    Sorry for your loss Cindy. Your mom was a treasure. I first met her at exercise class but didn’t realize she was your Mom for quite a while. She was so welcoming and always has a great smile for everyone. Love to your family.

    She was my “Cumadre” and loved her very much. We spent many times together going on vacations and movies etc. She was a friend of confidence and trustworthy. Will miss her. May you rest in peace, my friend. Celeste and Servulo Vasconcelos.
