We say goodbye to a very lovely lady. She will never be forgotten. She was a very special friend of my mother (Mary Cota) and our family. I remember when i turned nine, she and her husband, Santos bought me a birthday cake. We all celebrated with my family. That was in 1949. Yes, she will be missed. To her family, I wish you all comfort,peace, and hope in this time of sadness.
