Helodia RicoOctober 1, 1922 ~ November 12, 2017 (age 95)
Helodia Rico was my queen. She is the strongest and bravest woman I’ve ever known. It was because of her, the lone pioneer at 41 years of age, that my extended family got to come to this country. She took the first step. She built a home and helped anyone who came her way. No one would ever go hungry if she was near and there was always a plate at her table. May God keep her at his table now. I am lost with out her.
Padre nuestro que estás en los cielos, santificado sea tu nombre, venga tu reino, hágase tu voluntad, asi en la tierra como en el cielo. Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada dia, y perdona nuestras ofensas, como tambien nosotros perdonamos a los quenos ofenden. No nos dejescaer en tentacion, y libranos del mal,
