Just here at work, going through the 'old' entries from My Family that momma would write, the jokes, the smart comebacks, the kind/loving words/advise....etc.

I started to cry on this one...

This is in response to the passing of Danny Vallejo:

yes it must truly be Heaven there but may God forgive me, when it is my time to go home, the first person i wish to see is Ama...may God grant me that wish

Juanita Gonzales - Feb 8, 2005
I have a feeling that both she and Apa will be there standing beside God waiting to greet you and welcome you home.

Lupe Rios Gonzalez - Feb 8, 2005
thank u Juanita....such simple words to say but they say a lot when they come from the heart...Thank You!

Maria Chavez - Feb 9, 2005
I know how you feel - I can't wait to see Dad again but I also want to see Ama & Apa and especially the grandparents that I never got to meet - Dad's parents. That will be awesome. And just between me and you I want to see JFK and ask him "so what really went down?"

This was in response to Beli's post about Daniela's 7th Anniversary:

Lupe Rios Gonzalez - Jan 12, 2005

This is in response to WORD OF THE DAY:

this was a response to Daniela's Mother's Day story:

Lupe Rios Gonzalez - Apr 12, 2005
Thank you mija, i had to read it twice because of the tears in my eyes....you could not have given me a better Mothers' Day gift...I love you too....from near or far, I will always love you and be here for you...

This is a response to Belinda on the same Mother's Day story:

Lupe Rios Gonzalez - Apr 14, 2005
to Beli, mija, i may not always show it or tell u, but i know you love me...it is so true that actions speak louder then words and your actions tell me just how much you love me....yes we argue, but what mother and daughter doesn't...but we do help each other as much as we can..we are always there for each other and i will always try my best to help as much and in any way that i am able....thank you for this mothers' day gift...it means more to me then any material thing....i love you beli and i hope you will never doubt it nor forget it

This is a response to me on teh same Mother's Day story:

Lupe Rios Gonzalez - Apr 14, 2005
Miranda, thank you too for this mothers' day gift...you will never know how much your words mean to me...i love all my kids, but i am Apa's daughter and don't show affection easy...but i love you all with all my heart and soul..i would give my life for you...and yes, it may sound morbid but i would even kill for all of you if i ever had too...all of you are my life, my contribution to this world and my legacy...all of you please never doubt for a second that i don't love you....i am here if ever you need me anytime you need me...now pleaseeeeeeeeeee stop making me cry...lol...love you all with my life
This is in response to my Heave Ho' story from Chicken Noodle Soup book:

Lupe Rios Gonzalez - Mar 7, 2006
lmao....and if any of u ever get a high rise suv it better come equipped with a dang chain hoist lol....or one of those gigantic electric magnets and raise me up bye my leg lol...and u r soooooooo right Miranda PA'YA VAS TU lol

Beli Lopez - Nov 9, 2006 Viewers | Reply to this item Well, I finally got a high rise SUV (w/no chain hoist) and yes we had an episode this past weekend. Both me and Mija were laughing as mom tried to get into my SUV and I said "Heave" we both knew exactly what I was talking about. Mom, kept saying 'It's not funny" however finally after mom got in, we loaded the groceries and started back home, Mom laughed right along with us.

There are sooo many responses funny and sympathetic and heart-felt from momma...These are just a few of so many responses.. I like to go back and reread them as often as I can....I can hear her voice when reading them and her laughter and seeing her face when laughing....I miss her so much...


  1. Dammit, you made me cry again. I think I haven't cried in 12hrs. We're supposed to be happy she's no longer in pain but I'm so selfish that I wish she were here. I do miss her so much and especially when we are together.

  2. I cry way too much here at work, everything i do somehow reminds me of her. Or I can just be sitting here and all of a sudden one of her stories will pop into my mind and i'm a laughing fool. You know when we do get together, she's there with us but it's just not the same to hear her voice and her tell us 'give an old lady a break' or 'vas a ver cabrona'. I miss you momma and i love you! Tell Tia Pat her fizzlefart loves her too. :)
