Aunt Petra I so loved you with all my heart. You were the best godmother/ second mother I could have ever wished for. I am so blessed you were here to see me through marriage, divorce and birth of my beautiful daughters Gabrielle & Vivienne. You were always that person I knew when I called or you called my mom you would impart your wisdom onto me "Hold on Sharon and pray things will turn around in a blink of an eye. You are blessed and have done a great job with you children" Those words your voice always provided me comfort and still do. Then when you would come down to Florida to be with mom your best friend and beloved cousin my heart was full to see you two together sisters forever. I thank you for the brother you gave Sandra and me in Terrance . I know you are at peace watching over your son, your daughters, grandchildren, great grandchild, your brother , my mom Terry and all your extend family and friends. We all have been blessed to have had you for 77 years and you brought out the best in all of us. I know you and uncle Renno are having a reunion in heaven with all the family, say hello for us down here and have a Trini wine for us :) I will Love you forever and forever!!!
