  1. MABEL WAS A GREAT LADY. HER GROUCHY DEMEANOR WAS WHAT MADE HER FUNNY AS HECK AND IF SHE WAS GROUCHY TOWARD YOU, YOU KNEW SHE LIKED YOU. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE MABEL, YOU ARE DEFINATELY IN A BETTER PLACE.

  2. I didn’t really get to meet Mable the times I was at the house, but if she were anything like her grandchildren Ruby,Puggy and steve,she was a very kind hearted,giving and warm person. I would even go as far to say,Mable is an Angel in heaven and boy is heaven lucky to have her. May God continue to bless Mable and her family.Ruby,Puggy,Steve,thanks for everything you’ve done for Mable!

  3. Mabel has been a part of my family as far as I can remember. She is my brother Andy’s Godmother. I thought it was wonderful that she and my mother, Chole Fresquez, had been friends since they were children. The stories they told of their childhood were so funny. Mabel will be greatly missed.

  4. My memories of my Nana will be memories that will be cherished for a lifetime…The wonderful times we shared, the laughter, and the many stories and lessons she taught me…She was always so full of life and loved life…There were so many things she loved to do, her independence is so noteworthy. She was so smart and so funny, you can’t even begin to put into writing the many accomplishments…She is now at peace and will suffer no more in this world and for this i too am at peace for her…Nana, I love and will miss you, but you will remain in my Heart and Soul forever…Thank you for all that you instilled in me…I will carry your wonderful teachings and love to my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren…I Love You!!! Your Meja Ruby!!!!

Memories of my Grandma “My Nana” The fondest memory of My Nana was the day she attended the most important day in my life My wedding. knowing.regardless of how she was feeling (she was not well) she still got up and danced the night away with so much energy it was incredible. with her determination it reminded me of my child hood days. Strong and determined. That’s My Nana . My Nana has been there for my mom, my brother Jeff and myself. I love you Nana and I will miss you. I hope your dancing in heaven with all your loved ones.
