Hugs for Aunt Linda and all the family. RIP, Chris. I didn't know you for a long time, but it was enough to be in this Colombian ❤️ heart . Your Christmas card was always the first that I received all those years... and it does not matter if I only had a few moments to share with you, especially during The Ox Roast ... Again, there was enough time to love you and your family. It was an honor meeting you. I feel blessed being part of your beautiful family . My other family.
