Condolences for Martha Arteaga
My beloved grandmother lived with my family and I for many years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I remember multiple times after school (both in high school and college) and where I would come home and sit in her bed and she would ask me about my day and then I’d get to hear stories from her childhood. I am so thankful for those years of closeness with her. Every night before bed she would always tell me “Te amo, te quiero, te adoro.” I cherish those words with me now
You were a wonderful mother to Dahlia. She lives the kindness, warmness, and generosity you imparted to her.
My mom gave good advice and she even used props. I was eight and hanging “with a bad influence” she brought out a bowl of fruit and asked if I leave this bad apple with all the other good apples what will happen. She always wanted to know who I was hanging out with and let it be known when she didn’t trust my friends or boyfriends and darn it she was always right. Cheers to my ama who gave good advice if you ever sat with her and just talked and listened.
