Xan's grandmother, Carmen Delores Rodriguez " Lolo" passed away at the age of 86 today.
Xan is really torn up about this so until January 29th the podcast will be going on Hiatus.
Send your condolences to firstname.lastname@example.org
Born July 16th 1931 in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, Carmen "Lolo" Rodriquez was the fourth child of six brothers and sisters. She was a retired nurse assistant, loving mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother and friend.
Anyone who knew Carmen knew that she was an independent and active woman. She loved eating out, going shopping and traveling. She was stubborn, spunky, but well-liked by all. She would go out of her way to help others, but betray her and she would hold a grudge. Her family came first and she loved her grandchildren.
Her Motto was "Until we meet again"
She passed away on January 18, 2018.
She is survived by her daughter, Yvonne (Bonnie) Villanueva, son in law Paul Villanueva, her grandchildren, Isabel (Chavy) Vasquez, Christopher Villanueva, Alexander Villanueva, her great grandchildren, Laura Vasquez and Nicholas Villanueva, her brother Radames Moll, her nieces and nephews, Billy, Mabel, David, Tito, Barbera, Alex and Tara
She was predeceased by her Husband, Raymond Rodriquez, her son Alex Rodriquez, her daughter Miriam Rodriquez, her sister Glady's Gardner, and her brothers Damion Moll, Raymond Mochin Lopez and Chito Lopez.
