Guadalupe was a natural nurturer who loved life. She prayed and cared for her family every day. She loved to cook, listen to music, dance and go to the casino. When she gave a card to someone for a special occasion she always took the time to personalize each and every one.
Mom, our lives were forever changed by your presence and the love you gave us. Heaven is also forever changed now that you are there. The family would like to thank Heartland Hospice for their love and care of their mother, Lupe. The family would also like to acknowledge, Barbara Nelson, Ernestine Lucero, Emma Johnston, Larry and Nancy Valdez.
