Al fin conseguiste lo que anhelabas. Siempre fuiste dura contigo misma. Trabajaste día y noche para mantener a tu esposo e hijos; aunque la niña nunca llegó. A pesar de ello, las hijastras no quisiste. ¿De dónde obtienes esa fuerza? De tu herencia portuguesa y borincana que nos explica nuestro deseo de superarnos. Pensando en aquellos días tan difíciles, recuerdo cuando no teníamos calefacción durante los inviernos de Waterbury. ¡Cuántas veces caminábamos a la escuelita de Walsh durante mañanitas congeladas! La estufa de madera en el sótano que calmaba los gritos del perro para que lo dejaran entrar. La vieja vecindad ya se fue y aquellos tiempos también han desaparecido. El dolor de tu condición ya se ha ido, de igual manera las preocupaciones (Eclesiastés 9:10) ¡Qué tristeza, mantuviste distancia y aún así respetábamos tu decisión! Nos hará falta tu cafecito y el bocao' de pegao' con tu gran sentido de humor que nos hacía reír. Nos criaste bien, gracias a ti somos educados, con buenos modales, además tomábamos tu palabra a pecho y no sólo cuando fuera conveniente. Por tanto, mucho de ti estå en nosotros todavía y hacerte orgullosa era nuestro gran deseo. Nuevamente, todo salió como deseabas.

You lived the life that you wanted. You were always tough with yourself and worked day and night to support Carlos and us four boys - the little girl never came. The lovely daughter-in-laws that came latter you didn't want. Were did that toughness come from? Your Portuguese & Puerto Rican heritage explains our drive to always do better. To reminisce on those days... it was so hard…there were times when we didn't even have heat in those cold Waterbury winters. How many times we would walk to Walsh Middle School during those crisp frozen December mornings. The little wood stove in the basement would calm the dogs' howl to be let inside. The old neighborhood is gone and it seems to me that those times have just faded away. The pain from your condition has stopped as well and you don't need to worry anymore. (Ecc. 9:10) Sadly you choose to keep your distance but we too respected your choice. We will miss your "cafecito" and "el pegao" and that crazy humor that would make everyone laugh so much! At least you taught us well and we took your words to heart and not only when it was convenient. So, a lot of you is still in us to make you proud was our delight. Again, it worked out just the way you wanted.
