Tía I keep remembering the day we hung out. We messaged back-and-forth in the morning about what we needed for dinner and what time. You said the twins were still sleeping. You made flautas my mom made rice and beans she said “she had messed up on the rice” you said “no it’s fine it’s good”. You were so happy. You are such a wonderful person and think about everyone else. The energy you give out as loving positive and welcoming. I am so thankful and I think God that he gave me the time to spend time with you. You met Shane you made him laugh and smile so much that night. I know he loves you like we do. You raised two amazing kids and I’m so thankful to have them in my life. When I see them I see you and I love it. Please let us to continue to feel the energy again and again. We love and miss you dearly tía.

Tia at first I didn’t want to believe or accept this news. It took me a while to accept I wasn’t going to see you again. I will forever cherish when you would record and cry when I sang shallow, it made me happy to make you happy, and I’m happy that I got to sing to you lone last time. And if I ever do go and sing in the voice I know you will be there cheering me on. I’m going to miss seeing you around. Hearing your voice, your laugh, and seeing you smile. I love you Tia so much and you will forever be in my heart❤️

Tía Sonia I love you so so much! I promise, if I’m ever feeling down or sad I’ll just remember one of the talks we’d have. You made feel happier when I was down and really made see the bigger picture at times when I couldn’t. Talks with you were my favorite, and I’ll forever cherish them. Thank you for everything. For being the best Tia, the kindest person, and for always smiling even when times were hard. I miss you, and can’t wait for the day I get to finally see you again ♥️
