Como olvidar a esta gran hermana . Recuerdo siempre nos recibía con un abrazo y 💋 nunca solamente de mano. Sus pláticas animadoras, en lugar de ser uno el que iba a dar estímulo ella no lo daba a nosotros. Su fortaleza y fe que tenia es algo en que seguir. Va ser extrañada por muchas personas. Ahora nos queda a nosotros estar allí para recibirla. Bendiciones Goyito y Elia que Jehová los cuide. Los queremos mucho !
