                               "A SPECIAL DEDICATION OF LOVE AND APPRECIATION"

When I search to recall the sweetest memories of my childhood, it always seems to take me back to

when I was between the age of 14-19 years old.

How sweet life was back then...

I was a good kid and had the best set of friends, anyone could ever hope for!

Although, we had our growing up issues to deal with, we were all such great loving kids.

We were better than 'Family'. We always came straight home after school and never got into

any kind of trouble. We had a love for dancing, singing and play acting.

We had no idea, what life had in stored for us, yet we dreamed big! We made plans and we

played and pretended in our dream world, filled with music, love and laughter!

We each admired one another and helped each other cope with any problems, life through our way.

I am smiling, just thinking of the past memories, we were enriched with!

The one person, who I owe much of my 'Problem solving' skills to is my 'Tita Rita'.

She is the mother of my sweet friend, Ellis, who is one phenomenal human being!

Tita Rita was so good to every one of us...

Not enough appreciation is ever given to the back-ground people, who helped along the way.

This is for her. A 'Thank You' from the bottom of my heart and my soul...

Dear Tita Rita,

You were always there to feed us, guide us and scold us, when we needed it. You saw the good

hearts, that each one of us possessed and you groomed us to be aware and prepare for the

possible pain, that life might have had around the corner. How I loved listening to you, and your

stories of life's complexities. To be honest, I was 'Starstrucked'.

You might have seen something in my eyes, that told you, I was paying attention?

I was!

Now that I am all grown up, I am happy to tell you that all the time you invested in each one of us,

especially me, was incredibly fruitful. I reflect a lot of your teachings to others and for that,

I cannot praise you enough! Tita Rita, I will never forget your kindness and fun personality!

I will treasure the old memories of us, dancing in your living room, then you calling us to drink

'Punch'. You gave us your best and wanted us to never feel negative or as though

we were missing out on what the older kids were doing!

On behalf of Ellis, Pam, Jenny,Cecile, Jamie and any others that were part of our 'Clan',

at the time...

We Thank You and Praise you, for being the 'Wonder Woman' that you are!
