To all my cousins, I’m so sorry for your loss. Tia Maca was a very special lady. No matter how busy she was she always stopped to give me a kind word, wisdom, and a special hug. She always treated me with love and respect, which I will remember always. I will carry your wisdom, love and strength will me for the rest of my days. Rest in peace Tia. God Speed.
