In loving memory of Maria Gila who sadly passed away on 19th May 2016

Loved and Loving wife of Antonio.
Beloved mother of Antonio and Carlos, loved by their families.
Now at Peace, Forever in our Hearts.


She is Gone

You can shed tears that she is gone,
Or you can smile because she lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your
back,

Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes,
love and go on.

No matter what I did you were always proud of me
THANK YOU!
I will always and forever love you

Mi querida Mari, que no me has enseñado?
mucho de lo que yo soy hoy es por ti,
Mi perfume mi estilo y mi vocabulario. Ay! Qué pena que no se me ha pegado el arte que tenias el la cocina

Hay personas que con una sola presencia se quedan para siempre y tú eras una de ellas. Gracias por habernos dado a mí y a mi familia uno de los momentos más especiales de nuestra vida. Desde España con todo mi cariño, nunca te olvidare

Para mi fue un placer tener la oportunidad de conocerte mejor.
Uno de mis mejores recuerdos era escuchar tu risa, con lo que cada rato se me ocurría una tontería que contarte para hacerte reír.
Te recordaré siempre
Un besazo
Toya

Hola a todos.

Aunque imaginamos que estos estarán siendo unos días muy difíciles para vosotros y que no hay nada que podamos decir ahora para intentar sacaros una sonrisa, no queremos dejar pasar este momento sin mandaros todo nuestro amor y cariño.

Hemos sentido mucho el fallecimiento de la tía Mary. A pesar de que sólo tuvieron la suerte de volver a verla los que fueron a Australia, ella siempre nos trató con todo el cariño del mundo, tanto cuando fuimos allí como todas las veces que el resto de hermanos hemos podido hablar con ella a través de internet.

La alegría y la ilusión con la que acogió a mamá y a Toya y Menchu, hizo que se sintieran como en casa y es algo que jamás olvidaremos.
La felicidad de ver a nuestra madre y vuestro padre juntos de nuevo y la predisposición de vuestra madre para que se cumpliera ese encuentro es más de lo que nadie hubiera hecho jamás.

Con todos estos bonitos recuerdos y la certeza de que hizo muy feliz al tío Antonio, os mandamos un beso enorme a todos de parte de toda la familia Lillo, vuestra familia. Aunque estemos tan lejos, os sentimos más cerca que nunca.


Hello everyone,

 

Even though we know it is a very hard situation for you, and we can not possibly say anything to even try to get a smile out of you, we do not want to miss this moment to send our love and affection.

 

We have felt so much the passing of aunt Mary. And even though only the few ones who had the chance to travel to Australia had the inmense luck of meeting her again, she would always treat us with all her love and care anytime we visited her or anytime the rest of us could talk to her via internet.

 

The happiness and bliss which she welcomed our mom, Toya and Menchu with, made them feel like home. And that is something we will not ever forget.

The happiness of seeing our mother and your father together again and the role your mother had in making that possible is more than we could ever wish for.

 

With all these beautiful memories and the certainty she made our uncle Antonio so so happy, we send you a big kiss from the Lillo family, your family, to everyone there. Even tought we are so far away, we have never felt you closer.

Durante 10 años había escuchado cosas maravillosas de ella, en octubre del año pasado pude conocer de primera mano todo lo que me decían, pero creo que se quedan cortos. Me alegro de haber podido pasar un mes cerca suya. Siempre en mi recuerdo, un besazo enorme allá donde estés!

As I sit here and try to think of words to write , tears roll down my cheeks, sad tears but also tears for amazing memories that will be with me forever . I'm not your birth granddaughter but the way you loved me id never know different , the love you showed me over the years even when I maybe didn't deserve it :( but you always let me know I was loved and I was special . The love you had for my children and the love they have for you is so special, they will grow up knowing and remembering how important you were to us all , jack cried so much that you can't make him your special pasta for your special boy , but i promised him I'd learn how you made it and make it such a special meal for him . Thank you for just a being you , for loving me unconditionally and always showing that . I love you so much xxx
