CandleMy Aunt light up a room....with her smile. She was loving, thoughtful, caring, humorous and so sweet. She was always the life of the party! I will never forget her generosity, she would give you everything if she had nothing. I am going to miss her so much she was my support system, my guide and my light at the end of the tunnel.
I am going miss her text's and phone calls. I know she is our Angel watching over us.

Love you mi Tia Janie "Sanjuy"
