Grandma.. this has been the hardest thing we’ve ever had to deal with. We love you so much and can’t fathom a life without you. You’ve raised us all and taught me (Natalie) how to cook and be a good wife and mother. If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have such an amazing son. You helped us grow so much. It’s because of you that we’re the people we are today. I don’t know who I’ll call for recipes anymore.. or who to call when I need some good chisme. I miss you so much it hurts. Please tell everyone in Heaven I said hello. Including Grandma Pancakes and Uncle Gilbert. Rest In Peace my sweet angel.

We love you Mom, and we're gonna miss you so much. You were our glue that held us all together. Our holidays & even just our everyday living is going to be so different without you. Our hardest days are ahead of us, & don't know how we are gonna move on with this big void in our lives, but we know we have to for dad & each other. The only comfort I get in all this, is that I know you are up there in God's loving arms celebrating with your only beloved son Gilbert. We will all be together again someday, until then, May you now Rest In Peace my beautiful mother.
Love & Miss You,
From your loving daughter & son-in-law
