Saying Goodbye, thousand of miles away.

Good bye Grandma, Good bye Abu. Thanks for the countless trips to the beach, for the freshly made Arepas every morning with my favorite Cheez Whiz filing. Thanks for taking care of us, when my Mom and Dad went on trips. Thanks for being a cool Grandma, who was always cheerful and positive about life. Thanks for being a woman role model, a feminist, who worked until your 80s, because you loved it, because you felt passion. I hope your spirit lives in me, as much as your blood runs in my genes. I know that your are resting now. I know that your are in peace. It just kills me to be so many miles away from you. Kills me that I can not say good bye to you properly, and that I can not hug my Dad at this time. As I can not be present, this is my eulogy to you. Hope you read it in heaven. Love. Te ama. Descansa en Paz. Adri

Grandma and Me. We look a lot a like!
