    I remember the garage sales in the convertible. I remember the calming voice. I remember the beaming smile. I remember playing hearts.

    Although mom is no longer with us physically, she will always be with us spiritually. We will keep the warm, happy memories and her adventurous spirit in our hearts. She was a loving wife who stood by her man through thick and thin, a supportive mother who shaped her children into productive and caring individuals, a wonderful grandmother who spoiled and disciplined her grandkids in a unique way, a giving sister who provided comfort and a helping hand, and a fabulous mother-in-law who cared for her children’s spouses and treated us like her own. Rest in peace mom……watch over dad, hold his hand, and let him know that he is not alone.
    We love and miss you! xoxo Estela

    My wife was a very special person; her heart was a mile wide. She loved to shop and garage sale. She enjoyed taking a chance at Blackjack. She liked to travel in small bites. She enjoyed talking to people and sharing herself. She was a loving, intelligent, caring, and supportive partner, soul mate, and wife. She never forgot, but forgave my transgressions. Sue’s concern for my well being was paramount in her thoughts. Though my reason for being, my guiding light has gone out. I will preserver, for her. I will carry on for my family, because that is what she wants me to do. Sue, I have loved you for 48 years. I will love you for eternity. Till we are together again in Heaven, may God bless you and keep you. Pat
