My dear mother, I am the woman I am today because of you. You made me strong, independent and hardworking. You taught me to never settle for less. I only hope to be half the mother you were. Your grandbabies will always remember how much you loved them. Neither time or reason will take away this pain. I know someday I will be at peace, you are no longer suffering or hurting and that will keep me going until the day that my heart heals.  Me dejó con un gran dolor mamita pero se que por fin está descansando de tanto dolor.  Por siempre la tendré en mi corazón, hasta que nos volvamos a ver mi madrecita. La amo y extraño tanto, más de lo que pueda explicar.   – Elizabeth 

There are no words to describe how much my mom means to me. She will always be my motivation to keep on going with my life. I would not be the woman that I am today if it wasn’t for her. I am very blessed to have been able to have given my mommy a grand baby, and gotten the chance to meet her. She has taught me how to be a great mother and I will forever appreciate everything she has done for me. Siempre te voy a quierer y siempre vas estar en mi corazon.     – Jennifer

To Mami, I will always remember how strong you were. Even with all the pain you felt over such a long period of time, you stayed strong to hold our family together. You woke up everyday to care for all of us. You would remind me everyday that I am a valuable person and I should never settle for less. I feel peace knowing that you are no longer suffering. I don’t know how I can continue without you being by my side.  Por siempre en mi corazón. Siempre recordaré lo momentos bonitos con usted. Ahora esta descansando en paz con Dios y mis abuelitos. La amo bastante y la extraño.       – Cristal
