I had the pleasure to experience Hita love just like everyone else, we can all agree that she was an extraordinary woman. If you needed a place to stay Hita would make space for you, that's who she was. She taught us to be the same we will carry on her legacy, Hita lives in every one of us.

Hita, Even though I did not get to see you as much as I wanted to, you were close to my heart as well as the others you made an impact on your family. You were the spirit of this family, everyone gathered in your presence and it was always a memorable time. I'll never forget the stories Tata (Grandma) told me of you, becoming annoyed of other patients at the nursing home claiming your space by the window where you watched everyone come and go. You were feisty and loving, and I'll always miss you dearly. I love you so much.

Geno is her cute nick name, News and cooking are her favorite TV shows. Very photogenic and filled with life. When times are tough she never despaired, always gave so much love to everyone. Her favorite trip Costa Rico with her friends from the Kingdom Hall. She was the best ever extended kindness to strangers and who ever needed to be comforted. We all knew that one day you will have to go away, may you rest in peace you always. We will remember you.
