"I met Mrs Tejada in the early 60's before Tony & Karen were married. I remember that she was very active in the American Legion & she worked in Hayward. I also remember that she enjoyed dancing with her Jimmy.

She was also a devout Catholic and back in the day, was also active in her church; she was a lady with a very strong faith.

I remember having a slept over at her house in Livermore, being I was one of Karen's bridesmaid. This was the day before Karen was to marry my brother Tony. Although she had some anxiety the night before, she still managed to be such a kind & hospitable person. She made you feel welcome in her home!

In all the years I've known this lovely woman, it was always her demure that clarified that she's our Mz Daisy. It's the way she presented her self with such poise, her hair always done up & always well dressed with such elegance. She was also a very caring person; whenever we had an opportunity to talk about life (may it be at Michelle's house or at Karen's), she was always an earful. She would then give you words of wisdom. She was very good at this. I will certainly miss those small talks.

Ok Mz Daisy, I am sure you were chauffeured as Jimmy greeted you with opened arms & opened your limo for you. He must of tipped his cap to you & said, "about time!"

It's not good bye but Adios until we meet again! We will do our Fireball "cheers" as we did on your 90th bday! Thanks Juan for that memorial picture you posted on FB!

God bless & we will miss our Angel!

"The beautiful pictures show her beautiful spirit. Antoinette was kind , nurturing, welcoming and spread love to all of us. She always had a hug and smile for me and for all.  It was just comforting to be in her presence. The Mora home with 4 generations is an amazing home. She will be missed immensely.  She made the world better with her life."
