  3. Betucha hermanita mia. Me duele no poder acompañar en este momento pero eso no impide para nada saber el amor que nos teniamos y tenemos, porque ya nos reencontraremos. No hay limite en la cantidad de bechos y abrazos que nos daríamos como cuando me volvi en marzo. Siempre juntas las tres. Te amo tanto… ♥️. Tu hermanita a quien le cambiaste los pañales Sussy

Que Dios te haya recibido en Sus Brazos y te hayas reencontrado con todos los que te precedieron. Un abrazo a la familia.
