She enjoyed music and dancing, especially Latino/Afro-Caribbean and other cultural pursuits, as well as crafts at which she excelled. Above all, Mimi enjoyed people, especially children and young people. She was deeply loved by her children and husband. She and her mother developed a strong bond, above and beyond the regular parent to child relationship. She managed to touch so many lives with her love and her joyful personality. She generously shared her home, her food, her understanding, and her love with anyone who crossed her path. We will forever bask in the light of her smile and the kindness of her spirit. Let us cherish, and celebrate this vibrant and blessed soul as she makes her journey back Home.
