Memories Timeline


  1. My Aunt was such a Lady. I lived with the family for about a year while she honored me by having me there for my first year of college. Never once saw a bad side of her. A strong woman no doubt, and God help the one who would threaten harm on her family. Yes, if you wanted to find her, look in the kitchen. I know the Lord has her busy and in charge. I have nothing but fond memories and am so glad I have them. Peace of the Lord and God bless Tia. Love always, Jim

  2. Mrs. Irma Nieves was a lovely sweet lady. She always had strong family ties and took care of many with love, grace and kindness. She will be greatly missed by many. My condolences go out to all her loved ones.
