|Let the memory of Nieves be with us forever|
"I will forever miss Mami. There are truly times when we wish our loved ones would be immortal. I will miss her smile, her wit and intelligence. I will especially miss going to the theatre with her. She brought the arts into my life at a very young age. Rest in peace, Mami and be with Papi again."
"A total lady in the old fashion way. Always respectful of others and very loving of her family. Just an amazing person that left an impact on all that knew her. Like all immigrants, she and Emilio worked hard to achieve the American dream, and they did. We will always remember her with a smile and intelligent conversation."
"Such a beautiful, intelligent, and loving woman. Amazing fond memories of her as a child coming to visit and play at your house!! As I got older, I began to realize just how incredibly cultured, educated and well read she was. Writing this I also remember your dad, and how he made us all laugh! Such an incredibly loving man, how lucky you all were to have them in your life. They are at last together again!
God bless you Giselle and Alina. May God shine his perpetual light on Nieves and Emilio!"
"How lucky and blessed to have had such a loving and attentive mother. I remember when I was younger that Tia knew so much about so many things. I used to brag to friends that Tia knew or could communicate in so many languages. Everyone was impressed including me. I feel lucky that I got a chance to see Tia a few time in the past few years when she would come down to visit you. Thank you for including me with your visit with her and inviting to have dinner with you. Also, the time she came to my house and have dinner with us at home. I am glad she had a chance to know it. I will truly miss her but there is comfort in knowing how fully she lived life and that she could give such wonderful memories to all of you. I love you all very much. Diana"
"I can't express what a wonderful mother she was, or how much I will miss her. But I have not entirely lost her. Her love is still with me, and I know it always will be. Vaya con Dios, Mami."
Have a suggestion for us?
