To Gloria, Serrina, and all of the Torres Family,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Ramona. She was such a sweet lady and always looked so graceful. She and your dad Lalo were in my wedding many, many years ago. I was new to Artesia and they both made me feel welcome and always greeted me with a smile and a hug. I pray for God's comfort for all of you during this time. With love, Karen

Sorry for your loss of Ramona. By the obituary and the type of person Yolanda is I know she was a special person that is going to be missed dearly.

Yolanda, our deepest condolences go out to you and all your family during this difficult time. I know your mom was a beautiful person because of the great person you are. Even though we know our loved ones have moved on and we will see them again, the grief is great but will ease a little at a time. Our prayers are with you and we're here for whatever you need.
