Our mother, Margarita, was the matriarch, heart, and soul of this family. She lived her life with a passion for love and acceptance of all people. She loved everyone and only saw the good in others. She lived her life with Christ in her heart and led by example, and she touched everyone she met. She never wavered in her love and devotion to God and her family. She was a beautiful soul, and the most humble and loving person we’ve ever known. She was such an incredible example of kindness, love, honesty, forgiveness, and strength. No one could emulate Jesus Christ more than our mother, and if God had an echo, it would’ve been her. She always gave more than she had, and put others before herself. Her presence and love was felt everywhere, especially as our family grew. We were Blessed to have her as a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She will continue to live in our hearts and memories, she will never be forgotten. She was very loved by all those she met and will be dearly missed.
