My heart goes out to all of you. I know your mom battled with her illness for a long time and now at last she's at peace and home with Our Lord, resting in His loving arms. Even though you will miss her, you know your dad is happy to have her with him. God Bless you and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Rosi McKendrick and Mike Grimes

Dear Hector and Debbie, Our condolences for the loss of your mother, Hector. From her obituary and from having a son and daughter-in-law like you two, she must have been a special woman full of love, faith, and service to others. Yours, Anne and Peter Nicolaou

Dearest Laura and Gutierrez Family, In these passing days, you will have multiple memories to share with family and friends regarding your mother's life. She was a unique individual that impacted those she knew and loved. I had the distinct privilege of sharing a meal with you and your mother on various occasions, and I know that she is in heaven now. I remember having a conversation with my father. He asked me; how will you remember me once I'm gone? My answer; Papa', you will forever be in my heart. So as long as we cherish the moments we were together with our lost loved ones, that's all that matters. We pay homage to them by simply "REMEMBERING." God Bless you and your family always. Most Sincerely, Araceli
