It’s been a year since you left. I can’t believe it only seems like it was all yesterday

I don’t know what it is but I’m always sad and depress

I love you with all my heart

I couldn’t stand to live another day without you
I sit in my room at night and think why the hell I couldn’t go with you

I wanna leave and go be with you because I can’t stop thinking about you

I know its been one long year but it seems like yesterday!! Your loved always by husband Juan Andrade, sons: Larry and Paul, daughters Marlo, MaryAlice, Marie, Marina, also many niece, nephews, grandchildren, sisters, brothers. We miss you also and always!! Rest in peace!!

It has been one year since Jesus called you home. The memories you left with us will live on in our hearts and minds and will last until we meet again. One year and we have a river of tears with diamonds that sparkle at the bottom, just like you. Mom, there is no life without you. The one bright light at the end of the tunnel is dim and may not shine bright again. Never a day goes by that we don’t think about you. Your witty ways, your mischievous smile, and that twinkle in your eyes. Mom, we miss all the family gatherings, the laughter, all the joy you brought to the whole family. Mom, without you, nothing is the same. Just know this, you did not go alone. All of our hearts went with you. Your loving children: Larry, Paul, Maklo, Mary Alice, Marie and Marine. Heavenly Father, help us to understand the mystery of eternal life.

It’s hard to realize that you are gone
I sit here and think of you from dusk to dawn.
You left me so sudden I still don’t understand.
You were always there when I needed a helping hand.
I always knew that someday God would take you home.
I just didn’t expect to be left alone.
Everyone seems to be handling it very
Although I’m quite inside I just want to yell.
I always catch myself wanting to cry.
God you took her, I want to know why.
I know she’s not suffering and resting in peace.
I wish you wouldn’t have gotten sick because
I didn’t want her to leave.
When days are gloomy she made them bright
When it was dark she made me see light
She always wanted the best for me
I didn’t listen back then but now I finally see.
She used to take me places to eat. When I liked
a boy she made sure we meet.
Through all my problems she would help me solve.
Even if I didn’t want her to be, she was always involved
She helped me when I was down. She’d make me
smile and take away my frown.
She’d listen to me complain and cry
I wish she was still here and that’s no lie.
The way I feel for her will never fall apart.
GOD please tell HER she has a SPECIAL place in my HEART.
Love Always,

In loving memory of our father and husband.
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.

So he put his arms around you and whispered come to me. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away, and though we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating with gentle hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best.

Wife Connie DeAnda, daughters Rosie Luna, Lydia DeAnda, Lety DeAnda, Faith Perez, Krystal DeAnda Pulido; sons, James DeAnda, Ruben DeAnda; son-in-law Manuel Garcia; 13 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.


of my brother & sister

Our brother left us in the year of 1999, our sister in 2000, that was to much to bear, but God seen us through.

I’m so glad to have had you both in our lives. You both seem to have what it takes to keep us on our toes.

When I’m blue, you bring happy times our way. When things get where you just can’t pull the load, someone in a whisper, oh yes you can. We seem to think its two of God’s guardian angels.

I know both of you have everything all a glow, just the way you did for us.

We thank God for everything for letting us have you in our family as long as he did. Don’t ever forget that we love you both, now and forever.

This is from all of us. Mother, Bobby, Paula & Celle.
