A picture of you with your cute little companion who kept you busy and always brought a smile to your face.

It was nice I got to see you one more time last year on the 29th of December. You were happy to see us and was trying to tell us something but words were not coming out and you then started to cry.

It was sad to see you like that but now your suffering has ended and you are in a better place with the rest of the family.

Thank you for everything and we will miss you a lot.

May your soul rest in peace!

It was nice I got to spend the last 2 nights alone with you in the nursing home before you passed away the next day.

You opened your eyes a couple of times but I do not know if you knew I was there but I know when I was talking to you and telling you of things you did for me when I was small, I know you knew I was there because your mouth twitched – also when I kissed you before leaving, you opened your eyes.

Thank you Magina for everything you have done for me all my life – brought me to the United States, housed me, helped me look for jobs and took care of me when I was not well – I will never forget that.

It was really sad to see you in that state but now your suffering has ended and you are in a better place with your loved ones.

I will miss you dear sister – may your soul rest in peace.

Your Mom was such a great friend over the years. We worked together at Southwestwrn Bell Telephone and kept in touch on the phone after she left the company. She had such a sweet spirit and was a loving, giving beautiful person. I will miss her.
