Micaela on the tracks

If I had to pick one word to describe you, that would be it.

Of course, a single word would never suffice.  Beautiful and poised come to mind as well.

But you have an inner strength, a spunkiness, that shows through in your personality. Treasure that strength.

Your family was a joy.

Your daughters are so beautiful and talented it’s no wonder Alberto couldn’t keep from smiling.

We had a few crazy ideas, and you were always willing to give them a try.

Y Alberto, me encantaba hablar con usted en la lingua pura de España.

Your girls have been growing so quickly.

It was a blast to work with them. They are so sweet. We can tell why you love them so much.

You two are lucky to have such tender daughters to cherish.

Enjoy these moments while they last. The next one along is sure to rock the boat a little.

Thanks for letting us share in the growth of your family. Your “little” children are taller than you are now.

These days won’t last forever. We’re glad to see that you are enjoying them. Living, loving, and laughing. You’ve got it figured out.
