I, Maria E Ramos, was an Avon representative under Mrs. Garza. I remember her home very nicely decorated in Christmas and the smell of her baking was so delicious. She was a strong woman and a good friend. For some reason I remember her because of this memories this Christmas,not knowing she had past. RIP.

As a child my Aunt loved to teach us Christmas Carrols every year and our recitals were on Christmas Eve for Santa to stop and give us some gifts at my Paternal Grandparents house. Fourth of July parties she would be a Firework Snake Charmer. Her laughter was infectious and her smile would light up a room. I will cherish these memories forever !! I Love you Tia!! May you Rest in Eternal Light !!
