as a peer from a long time ago, I am saddened to hear of her passing. i remember when she and her brothers first arrived at Alvarado and the good fun we all had as elementary school kids roaming the streets of Richmond (it wasn't that bad!). although i have not seen her in 30 years since ECHS, I will always remember her sweet smile and love for life.

Thanks for your condolences and prayers. This still doesn't make sense, how someone so good who always remained a positive light for all could be taken so unexpectedly and suddenly from her family who needs her. We met while we attended Portola Jr. High and have been a couple since 1981! Attended El Cerrito High School and graduated as proud Gauchos... Married in 1989, we began to build our ohana, and against all odds, our love story was a successful one centered around our Forever Love for each other. My darling Z.. Hun, you are so missed and it hurts so much to not see your smile. To not be able to hold you in my arms and run my fingers through your long beautiful hair. My heart will forever ache until we meet again. Your loving husband and soulmate, Robert

A loss so big that cannot be expressed in words. Your wife and mom's passing has left a deep void in your lives, and I share your pain for her loss. She will never be forgotten, and she will never be replaced. May the Lord comfort and heal all the pain you and your children are feeling. Love you all! Stephanie Andrade
