We will never forget Maria Elena and Fred. I am Jessie Palacios Sister in law and Christina's Sister Norma Drollinger. When they would come to Washington State to visit and stay with Jessie and Christina they would have a big barbecue in their honor. We loved seeing them and looked forward to their visits. We had such good memories of them both.
She was a beautiful woman inside and out. We will miss her tremendously . Our prayers go out to Fred and the families. May God give you peace and comfort
God bless you all
Mike and Norma Drollinger
