, in my teen years when met my best friend Imelda, his daughter, he would always make us laugh, I will never forget that. May you rest in peace. You will be missed, and by the grace of our Lord we will see each other again when it's time to depart from this earth. God is good and God bless the Vela Family.

Tia Lupe, Irene,Imelda and Idalia, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. No matter how prepared we may think we are it is never easy to lose a loved one, especially a parent. I will forever treasure the memories of our childhood and growing up with my "sisters". I am so grateful to have been able to spend some time with you all this summer, even if it was a very short time. I love you and wish I was with you at this time.
