Family reunion in Uvalde, Texas June 2013
Cyndi Murillo CampbellPlano, TX
My Grandmother Mama Rosa was the very symbol of unconditional love, support, mentor, advisor, cheerleader, advocate, and always without judgement to me and to so many others in all our good times and challenging moments. She loved everyone, and everyone loved her. The ranch was our 2nd home and provided a place for all of us to grow up together, come together, and build memories for generations.
She left behind a legacy of precious family and friends.
I will miss my weekly talks with Mama Rosa but hope to continue to have conversations with all my family. Do send me an email with your contact information so that we can keep the communication and memories going. My brother Mandean and I would like to plan a family reunion in the summer of 2013 in Uvalde.
Blessings and love to all,
Cyndi Murillo Campbell
