Lupe will be forever missed and always cherished in her family’s hearts. We were blessed by God to have had her as our mother. Until we see you again Ma, we know you’re enjoying a bingo game, keeping score of the White Sox and smiling so beautifully while watching over your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
