This memorial website was created in loving memory of our beloved Mama Avelina Torres who was loved by many. We will remember her forever. Please share a story about her, write a tribute or add pictures.  Let's come together to preserve and share the wonderful memories of her life and not just her death.

We had a wonderful grandmother, 

One who never really grew old; 

Her smile was made of sunshine, And her heart was solid gold; 

Her eyes were as bright as shining stars, And in her cheeks fair roses you see. 

We had a wonderful grandmother, And that’s the way it will always be. 

But take heed, because She’s still keeping an eye on all of us, 

So let’s make sure She will like what she sees.

Come to Me

Shared by Neferti Lopez on December 22, 2011
God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be, So he put his arms around you and whispered "Come to Me". With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away, and although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best.

Window Watcher

Shared by Emely Sanchez on December 21, 2011
She always leaned to watch for us
Anxious if we were late,
In winter by the window,
In summer by the gate.
And though we mocked her tenderly
Who had such foolish care,
The long way home would seem more safe,
Because she waited there.
Her thoughts were all so full of us,
She never could forget,
And so I think that where she is
She must be watching yet.
Waiting ‘til we come home to her
Anxious if we are late
Watching from Heaven’s window
Leaning from Heaven’s gate.
