Diana, I was so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Although we were not able to visit often, as cousins, we always found the time to call every so often, and she was always in my thoughts and prayers. May she Rest In Peace.

I worked with Pina for 15 years at Jones Furs. She was second to none as a seamstress. I was fortunate that she shared her recipe for her meatballs and sauce...the best! I have many fond memories of Pina. She was a sweet and special lady.

Diana, so very sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. I have many fond memories of her from my childhood. She made the best sugared bread dough. Take comfort in knowing that she is now in the hands of her heavenly father, whole once again. Blessings to all.
