To all the Gallegos' Family! Mama Emma welcomed me into her (you alls') family as if I was her own. I enjoyed the parties, the dances, and the visits. I only wished she would have met my uncle ;) I thank her for giving birth to one of my good friends (aka Monica). She was a fun-spirited, happy lady full of joy and will be dearly missed. May you all have peace knowing she is in God's hands and reuniting with the loved ones that have left before her once again. My deepest, deepest sympathy to you all and my heart aches that I won't get to see her again on Earth. There is nothing like the loss of a mom, she is the glue and I know that her glue is permanent and you will all keep her close in your hearts. Prayers for peace. Love you all!

Monica & Family: May God continue to give you all strength doing this time. Mother's are the golden piece to the family, so always keep her near and close to your heart. I pray you find comfort in knowing she in a resting place with God.
