The world has lost a beautiful person! Thank you for all the great memories! Your friend poopsie.

One of my dearest friends. We had so many great times together. I'll miss you very much.

Antoneta you are quite a woman. In all my life I haven't met anyone like you. You've lightened my life in many ways. Such as your humor, your religion, and most importantly your heart. Your memory will live on in the hearts of those who love you. In my belief I know we'll be together again soon. Put in a good word for me with God. I'll not say goodbye just that I will see you soon. I love you,. XO Susie
