“My grandmother, I celebrate your beautiful passage through this land. You were strength until the last of your days. A Titan, a Gladiator, a Praetorian who struggled to stand up until the last hours of her life. Always, against all odds. And you forged us warriors to face any adversity in life. You taught us that mischievous sense of humor, and you showed us how to deal with our emotions by singing and dancing. Fly free into the arms of our Blessed Father. Your daughter will be waiting for you too! (She told me yesterday at dawn between dreams).
You are now free precious soul, there is no more pain, there is no more sorrow, that body was left behind, now you just ARE! God our Father have you in his arms, Evita ours. Here we will celebrate your wonderful life my beautiful grandmother, and you will always be close to ours. I love you granny. I love you very, very, very much.”
