Dear Andrea, Mom never stopped loving or thinking of you. She cared for you as one of her own. There is a picture of you and mom sitting in church at Templo Bethel, it is in a video we shared at the funeral. It is still in Dovin's Obituary page of Isabel. We hope that you are doing well.

My heart aches to hear this news. I am truly sorry for your loss. In this short message, I would like to offer your family my deepest and most sincere condolences. It is never easy to lose a parent, no matter your age. I pray that the Lord may bring peace and comfort to your family during this time of grief. I will always remember Hermana Isabel as the beautiful woman of God she was and she will always be in our hearts. I met Hermana Isabel at the age of 9 years old in Templo Bethel. She was truly a woman of God. Isabel taught me to pray, to seek the Lord, and most importantly to build a relationship with God. She believed in me and taught me that how the Lord saw me was more important than how others saw me. Isabel took me in as one of her own. On the weekends and summer, she will pick me up and take me with her to her home. In her home, we would pray, read the bible, cook, water the plants, and go visit her daughter Mary. Isabel loves shopping and so did I. So when she wanted to go shopping we will always go with her daughter Mary. One of her favorite stores was Jcpenny so the mall was the place to go. She brought so much joy to my life. She was the Abuela that I always wanted. I wish I could have told her that when she was still alive. I have so many beautiful memories with her that I never imagined that beautiful memories can be painful too. Isabel brought light to my life and even though she may be gone her light will forever remain in my heart. I am honored and blessed to have known Isabel Baez Ramos. She was truly a blessing in my life and I will miss her very much. May God give her eternal rest. I love you Isabel ~ REST IN HEAVEN~ Andrea J Maldonado.
