Goncalves, Clelia B.

January 22, 1925 - November 29, 2013



Somewhere in my heart beneath all my grief and pain, is a smile I still wear at the sound of my dearest Mother voice.

The precious word is ‘MOTHER’, she was mine and my brother Paul world you see, but now our heart is breaking cause she’s no longer here with us:(

God chose her for His angel to watch all of us from above, to guide and advise the both of us always and know that we still be loved.

The day she had to leave us when her life on earth was through, God had better plans for her, for this, we surely knew.

When we think of her kind heart and all those loving years, our memories surround me and I can’t hold back the tears.

She truly was mine and my brother Paul best friend, someone we could confide in…!

…She always had a tender touch and a warm and gentle grin:)

I want to thank you Mother for teaching me so well, and though the time has come that I must bid you this farewell.

I’ll remember all you’ve taught me and make you proud you’ll see. I am so sorry for all the disappointments I might of caused you involuntary.

Thank you so much my Dear Mother for all the love you showed me…!

Although you’ve left this earth and now you’ve taken flight, we know that you are here with us each morning, noon and night, Forever & Ever in our Hearts & Always present in our Life’s.

Good Bye and Farewell my Dear Mother…!

May God Bless you & may your Soul be Safe and Rest in Peace, Mom:) We Love you Eternally with all our Hearts. Thanks Mom for Everything:)

With much Love for you My Dearest Mother, from both of us your sons that deeply Love you & all our families;

John and Paul Terenas

John and Paul, I am truly sorry for your loss. John, I had the pleasure to work with you for a little while, and I will always remember the joy you had in your eyes whenever you would talk about your mother. Mother’s are certainly one of a kind, and placed here to nurture each of us. Please know that I know your pain personally, and taking it day by day has been my saving grace. Remember the great moments, she will always be with you! Someday you shall reunite and there will be more tears of joy! Praying for each of you and your families. God Loves You!!

I met Mae at her son’s birthday party several years ago. Even though it was Paul’s birthday she was the life of the party because not only can her son have his mom with him on his birthday but have one that was a so unforgettable. She would come and visit and I enjoyed each visit. She had a life and a smile every time I saw her. She lit me up. she enjoyed life with us at Hunters Glenn because she was not only Paul’s mom she was our Mae. Your laugh, your smile and you love will be dearly missed. I ADORE YOU

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
