Many nieces, nephews and cousins

We would like to thank our friends and family for the continued love and support over the years. To my mom’s loving sisters and brother for their weekly meals, Sunday lunch dates and text/phone calls. Although her illness seems so long, her passing was sudden. Fortunately, we were able to come together quickly and were surrounded by family as she went in peace. Mom has always asked about and spoke of her family. She cared deeply for us all and was especially compassionate of her husband of 60 years.

We would especially like to thank Jessica (Pasing) for the continued love and care she had provided— their 32 years of friendship will never be forgotten.

Peace be with you!

From the family of Carolina T. Romero
