The world today has lost an amazing woman, she was strong, smart, loving, kind, and beautiful. She was wise and knew how to laugh at simple things. She loved coffee, plantains, and beans not in the order. She worked until she could no longer stand on her feet, that was when she was 104 years old. I will always carry your teachings, and memory in my heart and all I will ever do will be done in your honor. I am blessed to carry your genes, to have known you, to have rub your legs, to have kiss you, comb your hair while you rested from your 15 hours work day. I will always love you and carry your memory forever. I love you MAMA Polina!
