Esperanza Update-2

Hi All,

I hadn’t heard from Anna for a couple of weeks so emailed her this morning. This afternoon I received the following message.
I have replied accordingly sending everyone’s love to the family.
Hi Polly,

I have been meaning to send you a note for days.

My mama passed away on December 9. I am so sorry to have delayed these news.

I have had much to do and have also just started back to work.

There will be a memorial in her honor on Saturday January 19, 2013.

It will be at 2:30 pm at Forrest Lawn in Glendale, California.

She died at home while on hospice. She had ovarian cancer that was just too advanced by the time they figured out what was going on.

She was in acceptance and at peace.

I will miss her terrible, we were good buddies and companions.

Thank you for all the fun you shared with her.

Anna Gallego
I’m sure if any Redbubble members from that area want to go to the memorial service, you will be more than welcome.

REST IN PEACE ESPERANZA, we will miss you x
