Dearest cousins, Please accept my condolences in this difficult time for you and your family, regrettably circumstances beyond my control keep me from being there with you today. Know that Tía will always be part of our family and in my heart. She always showed her love for my sisters and me. I will always remember her beautiful smile, the sound of her voice and Texan accent, and her kind words. As is said, “when someone becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.” I will always treasure Tía and you three, Tommy, Albert and Rosa. May the good memories see you through the difficult times ahead. My sisters and I will always be here for you to remember the good times. Love, Annie
