I will always remember the times you welcomed me and all the great food I enjoyed in your loving home. When you used to come around your son's office to fix the little garden in the back lot, your cute voice and the times we laughed trying to communicate with each other since we spoke different languages. Your family became part of me a long time ago. God bless you and your Family.

Love you all and will always consider you my family.

Sincerely, Jessie

Mom, my heart aches for you. You were such an amazing person and you will truly be missed. When God created mothers as the special people they are, he had you in mind. You were truly one of those blessed and good people who always thought of others before yourself. Your passing is beyond words. I will always remember the family gatherings, your delicious meals, and your strong family values you instilled in your children. I am so blessed that I had the opportunity of knowing you and I know heaven just received one of its most special angels. I have learned life-long lessons through your kindness and in your memory, I will walk through life with a bigger heart. All my love, your daughter-in-law, Leona
