Tengo muchos recuerdos de Olivia porque convivimos días de trabajo juntas en KORO por varios años y la conocí porque estaba muy involucrada en el movimiento Pro-Life. Fuimos muy amigas porque teníamos muchas cosas en común. Lamento no haberla visto recientemente. Nuestra devoción a la Virgen de Guadalupe siempre nos unió.
