My deepest condolences to the Sixtos family from your cuz 'Nena'.

My Tia, she was a beautiful person. She loved all her family very dearly and would say she did not want to leave them. She was very appreciative how they took care of her, stood by her and never left her, as she said 'thrown out somewhere'. She was very proud of her girls how they stuck together to see about her needs. Again, My Tia was so loving, always asked about all of us, her nieces, nephews and our families. After visiting with her, I loved how she would hold on to me and would shower me with her blessings (crying). I am glad I saw her just two weeks before she passed. I will carry that last blessing with me till I meet up with her. Rest in peace Mi Tia!
