  1. There are many happy puppies in heaven today because their mother has joined them. A T-bone steak was never too good for her dogs. I remember her homemade biscuits for breakfast, the enormous collection of recipes(apparently an Andrade trait), and my children teasing her about watching Saturday night wrestling! She will be missed, but she is free to travel thru’ the heavens with no limitations. Wonderwhatrainshe,Joe,Ben,Cata,Cole,Carmen,Lil’ Cole, Manual, Grandma & Grandpa & the many other family members are traveling on. The train in heaven is fuller than the garden on earth. Thank you for the small words that meant so much, the squeeze of the hand when no one was looking, and needless to say the memories. Enjoy your new found heavenly peace. God Bless You!!!
