My condolences to all the family. May God be with you all and keep you strong. Know that she is now at peace with the Lord and her Loving Husband. I will never forget how she took us in to her home and would feed us before school so we would not be out at 6 in the morning waiting for school to start. She had the biggest heart. I Love you all.
My deepest condolences to the Paez family
