  1. God bless my tia Ofilia!
    Last time I saw my tia was in 2008. We had a wonderful time reminiscing about the early 70’s and her children, my cousins. I had such a wonderful time during those years.
    I will miss her forever and she’ll never be forgotten!
    May u rest in peace!
    With love and tears, your niece,
    Alma Torres-Reed
