Anita, Elaine, Jimmy & remaining family, although time passes & life brings many changes, people who impacted our lives for whatever reason, remain in our thoughts & in our hearts. I met Liria through her dad, Mr. Martinez who worked with my mom, at Kramer Mercantile when I was a young girl. Learning that she was your sister, Anita, immediately resulted in a friendly acquaintance. May she rest in peace & may you know you're all in my thoughts & prayers. God's blessings & sincere condolences, Judy Salazar

Danny, Johny, Munz, and family, my deepest condolences to you all. I loved your mom dearly. She had a huge and heart. I miss her biscochitos, and her marvelous tacos! I can honestly say she was the best cook I've ever known. I'll always have the best memories of your mom and all of you! She left me with some of the best Holiday memories. She showed me such love and I am forever grateful! She was a beautiful lady who treasured her kids!  You'll see her again one day! I'm sure she is dancing with Jesus and all the angels! Now she can rest forever flying high with the angels! Ms. Delgado, you'll be missed until we meet again!🙏🙏🙏👼👼👼❤️❤️❤️
