Mommy, you are all I have ever known and you always cared for me and worried about me even now that im older. I appreciate every little thing you have done for me and I tried so hard to always help u when I could as well. You are my #1 mom always and forever. I was always your baby and you were always my little mom I could stick in my pocket. Words cant describe how much i miss you and I hope so much that you really are in a better place. Please watch over me and keep me safe because I have never felt more lost and scared in my life.

My family grew up one street over from the Salinas family and it saddens me that you all have lost someone so special. She is now an angel watching over you and may she finally rest in peace.

Martina you were like my other mother you always made me feel welcome in your house. You made the best Puerto Rican rice ever I can eat the whole pot. I even suggested you to start selling it out of your house it was that good you told me i was silly. You may have been small and skinny, but you were big and strong in the inside never back down to anyone or anything. I gonna miss the long conversation we had when we had our coffee in the morning and your big smile. I promise you that your daughters are in good hands your son in laws are taking good care of them including myself. I love you and gonna to miss you until we meet again this is not a goodbye its see ya later.

Me puedo desculpar mil veces pero eso ya no te va regresar. Pero si te quiero pedir desculpa por no entender las cosas mas pronto y en su forma de ser. Ahora si entiendo que fuiste un gran mujer; madre, abuela, hija, hermana, y amiga fueron tus especialidades. Te quiero mucho y me arripento de muchas cosas quizas atrazar el tiempo pero tu y yo bien que entendemos que lo hecho ya esta hecho y tu y yo aunque todo estaba hecho nos queremos. Y nadien lo sabe mas bien que tu y yo y mi Grande Diosito que ahora te tiene a su lado en una vida llena de Gloria. Te quiero te extrano y hasta que nos miramos otra vez. Cuida mis bebes por favor.
- Liana Rodriguez (your daughter)
On January 3rd we lost a strong loving mother and grandma you were loved by so many. I'm going to miss you so much but I know one day we will meet again this is only good buy for a little bit. You taught me so much in life and your still teaching even though your gone. I always thought a mother is suppose to take care of her kids but sometimes a mother just needs to get taken care of by her kids and I only wish you were still here so I could take care of you but I know you are no longer suffering and in pain I love you until we meet again
- Lisa Ruiz
She was one tough cookie and she didn't care about anything but the safety of her family and her beloved Snoopy! She raised her daughters well ... strength and determination that everything was always alright. Oh friend you may not know it but you taught me well ... Protect those you love no matter what & never let them see you struggle ... Thank you so much for everything as I am greatful to have had you in my life! Love, peace and joy to you forever and always! I have nothing but great memories with you and I am so proud to call you FRIEND! I still can't get over it but knowing that we cared for each other is enough for me to be at peace with it and you will be missed dearly not only by me but by many! LOVE YOU FRIEND & THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!

- Christine Serrato
Martina you were always smiling and laughing. When we were together nobody knew what was going to be said or done! We knew though that it was going to be nothing but a great time! I ways thought it was funny that Stephanie & Larsene would compare stories to see which one had the crazier mom! I love you my dear friend & you will always be in my heart. I can hear you laughing and hitting my arm now.
