“Her wings were never hidden they simply wrapped around our hearts. A grandmother’s love is where every family starts. Her wings were spread throughout the years mending our hearts and wiping away our tears, comforting us anytime life presented us with any fears. She didn’t unwrap her wings she simply seen that we were where we needed to be. She fulfilled her legacy. Spreading her wings, she’s now a guardian angel for you and me”.
She spread her wings as a beloved mother of 5, grandmother of 19, great-grandmother of 33 and great-great-grandmother of 3. Concepcion’s love for the yellow rose was well known to all her family. The yellow rose has long been associated with the sun and its life-giving warmth; this was also true for Concepcion. She spread love, peace and happiness to all her family and friends. There was never a soul that walked into her home, that was not greeted with a genuine smile. She comforted All her family with love, warmth and happiness. She devoted her life to God. In her heart she pushed for all her family to live life as God would have intended. These words were rarely pushed; though she prayed that God would bless her and her family with eternal peace and happiness.
