Peps, and the Uribe Family. My deepest condolences on the passing of beautiful Mirtha. She was a beautiful person inside and out. I still remember our trips to San Antonio for our Christmas shopping for our children. Mirtha had a great sense of humor. She always had everyone laughing. She is now resting with Margaret in Gods Paradise! I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to the rosary and Mass as I was diagnosed with Covid on Sunday afternoon. May God Bless all of you and you will meet her again ?

It’s a tremendous loss for the education community. Mrs.Uribe was truly an amazing teacher. She was the kind of educator that wanted her students to succeed and sometimes that meant a bit more work for her but she did it with such kindness and joy. She was the teacher students always looked forward to seeing. I couldn’t be any happier to know I was her student and had the opportunity to learn from her.

My dearest Uribe family, our hearts are left with a void so deep that can only be filled with the remarkable laughter of our beloved Mirta. I was captivated by her personality from the first day our paths crossed. We became family and each other’s shoulder to lean on. She was an amazing teacher who left behind wonderful memories with each and every student she had. Above all, she was the most generous and loving friend I’ve ever had. I will miss her laugh and the way she tapped her feet when she laughed so hard. My heart is broken ? and she takes a piece of my heart with her. Our family sends all of you our most heartfelt condolences. Love ❤️, Anna Santiago
