We used to say that Sister Luerra was a walking miracle. Now that she's gone it seems almost natural because she walked with one foot in heaven. One can always tell who the real Christians are, the greatest Christians, the holiest because they're the most loving, the most approachable, the warmest, the most giving. And that was Sister Luerra. The Guerrero girls will never forget you.
