Aurora truly appreciated her family. Her family was always first before her personal needs.

Our best memories of our momma was her comidas, carne con chile & her flour tortillas which were home made & were cooked twice a day! Her bunuelos during Christmas time & Capirotada.

She loved ranchera music & was always the first one on the dance floor. Her peace sign in pictures was her way of telling us “hey I’m still here” her grandkids called her grandma fresh. Because she was the coolest grandma! 

Aurora was a women of few words but when she spoke she would tell it like it is “unfiltered” 

Our mom will be missed, she will always be loved & remembered, & can never be imitated we will follow her steps & one day just like her we will stand in the presence of the all mighty God.
