She always had a great attitude and believed in the mission whole heartedly, I am sure she will be missed not only by her family & friends but her work family as well.

Well family, I would like to start off with how amazing of a human being my aunt was. She had 4 amazing kids and they are all still amazing individuals. Love you guys and I’m truly sorry for your loss. Your in my thoughts daily and I can’t express the sadness that over comes me with all the great memories of your mom. Thank you for sharing her and allowing to also enjoy her as a human, aunt, and a mom figure. She leaves behind a legacy in her heart of gold. I will always remember your mom as a person of integrity, even when she needed help most, she wouldn’t ask for it. She never wanted to put anyone out. She was such an amazing auntie. I love her and you all with all that I am. You guys all remind me of her anytime I talk to you even more now then before. But maybe together as a family we can overcome the anguish and the sadness of her loss. She still lives through all of you. I love all of you very much extremely sorry for your loss. Know that I am here for you all. Love lil cuz Rosa
