Aunt Ruth, or Cuca was the inspiration to me being a nurse. I don't know or remember what exactly she did but all I knew that I wanted to be like her. She also pierced my ears and my sisters Patsy and Gloria when we were small because we wanted pierced ears. This was at a time that stores did not do this publicly. Now they are done everywhere there is a Mall. I also remember that my mom told her not to pierce my ear (the left one) on a mole that is on my ear. My mom said she didn't want me to have cancer there.
Another memory was when again I was small. We did not have a doorbell on our door but she did. I loved to play with it because of this fact, and Cuca kept telling me not to play with it. I continued to do so, and as a result she gave me a light spanking. I deserved it, but she never spanked me again. I made sure of it. A more pleasant memory is when at Christmas my Grandmother would make the best Tamales and she and Richard would come and help us spreading the masa on the corn husks. Then we would all go to Midnight mass. I will miss her for the rest of my life.
