She always made me laugh and feel special. She never forgot a birthday and made it a point to tell you happy birthday. Those who know how big our family is, knows that was a not a small feat to remember. The kids at KHS that knew her, loved her! She adored our foreign exchange student, Dámaso. He also, adored her. He sends his condolences from Spain, as well. I hope you are at peace my dearest aunt, you will be so missed.
