  • It saddens my heart to say my final goodbyes to you Titi. Tears of sadness because you are no longer here physically but also tears of joy because you’re no longer suffering. I admire you so much titi. You are surely unique in your own special way. You left a big piece of our hearts empty. But I know now you can rest in peace.

  • Mom it is so difficult for me to say goodbye. I will miss you so much. You have left an open wound in my heart. I will miss your calls just to ask what I’m doing even though you knew what I was doing. Mom if I could turn back the time to when you were sitting on the corner of the bed and just gave Noel and Me that smile and little when we asked what you were eating. I will always have that last smile in my mind and in my heart. I love you mom so much. Miss you.
