Zia Luisa was one of the most kindest and loving people that I have ever known. Always a huge smile and open arms to greet you when people came to visit her. Words alone cannot express the role model that our Zia was to all her family. Even at the age of 98, her memory remained sharp and she enjoyed telling many stories. God Bless Zia Luisa.
