She later worked for North Coast Energy services, Inc, a non-profit agency, and here she worked for thirteen years.

Querida prima, I miss you so much. You were such a good person. Always giving and never expecting anything in return. We sure had some fun times growing up. I will always treasure those memories. Thank you for all the support and encouragement you gave me. I will try to live by your words of advice..."Remember, we need to live one day at a time, nothing can be done about the past, no one can guarantee us tomorrow, today is the present and is all we have." I love you Anita.
