Family grieves on first Mother’s Day since mom shot on Tremont.

Four boys stood in front of a memorial inside their Bronx apartment to wish their mom a Happy Mother’s Day — even as they waited for closure in her killing.“I haven’t heard from the detectives since January,” their father, Angel Rosario, 52, told the Daily News on Sunday. “My sons deserve closure.”Cindy Diaz, 48, was just two blocks from home when she was fatally shot in the chest by a bullet that cops say was intended for someone else. Diaz was carrying food for her children from McDonald’s when she was gunned down on E. Tremont Ave. near Boston Road about 5:40 p.m. on Jan. 6.Rosario was dreading Sunday, the first Mother’s Day since Diaz’s death. He wasn’t sure how to approach his sons.

“I had to bring it up,” he told The News through tears. “There’s no getting around it. I can’t hide it. I asked them if they wished their mother a Happy Mother’s Day.”The sons — Liam, 15; Takis, 14; Reino, 13, and Giovanno, 12 — each said yes.The family held a small vigil with flowers and candles in their living room for their mom, who was cremated. Each child placed a pink rose in a vase during the emotional ceremony.
