  9. Praying for all Aunt Nena’s family. She was a wonderful example of a Godly woman. Glad Jimmy and I got to visit her last June. Love, Jimmy & Suzan Garcia and family

  10. What a blessing it has been For 40 + years to have Anita as part of our family. She became our Momanita and then Grandmanita. She was the English-Spanish interpreter for Veronica and I during our international courting time, the translator during the international phone calls to Veronica’s parents for permission to marry, the wedding cake baker, and family member and support for Veronica at our wedding, the translator after Veronica and I were married, and then the Grandma for our son Alton Manuel when he came along! The most impressive thing for me though is when she gave her blessing on and encouraged my Dad, Perk, to come and visit face-to-face, my mother who was in a nursing home, and make peace and forgive the hurts from their divorce. I had the privilege to witness some of that meeting and it was truly a time of miraculous healing and forgiveness for my parents. Momanita, Gramanita was and is a giant of grace and class. She ran and finished a great race. She is dancing with the Lord and all the angels and loved ones! God’s comfort and peace to her family. David, Veronica, and Alton Manuel Perkins

  11. Sending prayers for all the family. I will miss my beautiful Auntie Nena. I love her so much and I know Heaven has a Beautiful Angel now. I love all my cousins and wish I could have been there. Sending hugs and MAY GOD HEAL YOUR PAIN! ????????
    Love your cousin, Nina
