She was very friendly, loving and caring; she always had the ability to make great friends everywhere she went. She was a strong independent woman and a great friend. She loved spending long hours playing “loteria” with family, it was serious competition. She was a very smart person, always had an answer even for the most difficult situations. A wise woman, who always knew how to give comfort and love.She enjoyed cooking, and sharing food with family and the very important after dinner coffee with long fun conversations about life. Her favorite dessert was cake, but only very special cake. She loved nature, birds and plants, a walk on the beach or the park will make her happy, especially with her little Peque.
She will be dearly missed.
