"Hello; I was searching for information on my mother who also had the exact same name as your Tomasa and I came across the page. It touched my heart so beautifully because special persons that come into our lives stay with us forever. My mother, Tomasa Colon, born in Utuado, 1913 - Bronx, NY 2010 was also one that found the good and the beautiful in everyone. Gentle, sweet and always giving a gift no matter how small, to anyone that came to her humble home. Beauty, love, strength and commitment comes in so many forms and from where one would least expect it. It's what make life worth living."

"My Beloved God-Mother & Aunt,
Mi querida Madrina Titi Tomasita, you were a true example of what a devoted and committed aunt and God-mother is and should be. I learned to be a God-Mother and Aunt because of you.
You were always present in my life, from Thanksgiving, Christmas, graduations, family reunions, Wedding and everything in between.
You are now in good health and in the company of Angels, our angels... together with Padrino
Thank you for your wonderful Legacy!"

Amada Tomasa. Cuanta triteza sentimos sobre esta noticia, pero Agustin, tu hermano y yo, Aida, cunada, sabemos que Papa Dios abrio su brazos para recibirte con Jordan a su lado.

"Tomasa was someone that I remember had such a love for life, her smile and gracious ways were often comforting in many family events. One of the memories that I have of her growing up, was her famous coffee cake and her pasteles that were homemade and that everyone looked forward to having at the holidays. She was a pillar of strength and elegance, she will forever be embedded in my heart and soul. May all of those who have left before her, embrace her in heaven. Love  your great niece jessie."

"I remember when Nana was cleaning dads bar in the basement for her 50th anniversary.Dad had alot of umm, eccentric items and she put them in the trash. He was so mad at her at the time but now we all laugh about it. I remember when she called Danny's 3rd grade teacher a "beach" lol. I remember her cooking chicken cutlets with  sides of rice and beans and beans and rice. But most important she will live on in our hearts and will be remembered as a great mother, grandmother, and titi."

"Tomasita was my other mother. I called her Mom. There are just too many memories to list them all here, but here are a few; any time Mini and I had a spat, Tomasa would generally back me up over her own daughter. When I was still single and engaged to Mini, Mom would have me over at her house to eat dinner, so that I would not starve. She looked in my fridge to see a jar of pickles, baked beans and beer.That was it., There was the time she attended small claims court, because she was in a traffic accident , I would drive her to court and we would have dinner in a diner. She told other people that I was her attorney. We had a mock wedding ceremony for her and Roldan in the Floral Park house basement, , and I officiated as the "Rabbi". Mom for all the parties, gatherings, lectures ,dinners and most of all, that you loved me as a "Son' and not just a son inlaw  - THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU !"
