In a message cross-posted to Instagram and Facebook, Nany González wrote on Oct. 29, 2021, "Heaven received an angel yesterday. May you rest in peace, Mom. I will continue to make you proud, and not a day will go by where I don’t think of you and thank you for the life you gave me. To everyone who has reached out and sent their love to my family and I, thank you. She was loved by so many, and I pray to be half the woman she was. The strongest woman I know, my mother, Carmen Guerra-Ferry."
