  5. Mrs. Rivas was a very caring loving soul and we always enjoyed her company. She never came to my house empty handed! Always bought something for the family. Now that is “old school” upbringing, in which we always had a great time talking about and the people we knew and how this is a very small world. She talked very highly about her kids always happy!!!! I know now she is resting with our Lord and I truly believe we will she her again in heaven! Rest In Peace Mrs. Rivas until we meet again! You will always be remembered!
