elevated oDlh0 Pina will always be remembered for the love she had for her family and friends. Her selflessness showed in every aspect of her life. She was given the nick name bowl of sugar by people who had only just meet her. To have known her was a blessing. No matter what trails she was forced to fight in her every day life she always took the time to send all her loved ones messages to show them she was thinking of them. A mother is always known as the glue that holds a family together, but Pina’s had an extra special strength. She always knew how to make everyone come together, make them feel special and loved, encouraged them that they could accomplish anything, and always had a little funny joke or one liner to make everyone laugh. Her family looked up to her and admired her strength and determination to keep fighting and pushing through, she was truly and inspiration, the best role model any child could ask for. Her good morning and good night messages will be truly missed. They will now be replaced by the sweet little signs we know she will be sending everyone who’s lives she has touched. Forever in our hearts and in our beautiful memories. Thank you for being you.
