    De las tantas memorias que tengo, siento que perdi muchas mas. De la sonrisa contajiosa, y el sentido del humor que nos envolvia en risa y alegria, al cariño y amor inquebrantable por la familia, son entre lo mas resonante. Las canciones los chistes.... quisiera aver tenido mas de eso.

I know God has blessed you all with beautiful memories which will keep her spiritually present in your lives forever. Blessings, Rebecca R. Quintero
