I remember my Bestfriend sister Yvonne would sit in her moms Her kitchen a lot with her vitamins making us food when we were younger. I remember her smile beautiful soft voice and she was so very smart and witty funny at the same time. She always treated me like a second daughter. I spent a lot time in that house. I do loved her dearly she will be missed for sure. She’s in heaven now with my mom ... not in Pain anymore. She was so independent and for her not be independent it drove her crazy. Love El Frida I will see you again. ❤️❤️❤️ Lori Muha
