Abuela, I'm still in shock about everything. It all just seems like a nightmare that we all cannot just wake up from. Seeing my daughters looking at you and crying because we will no longer hear, see, or touch you tears us apart. Lilo even got close to you and gave you her forehead to receive a kiss from you but she looked so clueless when she did not get one from you like she always did (that definitely broke my heart even more). I'm just waiting to get a phone call, a text, a message on FB, or for you to pop up at my house or my job but it seems like I'm be waiting for ever. I love you and I miss you so much! Please say hi to my dad for me and give my son a hug kiss and hug! I love you Abuela !

I will miss you every day mami. I'm lost right now after 2 days without hear your voice and receive the "Dios te bendiga" from you. God called you but never told me how to handle this huge pain for your absence. Descansa en los brazos de Nuestro Dios mamita linda.
