    I'm so sorry for your loss
    I can't remember anyone more joyous, anyone healthier in body and mind, always telling us how we had to use our heads because we would work hard in life She would tell Betty and me No one gave us anything and no one will give u anything We would laugh thinking oh sure Wow how fast those years went by remembering her is easy, She always set a place for u at her dinner table even though there were at least 10 others to feed
    I know there’s an ache within ur heart
    that will never go away but I pray that as a family your Faith will stay strong Coming from such great Parents as Henry and Helen Gallegos , you have no choice but to be the best cause they were awesome. May I share in your pain today May I help in anything May God Bless all of you Those Family members that will be traveling to show honor and respect for Helen (Mom,Grandma,Great Grandma, Auntie, Comadre ,Sister or even someone's neighbor ) Godspeed !!!!!!LovezU Cathy Baca

    I'm so fortunate and grateful that I had the opportunity to grow up and spend countless hours and days in grampo and grandma's house. Vivid memories of running around with my cousins and hearing the laughter of everyone. I will cherish those memories forever.
