Dear Eddie, Christina, Michelle and family,
I am deeply saddened by the passing of "Teta" Ivanka. No longer will I hear her youthful voice and laughter. No longer will I see her eyes happily sparkle and experience her wonderful warm smile. She was the kindest, most loving person that I have ever known. My Teta, like a second mother. She was so very proud of your every accomplishment - Irene, Eddie, Christina and Michelle...you were her happiness. I will treasure all the moments that I shared with her. I believe that there is a heaven and she is surely there. God rest your gentle soul, my sweet Teta Ivanka...
Teta Ivanka was my mother’s best friend. You were a beautiful and selfless person. Thank you for the wonderful memories. I am so grateful to have been blessed with your presence in my life. You brought so much joy and happiness to our family.
Please accept my sympathy in the loss of your mother and grandmother. She was a special person.
You’re mother was one of the loveliest women I’ve ever had the pleasure to have known. I have many many fond memories of her that warm my heart. The loss of your dearest mother is a truly a difficult event and I offer you my deepest heartfelt condolences. You were blessed to be able to call her mom and she was blessed to have you as her loving and dedicated son.
My deepest condolences to Eddy and the family. I always have found memories of Ivanka. She was always caring and loving. Devoted to her family and a great godmother.
I am comforted to know that she had such a long and fruitful life.
