May you rest with our Lord. May your soul reutinte with your loved ones. The only way I can describe her and how I remember her was just bubbly. Always laughing and just roaming the room talking to everyone. She would always call me twin but in Spanish. She will be missed. Prayers for my cousins. Love you all! May God Bless you all.£
