To Lydia (PeeWee), Oralia (YaYa), and Agustin, Please accept my most sincere condolences on the passing of your beloved mother. Do find solace in knowing that Lilia will be remembered in my daily prayers and may her soul rest in peace. When I read the sad news, many fond memories came back when your mother and my mother were very good friends, living close by in the barrio El Azteca in the 1950s. Every time we went to the J.C. Penney store in downtown Laredo where your mother worked, my mother always looked forward to visiting with your mother. And, in a way, my siblings and I grew up together with the three of you. When we were little, I vividly remember going with my mother and my brother and sister to visit you and Lilia when you lived on the second floor above the store of Don Félix. What beautiful memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. May God give you peace and fill you with joyous remembrances. I am sure the good Lord has her sitting by His side in Heaven. With deepest sympathy, J. Gilberto Quezada

Your legacy lives on with your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews and friends..... i won’t say goodbye because we shall see each other again. Rest In Peace Tia Lilia..... you are loved
