I never got the chance to meet my aunt (Lucy) since she died two years before I was born, but I will never forget her neither will her sister Raquel. I miss you even though I never got to meet you in person and I will never forget you. I love you aunt and I hope I get to see you in an afterlife.
Rest in peace
