It is with a heavy heart that I share with readers of La Voz Newspaper that my mother, Molly Santos, the founder of La Voz has passed away at the age of 93. She lived a long life and there were many ups and downs. But she persevered and kept going. Many times in her life she was told no, que no puedes, que no puedes porque eras una mujer. But my mother marched like they say, to the beat of a different drummer. Her story can be found on pages 6 thru 13 in this issue of La Voz.
In her final weeks she let it be known that she was ready to go. She was not ill, she was not in any pain. And so she basically stopped eating and stopped talking. She was alter towards the end but did say she was ready. We will be having a memorial mass for her in Uvalde, Texas toward the end of the month. Mama, gracias por todo. We will indeed miss you and we will never forget you.
