"My deepest condolences to the Ortiz Family, God gave me the opportunity to know Maria or grandma grandma as my grandchildren knew her. I know you will all miss her, but know that she is now resting peacefully in Gods loving embrace. May your memories of your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother always be alive in your hearts... Love you all, Frances "
