Aunt Becky...I will always remember your beautiful smile and your laugh! Most of all, I know how much you loved us all. Even when I was a traviesa, you would just laugh and shake your head at me. You will be missed but I know that you are in a better place and that you are no longer suffering or in pain. I love you!

On a Sunday afternoon in the summer of 1994, my Aunt Becky drove her brand new car from Flagstaff to Phoenix, AZ along with Betsy and Richard. The car had less than 700 miles on the odometer.
Long story short, I and my friend Richard managed to flip that car over into a ditch just 2 days after she drove it off the showroom floor.
I remember thinking how mad she was going to be. I was expecting to be screamed at, perhaps even more. If you’re an Aguilar child, you know what that ‘more’ was.
But to my surprise, Aunt Becky didn’t say a single word. She only asked “Are you okay?”
Those words and the look of concern not for her car but for me, cut me down harder than any chancla ever could.
Thank you Aunty. I owe you a car 🚙

My Aunt Becky was so loving! Whenever she would see me, she would hug me so tight and kiss me and say “I love you baby!” Her laugh was contagious. I loved her with all my heart and I knew she loved me just as much. I loved to run my fingers through her thick straight hair and the last time I talked to her was about 2 weeks before she passed and we talked and talked and laughed and laughed. She was so happy to finally be going home from the hospital. I love you and will never forget you Tia.

My aunt fed us like kings and queens....it’s one of the ways Latinos show love. But more than that, she genuinely loved to laugh. I’ll never forget her smile and laughter. Or the Thanksgiving Times in Prescott....many memories..
