    My dear, sweet Welita. You were loved and adored by us all; from your children, to your grandchildren, to your great grandchildren and even your great-great grandchildren. Noone will make homemade tortillas, bean tacos, or atole the way you did. I miss you so much and I love you so much. You live on through me and my daughters
