Tia, I remember as growing up, you would come over to our grandmother's house. I remember you taught me and my sister, Lily, our first words in English when we were small. I remember how caring you were and how at times grand mother "Chica" Francisca would say that You spoiled us a little too much. I am going to miss those moments but I know I will carry them in my heart. Forever! May Our Heavenly Father Yaweh, go e you peace and have you in his glory. I love you and I miss you!
