Because Of You I Was Able To Learn To Better My Love For Cooking. I Might Not Be Majoring In The Culinary Arts ,But I Will Always Always Carry On Your Lesson To Do What You Want To Do And To Let No One Say Otherwise.

Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your beloved wife, mother and grandmother. May you be comforted by the words found at Revelation 21:4: "And he will wipe every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The former things have passed away."

We are never prepared for the loss of a loved one, but God is always prepared to help us through that loss. May His presence begin the healing in your heart and soul, and may His love surround you with the comfort only He can give... All of you have a special place in my heart from back in the good old days in your big blue house on the top of the hill on Mier St. With lots of love always

God has decided to return his Rose back into his precious heavenly garden leaving The Pride of Laredo without the fragrance and colorful presence of the best of the best cocinita teacher!! Mrs. Sillas I have no dought in my mind that god has you by his side. I will remember and miss your cheerful and guidance presences. Mr. Sillas and family no words would make a difference nor replace the wonderful guardian angel we all just lost, but keep in mind god's will is never questionable just acceptable. My prayers are with you! Our respectfully Condolences . Uresti Family
