Amparo wore her heart on her sleeve, she welcomed and cared deeply for everyone she knew. Her presence filled up the room with warmth and love. After many years working as a skilled seamstress, she dedicated the rest of her life shaping and enriching the lives of her grandchildren. She loved food, she loved cooking with her daughter, she enjoyed singing and scenic walks during autumn afternoons. Her eternal laugh, smile, and spirit lives within us and our memories forever.
