So very sorry for the loss of your beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother... and so much more. She was always such a joy to see at Zumba! I'll never forget her sitting in the back of the room, always with a smile on her face.. doing zumba from the chair! She's still with you, little things will touch your heart as the days go by and you'll realize it's her, watching over all of you with love, protection and guidance. Love, Naomi
