My memories of Aunt Cris are many. She was the center of our family and kept all of us informed. Anything I needed to know about what was going on, I called Cris. I miss that now and will forever. Many of the values instilled in me today came from Tia Cris A stronger woman was never born. Cris took care of all of us, young and old, now she rests in the best place of all. We will never forget.

Criselda was our neighbor for many years. I always admired her because she made a good life for herself. It seems like she was a strong woman. She was nice and always made people comfortable. Rest in Peace Criselda (was how I always addressed her) Emily Gomez
