I am so sorry to hear of Sr. Sarah's passing. I met this beautiful lady while I used to live in Tallahassee working at a bank. She had such a beautiful smile and such a sincere heart that you couldn't help but to fall in love with her. We became friends after that. <3 She was there at my college graduation to help me celebrate. One time when I was going to be traveling out of town, she called me because she had made me a plate of food to go so she wanted me to stop by to get it. It was delicious! When my grandma came all the way from Peru to visit, we got together so they could meet and I loved that. I loved all the stories she would share with me when I'd visit with her. Once she shared a book that she had that was dear to her. The cover was wearing thin so I offered to put a clear cover on it to help protect it. When I did, I took my time and was so careful with it. She was so happy when I was done and I was happy that she was happy. She would speak so fondly of her late husband <3. She loved her family dearly...she'd always point out the pictures she had of them on her wall and on the little table she displayed them on. A few yrs ago, I got a chance to visit her on a short trip I made back up there. It was so good to see her smile again. I will forever cherish the beautiful memories she has left in my heart. My sincerest condolences to her family from all of my heart and my family's as well. Besitos Sr. Sarah <3

Abuela was beautiful inside and out! Her eyes always warm to greet you, and her arms quick to embrace you with a hug. She always wanted you to have something to eat:) No one makes cafe con leche like she did! I would always love it when she would say ay dios mio! She loved her family dearly and gave in every capacity she could. She was gracious, classy, warm and beautiful. Heaven gained another angel. She will be missed but carried forever in our hearts!
