Every time I spoke with my Tia Liria she would tell me that she was praying for me and my family and I know she was diligent in this. She was a sweet, caring, humble woman of God and a true prayer warrior. I know that she’s in a better place not burdened by the troubles of this life. I like to think she has joined her beloved son, father and mother as another angel in heaven. I pray that God comforts David, Joe and the rest of the Family.

I did not know Liria, but in viewing the pictures I recognized her husband Joe from our days at Lummus. I'm sorry for your loss Joe. You had a beautiful bride. I remember you working in the angle house while I was in the machine shop.

I thank God for giving me Liria as my sister. I will always remember her as my older sister with whom I shared my childhood and youth in our parents' home. She had a great faith, and she always prayed for me, and my family. I find comfort in knowing that she is resting from all suffering and pain, and that her name is written in the book of life. So long my dear sister! You will be missed! You’ll be forever in my thoughts! Love Maribel

Sis Liria was an angel to our family. She often told us how she had prayed and felt for us. We know she is now in God's presence and in no pain. She will surely be missed.

Para toda la familia mucha fuerza que Dios los acompañe en estos momentos difíciles especialmente a mi primo David y su esposo. Doy gracias a Dios por permitirme compartir con mi tía, aunque fue poco el tiempo supe desde el primer momento lo bondadosa, humilde y Una mujer de gran corazón y llena de amor. Su aura era totalmente maravillosa y ya está con el senor Jesús disfrutando y descansando en paz. Jhoana

Lirita, mi hermanita del alma, Ya no estás aquí en la tierra pero tu alma vive eternamente y en mi corazón jamás morirás. Ahora estás más viva que nunca en mi mente; estás en ella en forma de recuerdos, anécdotas y experiencias que jamás olvidaré. Recuerdo nuestra juventud, cuando nos reuníamos para compartir penas y alegrías; llantos y sonrisas; con tu sabiduría de vida me dabas oportunos consejos y yo me sentía afortunada de tener una hermana mayor como tú. Y aunque, años más tarde, tuvimos que separarnos por la distancia, nuestros corazones permanecieron unidos, compartiendo nuestros sentimientos, siendo confidentes y preocupándonos la una por la otra. Sé que tú amor por mí fue grande y el mío hacía tí también. Recuerdo tus mensajes con palabras dulces y amorosas e imagino tu alegría y tu sonrisa cuando leías los míos porque así me lo hacías saber con tu entusiasmado agradecimiento. Ya no te volveré a ver más físicamente pero tus recuerdos permanecerán y seguirán vivos en mi memoria. Fuiste mi bella hermana mayor, una gran hermana, una parte de mí; y yo fuí tu niña pequeña, tu muñeca, a la que querías y consentías mucho porque así me lo contaste un día cuando me mostraste una foto donde me tenías cogida de tu mano; y este lazo de unión y de amor siempre perduró. Quiero darte las gracias por ese ejemplo de vida que me dejaste: una mujer virtuosa, llena de fe y entregada a Dios. Gracias por el amor y la lucha hacia los tuyos. Gracias por ser como eras: noble, dulce y amorosa. Gracias por preocuparte por mí y llevarme a diario en tus oraciones. Gracias por tus sabios consejos y desear siempre lo mejor para mí. Mi amada hermanita, estarás en mi corazón, en mi mente y en mi alma todos los días de mi vida. Te fuiste arrancando un pedacito de mi alma, pero me queda el consuelo de que éste no es un final, y la esperanza de que algún día nos volveremos a encontrar. "Hasta luego", hermanita de mi vida, te extrañaré y nunca te olvidaré. Te amo y te amaré para siempre.

My dear Ti! I thank God for your life and for the moments we shared together. I will always have you in my heart as a truly woman of God, and the wonderful human being you were. A perfect example of a woman to be followed, one of the sweetest person in the world, always with a smile in your face. We will miss you, but we know that now you are in a better place with God and the rest of the family members that have also left us. Big hug to the heaven!!
