I just found out today of Raquels passing. We graduated together in 1962 and she has been a dear and beloved friend since then. My wife, Nena, and I used to see her often at Mass at St. Patrick. She was loved by many. A truly nice, beautiful person with a beautiful soul. I always search the Obits in the newspaper, but Irma Ayala told me the obit did not make it to LMT. Irma also told me she had a daughter and son and from what I see in the picture she also has a beautiful grandson. I can alsmost guarantee you that she went straigjt to HEAVEN! I will still pray for her soul everyday, M-F for the next few years. I was blessed to have known her and I am so sorry I did not attend her funeral! My most sincere apologies and I hope Raquel will accept my and my wife's apologies. With all our LOVE.

Raquel was a terrific Mom to our two little babies. She was always buying things for them. She was a great daughter, sister to her 2 brothers and two sisters. She was also a great friend to the people she knew. Also to give help it one needed help. Raquel, thank you for giving me two beautiful babies, Bonnie, Tinito. And thank you for being part of my life for a few wonderful year's. And thank you for giving me three grand kids, and a great grand Daughter, just a few weeks ago. May You Rest In Peace.???

Sending my warmest condolences and sympathy for Raquel’s family and her friends. I had the honor and privilege of working with her at legacy U.S. Customs Service back in the 80’s. I truly enjoyed her fun and laughter for many days. RAQUEL had zest for life, was a go-getter, and loved so many people along the way! She was a classic lady with grace and charm! I will wear red and white to honor her even though I cannot attend her service. Sending my prayers and deepest sorrow!
