La mejor forma de honrar tu vida es mantenerte viva en nuestros corazones por el cariño y dulzura con el que nos trataste siempre.

Norma ReyesSan Luis Potosí,
La Tía Luz... siempre la recuerdo con su hermosa sonrisa y actitud positiva ante la vida...
Esta actitud, que también su hermano Manuel, mi papá tenía: de disfrutar cada centimetro de la vida, a todo lo largo y ancho, con asombro y alegría ...
Pudimos hacer más juntas, pero lo que hicimos fue de calidad
No te voy a extrañar, porque siempre tu sonrisa estará en mi corazón y estarás cerca.
