Our mother was a strong and a hard worker but most of all a “cheerleader” She will always be remembered for watching her grandchildren play sports such as: basketball, softball and baseball.  She especially stayed up many late hours watching her Diamondbacks on TV and also watching all the NFL football games.  She was well-known for her cooking especially her “tamales”.  She loved to garden and her yard was always amazing.  Our mom was unique in everything that she did.  She loved all her grandchildren, her nieces, nephews, and her godchildren.  Being the eldest of 8 children, she always took responsibility of loving and helping her siblings.  Mom loved to dance, and listen to music.  She will be deeply missed but our love for her will never be forgotten.
