  7. My heartfelt condolences and prayers to the family and friends of “Maria” as I knew her many years ago. Mary and I knew each other from when we we were 5 or so years of age. Our parents (Pedro Perez and Cuca) were great friends of (Julio and Celcita) and really I believe we were even related. We visited often from Brady and Melvin through early teen years. I have very fond memories of Maria. May God test her soul .

    Pete Perez

    • Pete, as her daughter, I would love to speak to you and know some of your upbringing around my mom. I’m sure you have some very interesting stories to tell.
      Please give me a call when your up for it.
      Corina at 979-703-0785. When ever is good. Just remind me of whom you are.

  9. Our family is a very large one and there is not one of us who does not feel the loss of such a lovely lady. We pray that God gives everyone peace in knowing that our sister is now comforted with no pain in his loving arms. May the Lord bless you all with his love, compassion, and comfort.

  10. For Mary, her children, and grands.
    I loved Mary. We were the kind of friends who could go long periods of time without seeing each other and pick up right where we left off. We could finish each others sentences and often did. I have cherished the memories of us and our children forever. I met all of her siblings except for Pete and was sad as she started losing them. Today the ones who are left and her precious children and grandchildren will share the memory that was uniquely her. This earth contains billions of people, but, there is only one Mary. My heart aches for each of you as you go through this journey called grief. I have been praying and will continue to pray that we are comforted by her memory and maybe an unseen touch. God bless each of you today, tomorrow and always. With love, Frankie and family.
