My beautiful grandma, I can't believe you're gone. I thank you for showing me what a strong, independent woman looks like. So many cherished memories with you. One funny memory that I'll never forget is when you took me to New York with you and you bought live crabs from one of the street vendor's that they put in brown paper bags. Then we took them home and they fell out the bottom of the bag all over the floor with their pinchers up. I ran on the couch and you were cracking up trying to catch them with tongs. I'll never forget that day! I remember going to your house as a little girl and you taught me how to pray with the Rosary. I remember you kneeling in front of a big Jesus statue and praying before laying down for bed then you'd hang your Rosary around the Jesus statue. I thank you for teaching me that Jesus comes first. You were a wonderful grandma and such a loving GG to my kids. They miss their GG and I miss you bunches. God bless you and see you in heaven one day. Love you my Queens, Queen.

I can't believe my mom is gone, I can't believe I won't hear her voice. I spoke to her everyday. My heart is broken. I use to take her to the salon because I wanted her to look good. She used to say "for what I'm old." I finally convinced her to color her hair from white to light brown. She was so happy with her new look. Look at my mami how pretty she looked.

I wanted to extend my deepest condolences to Mirta and Shirley and the rest of the family. Luz will be missed, she was loved by many people including our family. She was very sweet! I always remember her at family parties making her way to the domino's table to beat everyone in domino's along side of pop, zaida, and Joe. Im sure that when she gets to see pop in heaven, they will have their own dominos tournament. Love you all and we're all here for you guys.. Stay strong!

Happy memories: We took my mom to a Spanish restaurant here in Kissimmee where she met Felipe Muniz who is Marc Anthony's father. She was so happy that day. We had dinner and saw Felipe singing. My mom rushed over to him and asked if she can take a picture with him and he said yes of course.

Mami I will miss you dearly. My heart is broken and I can't believe your gone. I have a lot of good memories and I wish you were still here to make a lot more.

For my mother in law. So, the first time I took her to the casino to gamble I had just started living with her daughter. I wanted to make sure that my future mom liked me so I gave her some funds to play with. She had been happy with me ever since. Moral of story, bribe the mom. Thank you for being and enjoying our travels. Enjoy your journey. Con mucho amor. Your son. Miguel

I remember when my grandma used to babysit me and my cousin Pote in New York all the time and make us avena. I couldn't wait for her to make this for us cause it was my favorite dish to eat. She made it with love. I'll always think of you Grandma when I eat avena. The last time I spent time with you was last year and played Dominoes with you for a few hours and you won everytime. You were so happy I came to visit with you and played your favorite game with you. I'll never forget that big beautiful smile on your face. God bless you. Give my daddy a hug and kiss for me. I know I'll see you again. I love you grandma.
