      I know it would tear you apart if you somehow had the predictive ability to know that you wouldn't get the chance to meet every single one of your grandchildren and watch them grow into adults and dance at their weddings. Her father was Sixto Ortega and her mother, Ramona. I have learned a lot in life through her eyes through her experiences, success and failures. And I must accept that there are some things in this life that can't be changed, no matter how desperately we want them to be. As soon as I think it, instantly a voice pops in and suggests, "How could your best days possibly be without your mother?

      All of her children learned English and so did she. Like an artist who passed away before completing a painting, your role in my life and my children's lives feels unfinished, yet revered for its ultimate intent. What happened to [the author], the fact she was able to break away from that traumatic situation and become the strong woman she is now, is really amazing. What did you do to get through the difficult times in your life? She washed her clothes in communal tubs, went to jamaicas on Saturday nights, and cared for her first three daughters.

      As I look at my journey into motherhood with Raleigh, I am even more in awe of how you not only managed but thrived in your role as a mother. How did Grandfather propose? It helped ease the sadness of your death to know that Grandpa was waiting for you on the other side. She has taken care for me since I was a newly born child.
