I will always remember Señora fondly. There were many great memories that I have with her, especially that I loved her hair so much that I decided to get a perm and ended up looking like a poodle, not at all like her hair looked. Another memory is of how she called me out at a concert for not practicing enough beforehand and I have not forgotten because my mom doesn’t forget and reminds me every once in awhile. :) She is also the one who gave me a great appreciation for the Spanish language and culture and was the reason for me majoring in the language during college. We spent our Tuesdays playing the piano, speaking in Spanish, albeit probably poorly on my end. The last time I saw Señora was at my wedding and I was so honored to have her there. As I said, I will never forget her and send my love and prayers to her family. Descanse en paz
