    Andrea Rivera Picart (May 12, 1911 - August 31, 2002)

    Words of Remembrance for our grandmother, Andrea

    One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: That word is love.

    The memory of Mama Andrea will always be with me. Some of my earliest recollections extend to a time when I stayed in Ponce with Mama Andrea at a young age. I remember her kind demeanor, her sense of humor and her fondness for watching "lucha libre" on television. Her sonorous chuckle, open smile and mischievous eyes echo in my mind and heart where they will always remain. As she became ill in her later years, I witnessed many of these attributes erode with heartbreak. However, despite her condition, I could always see the old Mama Andrea beneath the surface. She is now in a better place where she is free from the burdens of this world. We are saddened at her passing but her essense lives in all of us where it will remain. We are thankful for having such a good grandmother as she now leaves us not with sorrow but with love.

    -Edward Colón

      My condolences, Edward

      I understand the love of a grandmother. I was blessed with two wonderful, loving grandmothers. Both have passed and yet their love is still with me.

      And now, I too am a grandmother, and I can tell you that your grandmother loved you as much as she loved her very own children.

      God bless you and comfort you in this time of grief and loss.

        You are indeed lucky to have such a loving grandmother. She looks like a typical loving boricua abuelita to me. She must have been very proud of her children and of her intelligent, handsome and sweet She was blessed. May she rest in the divine garden forever. Love.

        And Peace be with your entire family.

          Siento mucho la pérdida de tu abuelita. Yo perdí mi abuelita Juanita en Caguas hace dos meses y comparto tus sentimientos.
