I will always remember her smile and kindness to everyone she knew.Aunt Mary, you are gone but not forgotten. You will forever be in my heart.

  4. I feel very lucky to have known Mary. From day one she treated me like I was one of her own. One of my fondest memories was probably the first time I really met her. It was Thanksgiving 1999 and she broke the ice with me by making me carve the Thanksgiving Turkey. I was honored to do so and have done it ever since. It has been an honor to witness the LOVE and Devotion that she and Jacob have shared with one another. They say a love like thiers only exists in the movies but I know now that it happens in real life and beyond this life. To her husband Jacob, you are a shining example of a man that took his vows to heart and to God, it was amazing watching you take care of your true love. Last but not least to my wife Cecilia and Aunt Rebecca your unselfishness and determination to do everything you could do to help Mary on the day to day was truly remarkable. The love you have for her is indescribable. I love you MARY AKA “Big Grandma” you will be greatly missed.

  7. Uncle Jacob & Family, I am so sorry for yor loss of our precious Aunt Mary. I feel very blessed to have been able to see her just a few days before she left us to be in heaven. I will always cherish the memories I have of Aunt Mary. All the summer trips to vist in California. The girls shopping trips to the mall and the Redondo Beach Pier. The cook outs in your back yard and at grandma’s house when you came to vist in El Paso. Especially I am honored that you were both my “God Parents” and were there to celebrate with me at My Quinceniera and My Wedding Day. Those memories will be with me forever. Not so long ago having lost someone very special, I know how hard it can be not to have them with you everyday. What keeps me going is the love of my boys and family. That keeps the memory of our loved ones alive. You have to take it one day at a time and don’t keep your feeling bottled up inside. Remember, I am here for you.
