La Doña Torres es una ángel que he tenido la dicha de conocer. No se requiere ni años ni meses para darse cuenta que es una dama tierna y bendecida. Le doy gracias a Dios que me regaló unos minutos con ella solo unas semanas antes de que la recibió en su gloria. Mi más sentido pésame y pueden contar conmigo para lo que necesiten.-Rae (amiga de Lourdes)
