CINDY GONZALESNORIAS, TX
My sincere sympathies to Mercedes’ family. Pauline worked for my family for many many years. I regret I will not be able to go to the funeral. My husband is scheduled for surgery.
You were a constant figure in my childhood and adult life. and your loving and kind spirit lives on in your children and grandchildren. Although my heart aches because God called on you to be in Paradise with Him, my heart is smiling and is rejoicing because you are with your mother, father, brothers and sisters and you are whole ONCE AGAIN. You were like a second grandmother to me and for your love and kindness, I am eternally grateful. Hasta pronto mi querida tia y que vuela libre el en paraiso por siempre.
