You and grandpa were the glue that held our family together. The love that bounded is together. The love that kept us going each and every day. You and grandpa loved each and everyone of your kids and grandkids. The love you guys instilled in our will live on forever. I know these words are something you would tell all of us right now as we navigate through I am lying next to you, awake now while you sleep,
For death has just released me, yet in your dream you weep.
If only you could see me, so peaceful and serene,
But you must live a little more and carry on the dream,
A dream from which one day you'll wake and see me by your side,
And know for sure that I'm still here and that I never "died."
So now go on, be strong and look for me in wondrous things,
In the quietness of starlight and the warmth that sunshine brings,
And hear my voice to calm you, to say that it's all right,
For I'm only here beside you, whispering in the night.
Of course you'll cry, you'll miss me, your very soul will ache,
But I am here, a breath away, waiting for you to wake,
So know that life is just a dream of love and fleeting pain,
And know I'm waiting by your side to love you once again.
Te Amo para siempre❤️

Grandma. There really wasn't a dull moment in our lives growing up with you and Grandpa always being there for us grandchildren. We have had some really good times and some of the best times. You will truly be missed and will always hold a place in my heart. I will love and remember you always. Your first grandson - Ricky.

May you rest your soul in peace Mom, I love you so much and will miss every day until the day I meet you again in heaven. You were the glue that held us together, so brave, protective, caring, funny, drove us crazy sometimes but your love for your family was amazing. I will carry you in my heart until we meet again.

My heart goes out to you and your family. I only knew your Mom from her visits with you at Lake in the Woods. She was very sweet with a wonderful sense of humor. May she Rest in Peace.
