  3. Tia Elodia was very helpful and showed a lot of love. I cannot describe the magnitude of her love and spirit. When I did not really have enough to eat she would give me bread, baloney, dressing, cookies and pecans. She even threw a sandwich maker for me so I can have a hot sandwich 🥪. She told me if I need anything just come back to the house and she’ll help me. I’m gonna miss her dearly and the love and hospitality she given me. 💕 Thank you tia for everything you have done for me. 🙏 💐

  4. Tia Loy (as our Grandmother called her). would take us on Saturday trips to Our other Tia’s house, Dahlia. Across town but never on the highway. I learned the City riding with Tia Loy to visit relatives. Best part of those Saturday trips on the way home was stopping at Griff”s Burgers. 10 Burgers for a dollar. Oh we were in heaven. We will always Love you, and now we will miss you but we will never forget you. You opened your home to most of the Family at times in our lives and it served as anchor for all of us along with Tia Tila”s house. Lucky to have Family living next door. Great memories like picking Pecans watching the fireworks at Ft. Sam. Watching the Floats leave in procession to Fiesta Parades.We got to see them before the rest of the City did. Swinging on the porch swing with Grandpa Salinas. All from the front Porch of Tia Loys house. You have enriched all of our lives and I Thank You for that. Rest in Peace Tia Loy.

  5. Aunt Loy, you went to heaven to soon leaving behind only tears and pain. May God rest your soul. The Golden Girls have been reunited once again. Miss you…Bonnie
