  1. To Pina, and all of the family and extended family,

    My deepest sympathies extended to you all in this time of sorrow. I pray you remember all of the happy, beautiful moments shared with this matriarch of your family and hold them dear. Cherish the memories and go back to them often. Retell the stories, the seemingly small, insignificant anecdotes of your life with her and refresh them for the newer generation.

    I too lost my mom in 2016 and it forever is a milestone of my journey in life.

    Thoughts and prayers, love, Jan Mahlie (I work with Pina at Frontier in the Allen, Tx. office)

  2. I am so sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. I remember her from my childhood as a strong and beautiful woman. I hope that treasured memories comfort you during this difficult time.
