CandleWords cannot describe how many amazing fun memories I have with your mom with your grandma.
I believe my fondest memory that I will treasure forever is when she opened her home for me to stay while we both awaited the birth of our grandson Tommy. The countless hours we spent laughing enjoying each other's company the talks we had the amazing food she cooked I will forever treasure these memories.
The countless times that she made Tortillas for us and laughed and laughed because side by side Danny or not I kid make them the way she did or make them taste the way she made them taste
And many times we stand in our backyard enjoying each other's families Isaac and Antonia Danny and I and all the kids many time Laughing playing games watching fireworks.
Our many blessings and prayers for the whole family and her countless number of friends today
rest in peace Antonia
