Farewell to a Special Lady
She refused to allow a massive heart attack one week shy of her 96th birthday stop her from one final celebration on earth before departing. My Grandpa's youngest sister, Maria Cuca Rubalcaba O'Brien, born 7/5/20, passed away on 7/6/16. I will never forget the day I showed her my coin collection when I was a young boy. She stood up to get something from her bedroom – a shiny gold coin from Mexico to add to my collection. Her generosity and kind spirit will never be forgotten. May her soul rest in peace. Good-bye, aunt Cuca. I love you.
