"Thinking of you Es...Sitting here acknowledging how much you've taught me especially cooking. I recently learned how to make pasteles just because I knew how much you enjoyed eating them. I even made sure to eat all the masa off the paper just because that's just what you would do. I sit here thinking of us and all the memories we share... I feel you in my presence especially when I crave something you loved to eat or when I just simply say your name because you are always the topic of my discussions. I've been thinking of you so much lately so I wear your shirt to sleep... I said your name without intending to and just started one will understand what you meant to me. You were more than just my friend's mother or neighbor, you were a best friend when i needed you most, my adviser when i needed advice, a healer when I was sick but most of all you loved me... I love you and I'm missing you like crazy.

I hear you singing this song to me every time it plays and I get so happy.

Voy a reír, voy a bailar
vivir mi vida la la la la
voy a reír, voy a gozar
vivir mi vida la la la la

"oh God another year you are gone for your birthday.  This year I remember with smiles and a sad heart.  How I miss you each day, life is not the same without my Sister.  I talk to you often, do you hear me, I know you do.  I wish you could answer back in voice, but you do in a breeze, a moment of aha, Esther would say or do this.  I feel you around me and that comforts me in more ways than you can imagine.  My heart stopped, my heart cried, my soul has been lonely since you left for your eternal life.  Love You always and more each day."

"My heart beats heavy for you Es, so heavy that I constantly find myself searching for you in my dreams. I wish you were hear! Although, I know that before your passing we hardly kept in touch but that's how God intended it to be, you was doing you and I was doing me...I've always  kept you in my prayers. Now I sit here with you in my mind wishing I can update you on my life...I guess I can tell you spiritually til then just know that I will forever be grateful to you and I love you dearly."

""If Roses grow in Heaven"

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.

Tell her that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away"

"You were there when we took our first steps,
And went unsteadily across the floor.
You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided,
Until our steps took us out the door...

You worry now "Are they ok?"
Is there more you could have done?
As we walk the paths of our unknown
You wonder "Where have my children gone?"

Where we are is where you have led us,
With your special love you showed us a way"

"Dear Mom, I said a prayer for you
to thank the Lord above
For blessing me with a lifetime
of your tenderhearted love.

I thanked God for the caring
you've shown me through the years,
For the closeness we've enjoyed
in time of laughter and of tears.

And so, I thank you from the heart
for all you've done for me
And I bless the Lord for giving me
the best mother there could be"
