  1. Grandma, we were blessed to have you in our lives for so very long. Our memories and your love will stay in our hearts forever. You brought class and grace to our family and we will miss you and your annual “gumbo fest”. Our love is with you forever.

  2. Hi Leonard, Vincent and Stephen, Don’t know if you remember me or not. I was your neighbor around the corner on 12th Ave. and you gave me the name,”Joe.” We grew up playing baseball in the street and basketball at the Catholic school that you attended. I moved away in 1959 and visited with you, Leonard, when you lived in Las Vegas. Vincent came once to Santa Barbara to visit. Anyway, a lot of years ago. Saw your Mom’s obituary in the LA Times. I send you all my deepest sympathies and God bless all the Faustinas.

  3. Your mother is always with you. She is the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street, she is the smell of bleach in in your freshly laundered socks, and she’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re not well. Your mother lives inside your laughter. And she is crystallized in every teardrop. She is the place you came from, your first home; and she’s the map you follow with every step you take. She’s your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you…not time, not space…not even death! –Written by Temple Bailey in 1933
