La última vez que mi Papá Ibo habló con mi Tía Emma le dijo no nos hemos podido ver pero espero reunirnos algún día en la Gloria Eterna con Dios y lloraron.
Murió un 24 de Abril un día antes del cumpleaños de mi Papá.
Dios la tenga en su santa gloria y descanse en paz asi sea amén.
Dios la bendiga y la acoja en el cielo.
Flor Ontiveros.
