Her door was always open to lend a helping hand. Everyone loved her cooking. She was known for her homemade tortillas, her famous carne guisada, beans, salsa and potato salad. She enjoyed feeding everyone. Because of her tough love, she was strict in disciplining to instill morals, values, respect, loyalty, dedication, work ethic, unconditional love, and most importantly guided us to use good judgement in faith and family. She will be missed immensely by all.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n
