Cuanta tristeza me ha causado esta noticia de tu partida.Vinieron ami tantos recuerdos de mi infancia cuando iba yo a jugar a tu apartamento en la Market en el primer piso que tenías una tortuga la cual querías mucho.No se si se acordarán de mí, porque a pasado tantos años pero yo nunca me olvido de tu linda sonrisa y de tus cuidados.Descanza en Paz Crucita.

Vieja, I will never forget you, you were like my other mother, as my mother "Pita", your comadre, loved you so much. I remember all those years growing up as a child at 63 Market Street, you lived on the 1st floor and we lived on the 2nd. We were always together celebrating everything as two beautiful families. Mami is going to be so happy to see you, you have a lot of catching up, te quiero mucho, mi vieja. QDEP
