|Grandma, I dont even know where to begin. Not a day goes by where Im not think about you, your always in my thoughts and prayers. It was the hardest thing thats ever happened to me to have to lose you. You were always there for me and erica. You were there for everyone. Anyone could tell you anything and you wouldnt care. You were always loving and caring of everyone in our family. Even today, its been almost 4 months and it feels like it was just yesterday that you passed. I wish you wouldnt have had to go so soon but Im happy that you dont have to feel pain anymore. I remember seeing you when i went to Lamar and you smiled at me. I'll never ever forget that. I love you and Miss you so much. I cant wait to see you again. I know we'll all be together again one day, until then i know your watching down on us. I love you and Grandpa more than anyone in the world. Rest In Peace :) |

|Hi Grandma, it's Deanna. I'm just sitting here with the girls looking at your beautiful picture. I don't know where to start, it feels like your not gone, i just keep thinking that your at home watching your stories, reading your books or even making tortillas and now when we go down there it won't be the same cause you were always there. I know god had to take you cause it was your time and he needed you with him, and so you can be an angel for the family. I know you will watch grandpa and the whole family and i will see you again someday up there. I miss you so much grandma and I love you. Deanna and girls |

You were the backbone of our family and now your gone.Grams I miss you so much.Even though I didn't visit you as much as I wished I should've I thought and prayed about you and gramps everyday and wished how much I could've been there with you.I wished I could of spent the last few moments with you and told you how much I love you and how we're gonna miss you. Grammy someday I will see you again and when that day comes I'm gonna squeeze you so tight that I'm not gonna feel like I'm gonna break you, because we will both be angels together.I love you! always and forever Your loving granddaughter Amy Robles |

Dear Chavira Family, On behalf of Lamar Area Hospice Board of Directors and Staff, I would like to extend our most sincere condolences. You were all such wonderful examples of "family" and it was obvious by the time spent and sacrifices made that you loved Mary very much. You took very good care of her. Thank you for allowing us to help. It was a privilege to be of service. Sincerely, Deb Pelley
