    We had the pleasure and honor of knowing and sharing times, however limited with Queta, always enjoyed her views and cleverness on Mexican politics and things in general.

    A great loss for our friends Gloria and Joe, our prayers are with you.

      Dear Marianne and Raul,

      Thank you very much for your nice thoughts about my mother and condolences.

    Muy hermoso y certero.
    Para nosotros 3 fue un ser muy especial. Para mí, fue como mi mamá en la tierra y curiosamente la tuvimos más tiempo que a mi mamá.
    Y gracias a ella mis hijas sintieron el amor de una Abuelita que han y seguirán valorando, ya que ella misma lo sembró.
    Seguiremos unidos con ella y con todos ustedes, especialmente ese día.
    Con mucho.

    Rest in peace the aunt who helped to form a great family, who set an example of love, dedication, respect and love of life. I will remember you, aunt, as part of my life and just like my dad, Alfonso, I love and respect you.

    Nuestras condolencias más profundas a toda la familia por la desaparición física de Doña Maria Enriqueta Ramirez, con la que tuvimos inmenso placer de conocer y tratar durante nuestro periódo de vivencia en Kansas. Una dama respetable y de admirables cualidades espirituales. Generosa y amable. Descanse en la paz del Señor en la tierra que la vió nacer. Amen.
