VIGIL -- Gertrude Vigil December 4, 1908 - March 24, 1992 Abuelita Querida, Felz Cumpleaos! Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I remember your mischievous sense of humor.

You made the best homemade bread, tortillas and your famous "Trudy Burgers"! So much has happened that I wish I could share with you. I know you're watching over us from Heaven. I just hope no one's messing up your hair up there! I love you and miss you with all my heart. I dedicate "Hermoso Cario" to you, Grandma. Your loving granddaughter, Monica
