I first would like to share my sincere condolences with the family. The memories of aunt Mini will never be forgotten. Whether it be the old backyard barbeques or dancing around the living room to some crazy music she was always a hoot. Most of all I loved that she was a good friend and sister in law to my mother, and now they can share more laughs and dancing together in heaven! Prayers and sympathy, Tita
