SHE LOVED SPENDING TIME WITH HER GRANDDAUGHTERS KAISHA AND ARMANI (HER PRINCESSES), GIVING HER COMPAS NEXT DOOR (BOB AND MARY LOPEZ) A HARD TIME ABOUT “THEM DALLAS COWBOYS” AND ALWAYS KNEW SHE COULD COUNT ON HER GRANDDAUGHTERS, DANIKA AND ALYSHA, TO BE BY HER SIDE FOR ANYTHING SHE NEEDED.  SHE NEVER HESITATED ON SHARING HER RECIPES AND COOKING TIPS WITH CHRIS AND FELICIA.  WE WILL MISS HER APPLE EMPANADAS AND DELICIOUS BISCOCHOS AND BANANA NUT BREAD THAT SHE GAVE OUT TO EVERYONE AT CHRISTMAS.

SHE WAS THE MOST WONDERFUL AND LOVING “MAMA” IN THE WORLD TO ALL HER ELEVEN CHILDREN AND WAS AN AMAZING GRANDMA. SHE WAS A VERY STRONG, OUTSPOKEN AND HARD-WORKING WOMAN, WELL LOVED AND RESPECTED AND WE KNOW SHE WILL BE SADLY MISSED BY MANY.
