Dear Great Grandma,
Hearing that you passed as I was on my way to see you broke my heart. But knowing your in a better place fills that heart ache. From playing badminton and looking at beautiful flowers to going on my first cruise with you, those memories I will cherish forever. I love you forever and always
Love one of many amazing grand babies

Losing you is bitter sweet. I will miss our silly times together but I also know you are watching over us and longer in pain. You mean so much to me and have always been there. I will cherish every laugh and all the dancing we have done over the years. I love you Abuela!! I will forever carry you in my heart until we meet again.

I remember as a kid going to Ohio to visit and I had gotten this clown toy that was a police and would roll around making noises and she would imitate it. I remember her pancakes.ime not one for eating pancakes but abuelas I loved and they had chuncks of banana.

Mom, I know you are in heaven, at peace and no longer suffering. I thank you for all you've done for me throughout my life. I thank you for the many beautiful memories I hold so dear in my heart. I thank you for being my best friend and for honor of taking care of you these past 16 years. I Thank you for loving me. I love you so very much and miss you with all my heart. You will always be in my heart and in my thoughts. Mom, it gives me comfort to know you are most likely singing, dancing and laughing, as you always did with me. I cherish those precious moments. Until we meet again, dance and rest in heavenly peace.
