Mama, It's been over 2 mos since I have last written to you. So many occasions you have missed and we missing you. I know we're on this earth for a short-time but I'm greedy and miss you so much. I went to church on Sunday and asked God for strength and endurance. At times I feel I am going to explode. I know you are in a beautiful, peaceful and loving place with all our loved ones. It will be a year soon and everyone misses you so much. It's difficult as I feel I haven't grown up as yet. I feel sad, angry and depressed. I continue with my part-time job, Michael is visiting his father in Redding will be back tonight. Sonia is in Hawaii having so much fun with her family. Norm returned from Disneyland, Universal Studios and Sea World last Friday. I returned from Vegas with my Sha-Sha, I felt so relaxed. Of course, Papa and his "incredible" trip to Houston. We both knew it mama, he came home earlier, he is so stubborn but how well you know that. Papa is actually going to see a Dr. since his b/p has been of concern. Mama, I really don't know how you stayed with him all these long years, that other life he led would have destroyed me in 5 years time but you stood by with much sorrow in your heart. I plan to sleep over this coming Saturday and return on Monday by noon. I miss seeing Norm's kids, hoping we are all healthy and Sonia makes it to Bravo's for dinner on Sunday. Tio Carlos y Tia Merceditas aye van. Tia Evita y Tio Angel miss you terribly and they continue to see father once a week. Mama, it's time for me to go, please pass on to God to give me strength. Now that Sonia's girls will be in college I hope to escape with her and enjoy life! Love you always, I see your picture every day and wear your crosses, always in my heart...bye for now mama, we'll talk later...tu hija

Hi Mama, going to try again, for some reason my previous message to you went away. There is still no relationship with the LeBlancs and no apologies, they have hurt our family so much. Papa continues to do well, we're very happy. Father is spending Fri thru Mother's Day at Rick's, I'm pleased, didn't want him being alone. Incredible mama, Monday, May 3rd would have been your 52nd wedding anniversary, who would have told us two years ago at the Carnelian Room you no longer would be with us, I miss you so much. Sonia is going up to Sonoma for Mother's Day, I'm going to Red Bluff for the first time in 11 months. Poor Bill broke his hip last Friday and in a rehabilitation hospital, we'll see him Saturday. There is so much you have missed. Anastasia's prom, then her graduation June 12th, but, you'll be with her in spirit. Mama, you should be very proud of her, she's been accepted to all the schools she's applied to, due to the high cost of private universities she's going to East Bay U, at least she'll be close to Rick. I feel happy Sonia and Felipe continue to assist their daughters, really hoping they will put their education to good use and form their lives. Anastasia will get your wedding ring, you'll be with her in spirit and always in her heart. Mercedes Salguerro had a pacemaker placed last week and is doing well. Tio Carlos is a little boxer, he continues to fight. Tia Evita misses you a lot and keeps moving around even with her leg pain. I'm doing ok, siempre con la gordura, what can I say. Cathy and I talk at least 2-3 times a week, which is good, la pobre esta cansada. Norman y su familia estan muy bien, Nina ya va cumplir 6 anos. Michael sigue bien, se queda sin su trabajo pero va entrar buen dinero. Mama, I am financially fortunate, wish I could help all my brothers and sister, I do what I can. Michael is in Scotland returning on Friday, please pray for his safe return. It's a little after 8:00p and the sky looks lavender with brushstrokes of white clouds..How beautiful it must be in heaven...Love you always, think of you always and always in my heart...everyone misses you so much, they can't believe you're gone but I tell them, you're at peace and with your mama and papa and we'll see each other once again....con mucho amor, maritza

Hi Mama,
It's been a beautiful spring weekend, it's also been awhile since I last wrote. My first birthday without you, it really did hurt but I know you are in a much happier place with no pain. I had a wonderful birthday week. I spent 2 nights with papa, took the family to Basque Cultural Center for a nice Saturday meal and back to your house for Cake. Devinah came down from school for the dinner, Norm's kids are so cute. Things are a little calmer w/papa, Norman had a talk w/him and you know papa, lo que el dice however, he doesn't mention them to me. We took a nice walk at Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach on Sunday the 14th. Michael took me to the big 4 for dinner and Sonia took the Friday off. We went with papa to AAA to put Sonia's name on his car, then to Target and cemetery. Afterwards we went to el Zocalo for lunch. Dropped Papa off and Sonia and I had dinner and a movie, it was a great day. Papa is with Rick attending a surprise b/d for Lupita's 60th b/d. Oh mama, your orginal wedding ring set looks so pretty, it will grace Anastasia's hand on her high school graudation, this will be very touching, I know you and she had such a special bond. Sonia and I went up to Sonoma yesterday to drop Anastasia off to spend with Devinah. I am so proud of Anastasia, her grades are great, wish we had the money to send her to Dominican in Marin county. There's been a cut in the relationship with Rachel and the girls and I'm afraid it will put a strain on all of us, hope next time I write I'll have better news. There will be graduation parties in the next two months, Veronica, Anastasia and let's see about Rachel's. Michael is hanging in there, he's still with the company but maybe for another 2-4 weeks. Once he gets his severance la torre will be paid off. Mama, I really want another house in SF, I don't like living here anymore. Papa is doing great and looks good. Cathy and I are talking more these days at least 2-3 times a week, we are being invited by Tio Carlos to lunch and I suggested April 6th, El Zocalo, I haven't seen Cathy since October. Well mama dearest, I miss you very much but you keep me strong in my heart and again I had you with me for 50 years, very blessed. Please continue to watch over us and I know you're at peace and feeling light as a feather with no worries...Love always, tu hija

Hi Mama, you must be so happy and tranquila in heaven! I went to church again, love it when I'm the only one there, it's so quiet. I look at la Virgin De Concepcion at Old St. Mary and think, incredible my mother is not on this earth anymore...I've been very disappointed in Papa, I applaud you mama, how you dealt with him and his secret life for 51 years...his claws have come out, he plans on visiting Wilfredo soon, he told Tio Carlos. I haven't taken my blood pressure this week becuase I've been upset. As usual Norman and I have had words, como siempre. I was so happy and looking forward to this weekend. I'm taking all of next week off, taking Sonia w/her group/Norm and his group and Papa to dinner to celebrate my 51 years at the Basque Cultural Center. I was planning on sleeping over til Monday however, with everything has surfaced I plan to come home on Monday. Mama, I feel different, don't worry I won't abandon father but I feel very hurt by his actions. You know he's leaving those two 5k each after his death.I can't accept his former life and how he never let it go even after marrying you. I told Sonia, I'm happy for mama, no more heart ache, esta tranquila after all the years of those other two. In a weird way, I have a sense of peace, father is doing great, he's doing what he wants w/o considering anyone elses feeling, so be it. Pray that Michael gets a great job, we pay off la tore and we go on vacation..estoy cansada. I think I am going to seriously consider a full time job. Sonia, Rick and Norman will have to step up to the plate when I start working full time. I need to start being more selfish, I can see why your heart just couldn't take anymore. Mama, that's it for now...you are always on my mind and grateful I had the years I had with you....Love always, tu hija.

Hi Mama, it's been awhile since I've written to you. You've been aware papa was having issues with his blood pressure, it's finally under control. We've had hard issues with Blue Shield in prescribing one medicine in particular. Papa received a letter yesterday which indicated his case does not call for that particular medication. Well, fortunately his b/p has been great. Mine on the other hand has sky rockted to the point of scaring me. I'm not having any wine or heavy foods for at least 2 weeks hoping b/p goes down. I haven't seen a doctor in a long time, a bit nervous. I will make an appointment before end of March. Mama, I miss you a lot, incredible you're no longer with us. I know we are not meant to be on this earth that long but I thought you could have remained with us a little longer. I'll be 51 years of age soon, I am grateful I had you this long when I think you were in your thirties when you lost your mother. You know how I hate to work full-time pero me toca otra vez! Michael still hasn't been given his notice so that has me in knots but I need to relax, he always comes through. I also have to realize I may be living en esta tore for a while. Con el dinero que le van a dar, se paga el mortgage. Papa took care of his trust, I know you didn't want any dinero for los otros pero que se va hacer, va ser poquito. Papa has a renal sonogram on the 23rd, Enrique Jose is taking him. Tio Carlo sigue con su vida, dice papa que se ve un poquito palido pero ayi va. Tia Merceditas como siempre, ayi va ella tambien. Cati me llamo, realmente no tengos muchos deseos de hablar. Papa vio a Mercedes numero 4, dice es bonita, morenita con pellito parado. Tia Evita y Tio Angel siguen con sus planes con la iglesia y bailes. Sonia ocupada con sus hijas que van muy bien. Norman, bueno, ya sabellos. Enrique Jose llega a ver a padre durante almuerzo, tengo dias que no lo veo. Por favor mama rese por todos...siempre con amor, tu hija maritza
