    My Madrina/Ta,
    Im so grateful and honored to have had you in my life! Your presence was truly powerful! You touched so many people with your faith, opinions and generosity. You knew exactly where you stood with her, you either made it, or didnt, no bars held! Im glad you loved me and that I made it!
    I dont know what life will be like without you in it. I know youll be busy with your kids, grandkids and great grandchild, but will you kindly be my guardian angel? Lord knows I need the help!
    Thank you for the wonderful meals, bear hugs, memories, kisses, laughs & unconditional love! You were 1 in a million and Ill never forget you! Unforgettable in every way! I love you Tia Gera! Your hijito (Ill miss you saying that to me, it was music to ears)! Please look over us!
    Roberto Gutirrez

    My dear, sweet, beautiful mother. You were taken from us so suddenly that we didn’t get a proper goodbye, one more “I love you”, a final hug or kiss. You were my world and I couldn’t have been blessed with a more loving, caring mother than you. You truly put your children first all the time and made sure we didn’t go without. You worked hard your entire life, now you may rest in peace. I won’t let a day go by without telling you how much I love you and miss you and I promise to pass on our memories of you to your grandkids and great grandbaby. You will be missed, but I know one day we will be reunited again with Our Lord and Savior. Until we meet again, goodbye and I love you always mom. Your son, Jaime
