    Mrs. Vasquez was unlike any other client I have ever crossed paths with. Each time I went to visit our pan Dulce talks were always so filled with wisdom that I felt like I was hearing from God himself . My prayers and comfort go to the family especially the love of her life Mr. Vasquez . Mrs. Irma was always such a joyous woman who always reminded me of the strength and resilience that women carry . Always so strong for her husband and family. Once again it has been an honor to have been able to serve her for the past 6 years with walk in faith primary home care . She will deeply be missed .
