I met mary many years ago and adopted her as a grandparent.
She was an amazing woman who touched many peoples hearts.
She watched my daughter grow. Christmas was our greatest holiday as she never expected gifts she would always cry when we brought her gifts dressed as elves and santa and mrs clause. So many memories were made with her and She will be greatly missed.
Condolences to the family.
We all loved her.

So sorry for your loss, Tia is now pain free & home with my Tio Louis & the rest of the family. She was a very strong, willful person. When we would go to visit Tio & Tia in Carrizozo & my mom & dad & tio & tia would play the card game "Dirty Neighbor" oh Lord! If Tia had to pick 5 cards cause Tio slapped down the joker on her, the Look she would give him & she would tighten her teeth, it looked like "Oh Tio you're sleeping on the couch!!!" Those were the best times & great memories with all the family together. I will miss you Tia, but, I know everyone who went ahead of you were there to welcome you home with opened arms.
To my cousins, I pray God wraps his loving arms around all of you & comfort you during this difficult time. We love u more!! God bless you all. Love, your cousin
