Nuestra Querida Madre, Abuela, Bis-Abuela, Hermana, Tia y Amiga.
Our loving Mother, Grand-mother, Great-Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and friend. She loved as hard as she worked. She worked hard to raise and educate her children to live a better life filled with love, laughter and a true love for God, religion, and purpose. One of her most important words of advice to her children was “Just try to do better”, She never knew a stranger, gave willingly and would go without to help anyone in need. A favorite saying was “If the Lord is willing” and lived by the Golden Rule. She was a special breed who only shared love and can never be found again if you looked for a thousand years. Socorro is definitely our generational blessings to the roots of her family tree that continue to grow and grow.
