  1. Cyndy,
    I will miss my Aunt Lupe so much! I always admired her strong will and matter of fact personality. She told it how it was. I’m sure she has been reunited with my parents, Alfred & Belen Terrones. All my love!

  2. Rest in peace to my wonderful Aunt Lupe!!! I remember visiting you in the nursing home. You and my aunt Bennie were the ones that I would always come see. Say hello to my Grandma Hope & Grandpa Raymond Gonzalez!! Prayers to the Terrones’s!!!
