    I remember cousin Lampy’s beautiful warm smile and kindness
    I never knew her name was Mary.
    Funny, my Mom Ramona Herrera use to call her “ Limpy” so hat’s how I remembered her.
    It wasn’t out of disrespect, my Mom use to call my Granddaughter Diana , not Deanna until she passed.
    My prayers are for the Camarena family for comfort
    I picture her well with the Lord Hallelujah!
    May she Rest in Heavenly Peace ❤️
