Conchy was more than a sister to me! She would not call Minico, my nickname,, but Mino! She was always the loving, kind, soft spoken, understanding loving person! When we came from Cuba she was the best
Mami a person could have. She took care of Rita & Roberto very lovingly, and of me too. She was the person to be with. She always used to talk about her sweetheart, Danielito, all the time! We were so happy that they were able to reunite and get married! I love you so much Conchy, May you rest in eternal peace in heaven above! I’m gonna miss you so much, and I promise I’ll keep in touch with your dear ones and I know Liza will notify me and vice versa thru Facebook how they all are! Live free with God! Love YOU!

Conchy was one in a million. An amazing Mother who welcomed all the strays her kids brought home with open arms. She loved immensely, adored Dani Sr, the love of her life and was ALWAYS proud of her children, who have grown to be as kind, generous and loving as Conchy was. Thank you Conchy for your love, we will take care of Liza and Danny and we will find ways to keep Dani Sr busy! Until we meet again. Hug my mother for me.
