  • Dear Esteban and family. We are totally beyond words at the loss of Herme.
    I am so very sorry and heartbroken to have lost my best friend. We all love and miss her. Miss Hermelinda is up there smiling down at everyone and rejoicing in seeing her lost loved ones once again.
    Save a seat for me Herme. I can’t wait to give you a big kiss and a hug again.
    I have been praying for her and hope she is now happy and at peace and not
    in any pain.
    We Love You Herme.

  • We are going to miss Herme’s infectious smile and laughter and inviting personality so very much. We will cherish the memories and take comfort that she is no longer in pain. All of our love.

  • I remember Herme’s warm and fun-loving personality and her laugh most of all. There is some comfort knowing she is at peace, free from pain, and with her beloved family and Miss Diva now. My condolences to Esteban and the rest of Herme’s family. Rest in peace, Herme.

  • Dear Cueva family,
    HerMelinda, smiled each day at Child Care Unlimited whether she led school age groups or nurtured preschoolers. She modeled a happy attitude and sincerely loved life at work or home.
    We missed her relationship with children, parents, and staff when she left to spend time guiding her own teen boys.
    We are sorry to know of the family loss of HerMelinda. Our heartfelt condolences to all of her loved ones. Charity Monroe

  • Herme was a ray of sunshine working with the children and staff at Child Care Unlimited at SUNBURY United Methodist. She was always smiling and eager to help where ever needed. Her dedication to her family was evident and she was a loving mother to her sons. My deepest sympathy to the family and I know she will be missed by many.

  • Dear family,
    Our love and heartfelt sympathy is there for you all at this time in your lives. We, as extended family, when our Jennifer met and married Manuel, met and enjoyed the company of Herme on her few visits to Texas. She always had her beautiful smile as others has said. We cannot begin to know your loss but do have a deep belief that she is smiling again in Heaven with our Father Jesus and Mary. May the Angels in Heaven welcome her and sing loudly. We will continue to pray for your family and ours as she is a great loss for our family.
    Our love,
    Tony and Debbie White and family🙏🏻♥️

  • I am so very sorry to read of the loss of Herme.  Please accept my deepest condolences.  During sorrowful times like this, we can draw comfort from God’s promise to us found at John 5:28, 29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out . . . .” This can be encouraging for us, because here we see that there will be a resurrection of those who’ve fallen asleep in death—which means we can see them again. We know we can trust this promise because God cannot lie. (Titus 1:2) I sincerely hope these scriptures comfort your family as they have mine, and if you’d like to read the Bible online, or learn more about God’s promises for our loved ones asleep in death, please feel free to visit JW. org. Again, my very deepest condolences to those who love and cherish Herme.👩🏻‍🏫 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♂️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏼‍♂️🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏽‍♂️
