    She was my Mom-Mom. She was the person who pushed me on the swing when I was little. She was one of the first people who in which I was greeted by when my mom brought me into the country from were I was born. She is one of the reasons why I am going into The United States Marine Corps. Because I want her to feel proud of me and the family name because I will carry it through battle on the air on land and sea no matter the cost I will not stop until I make her and my family proud. Mom-Mom I love you I no I did not say it much to you in person but I really do and I always will. You will always have a strong place in my heart and you will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace Mom-Mom

    Love:Francisco VanDame

    Judy, Cisco, Raymond,
    Please except my sincere condolences. Mom- Mom had a quirky sense of humor and you never knew when she would sneak up and tickle a grand child. Yes Cisco ,she pushed you on the swing until she said uncle and needed a refreshment. God Bless Mom- Mom!
