Wela, I love you soo much...my world is empty now that you are gone. Just knowing i will never see your face again hurts my heart beyond words. You are the best grandmother in this world, you always loved me, took care of me and held me. I remember when i used to cry at night cause my head hurted and you used to go and get me a hot towl and put in on my head for me and rub my legs... i remember you in the living room dancing to ricky martin and watching sabado giagante... i used to love getting in you bed and falling asleep with you while you watched your novelas at night or when you used to yell at me for going in your room and using all your hair grease... My wela what am i going to do with out you? You are my HERO... There is no one in this world that can replace you so for that my heart will always have an empty space, that belongs only to you!!! I love you Wela...Your #1Lila
