    Please know we are with you in spirit and prayer. Our sincere condolences to all your family. I had just asked your uncle
    Tino Cortez about you and your family at church a few weeks ago. May you find consolation in knowing she lived a very fruitful and good life. May she Rest In Peace and let perpetual light shine upon her.

    Mrs. Ruiz was one of my favorite patients . She always had a beautiful smile when she came to the clinic.
    I worked in the office of her primary care doctor for many years . I could tell she was a wonderful mother
    because her daughters were kind and caring to their mother .
    May each of her family feel God’s arms around you ! I will see you again one day Margarita .

  4. Dear Ruiz family,
    This is such a sorrowful time for all of us! Please know that we are here for you anytime you need anything! We carry with ourselves the legacy of a very beautiful mother, & aunt that’ll definitely never be forgotten! She’s now in paradise praying for all of us left behind! One day we’ll meet with her once again! Love you all!

    Ruiz Family,
    My condolences to all the family, my heart hurts along with yours. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around you to give you strength and consolation.
    Ours families have been friends for many years, and I love each and everyone of you. I remember Mrs. Ruiz as a loving, kind and Christian lady. Having a conversation with her was so joyful, she would laugh and had a beautiful smile.
