  1. Dear Cousins, Titi Laura (mi chulita) will be greatly missed; she had this special gift of making everyone feel like they were the most important person to her. May your faith in the Lord trust that she is where needs to be now – in a much better place, and at peace. Love, hugs & kisses to all. ___________________________________ Goodbyes are not forever And nor is it the end When angels come to call away A loved one or a friend The empty place that’s left behind Within the world we know Reminds us just how brief a stay We have before we go So when it’s time to bid farewell To one we’ll deeply miss Let’s just say we’ll meet again And promise them with this The true gift is that love remains Although we now must part… Until forever and beyond I’ll keep you in my heart. Bendicion!

  2. I’ll love you always Abuela. Siempre en mi corazon. Never forgotten. To my family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Laura was a very good friend of my Grandma Nieves. Our condolences to her family. You are all in our thoughts.

  4. My deepest sympathies to Rosa & her family at this time of loss. I will remember you all in my prayers… Now that I am gone, remember me with smiles and laughter. And if you need to cry, cry with your brother or sister who walks in grief beside you. And when you need me, put your arms around anyone and give to them what you need to give to me. There are so many who need so much. I want to leave you something — something much better than words or sounds. Look for me in the people I’ve known or helped in some special way. Let me live in your heart as well as in your mind. You can love me most by letting your love reach out to our loved ones, by embracing them and living in their love. Love does not die, people do. So, when all that’s left of me is love, give me away as best you can. ~ Author unknown

  5. Our prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Your mom was a great friend to my mother (Chen) and John’s mom (Chia). God bless you and your family. Maria & John Cardona
