In loving memory of our Mother, Sylvia Grado Cruz

August 24, 1960 - October 31, 2023

 

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, whose laughter could light up a room! She was known by many for her love of cooking. In the kitchen, in the echoes of her laughter, and in the joyful gatherings she enlivened, Mom will always be with us. Her love, laughter and culinary creations will remain a cherished part of our lives. While we mourn her passing, we also celebrate the wonderful life she lived.
