You will always be in my heart, my madrina. Because of you and your love and patience, I have grown to love our Blessed Mother Mary, and trust in the prayers of the Saints. You were a wonderful teacher, and helped me grow in my faith. I will always remember what you taught me, I will always love as you loved, and I will cherish the little moments we shared. It is not goodbye, but until we see each other again in the Kingdom of our Lord. I love you, Madrina.
