Obituary

Carmen Gladys Velasquez Medero Maisonet was born September 4th, 1947 in the city of Carolina on the Isla del Encanto, Puerto Rico. She was born to her loving Papi Heleno Velasquez  and her mother Ramona Medero, and she  was the prized granddaughter of her beacon of light Demetria Velasquez-Ocasio. She was an eternal student who fervently consumed every morsel of knowledge the world had to muster. She traveled the world, carving a path of her own where upon the ground yet to be trodden, a path never revealed to the meek. Her fierce tenacity allowed her to courageously shatter any obstacles that tried to impede her. She brought 10 daughters to this earth, 30 grandchildren, and 19 great grandchildren. She had a special part in raising two grandchildren as her own. One of the most powerful and intelligent wordsmiths, she cultivated in us a love of literature and nature. With piercingly clear chartreuse orbs, she saw you for who you really were, for better or for worse. Her food was a tangible expression of her love and it warmed your soul. She carried on Papi Heleno’s legacy, and was a master horticulturist. She sang the words of her soul, a sweet yet melancholic melody we will forever hear in the howling of the winds. She breathed life into the world, even to her very last breath.  We lay to rest on July 25, 2020, our Princess of Wisdom.

    Grandma, i know we were apart from each other for a long time, but going with titi ruthy to pick you up from the hospital that day and seeing your face light up made me feel loved from so far away. I love you more than you'll ever know and I know you're looking down on me smiling and protecting. Rest easy grandma, and yes I'm taking great care of the robe you gave me, i wear it every day.

    Mamacita, you gave me wings and you made me fly. I pray the Lord has given you the same in heaven. No words will be sweet enough. No poems will be good enough. No songs will be melodic enough. Nothing can express my love for you. So, I want to say I hope I honored you as the bible says, everyday of my life. In any way, shape, or form, I want you to know you were loved and I always have your back. May the Lord bless you and keep you safe now and forevermore, my beautiful and beloved Mommy. Good night. I love you. God bless you. And bendicion.
    "My love is alive,
    Way down in my heart.
    Although we are miles apart.
    If you ever need a helping hand,
    I'll be there on the double.
    Just as fast as I can.
    Don't you know that there,
    Ain't no mountain high enough,
    Ain't no valley low enough,
    Ain't no river wide enough,
    To keep me from getting to you babe.

    My mom, Thank you for making me who I am today. I feel/felt your presence every day of my life before and after you left us. My prayer is that you are watching and I am making you proud.
    I pray that Heaven is beautiful; that it's everything you ever imagined it would be, no more pain, no more suffering. Please know that I will never stop thinking of you. I love you with my whole heart until it beats no more. I love you mom.

    Mommy,
    You gave me the most important thing I have in life... my faith, love, & belief in my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. I have always known His love and safety because you showed me it first. Our relationship wasn't always rainbows and butterflies, but it was OUR relationship, OUR bond. It was never broken even through arguments, struggles, or distance. Nothing and no one, not even ourselves could ever break it. You showed me unconditional love because you were always there when I actually needed you even if we butt heads along the way. You were there when I met my first true love Christian, an experience I ONLY shared with YOU. The last 3 years I spent far away from you, but you were always so happy I made it out of Florida to live near mountains. On June 5th, 1984, I smelled your scent, laid in bed with you, looked into your wild and beautiful green eyes, and held your hand for the FIRST time. On June 13th, 2020 I smelled your scent, laid in bed with you, looked into your wild and beautiful green eyes, and held your hand for the LAST time. I'll always have you in my heart. You are never gone. I carry you with me daily. It is NEVER goodbye, it's just UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN! I LOVE YOU MOMMY!
