Doña Gloria was an amazing sweet lady and so talented in her everyday chores (cooking, gardening and crafts) my mother enjoyed talking with her and so did I! You all took great care of her and even though she'll be missed take comfort in knowing that now she's under God's special care! Just know that she's another angel :innocent: up in heaven watching over all of you! I'll keep you and your family in my prayers :clap::skin-tone-3:!

My condolences to the Sanchez and Velez family. And to my friend and neighbor Lenny Velez. It so hard to lose a mother, the heart is sad. But you have beautiful memories of times you have shared together. We only have one biological mother. She has completed her journey here on earth. Her home now is heavenly. No more suffering, pain or tiredness she has to endure. May your heart be comforted by Jesus.Your friend,Lillian
