Teresa de Jesus Solis To Mom: Mom you mean the world to us. It’s hard to live without you. You were always by our side through thick and thin. Now when you’re gone, our life is hard to live. It’s hard to breathe. It’s hard to see and it’s hard to think about anything but you even though your love will shine in us forever. It’s still hard not to look for your hand to hold. Even though you’re not here with us in the flesh. We still have you in our hearts and in our memories. We love you forever Mom. We thank the lord for these 85 years of life she was blessed with. Our mother, also known as Mom, Mami, Guela, Tata, Madre, and Chief will be greatly missed by all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and all who knew her. She always saw the good in everyone that she embraced. Our daily talks and “dichos” with her will forever be imprinted in our minds and hearts. Her faith & devotion to our Lord was first and foremost in her life. She gave us all her love, faith, and devotion and our hearts will be broken forever, but we know a mother’s love is forever.
