Esperanza - 1909-2017

I
I wanted to dedicate this to my sweet Aunt who passed away today peacefully in her sleep at the age of 107.  She was so caring, compassionate, friendly, wise and an inspiration to all who knew her.
She was a proud lady and her family was her greatest accomplishment.  In her younger days she worked in a Bridal shop as a seamstress specializing in wedding dresses.  I will miss her so much but now we  have been blessed with so many beautiful memories.
I love you, my sweet Aunt

  16. Yikes - 107!
    How extraordinary Esperanza must have been and what amazing changes and world events she lived through. I enjoyed reading she was hoping to make it to 108. Esperanza obviously enjoyed her life and I think I remember you mentioning her birthday celebrations before. You will feel the loss deeply and I am thankful you have so many wonderful memories. Blessings, my friend, and I am truly sympathetic for you and your family for such a loss.
