Tia Aurora was a kind, caring and lovely aunt. We will always cherish the memories that we have of her. We will miss her very much, but our comfort is that one day we will see her again.

Sister Orive will be dearly missed. She was a great woman of God. She always wore a smile on her face. When we lived close to her house I felt like she was feeding the whole neighborhood. Every time someone would come in to her house she would greet you with a smile and hand you a plate of food. I loved her dedication towards each of her children and the church. She would always say the right thing to each of her children as they left for school or work every morning. I love sister Orive because she was part of the village that helped raise me. She will be always in my heart. Love you.
