My Tanta Bep was a loving woman she used to look after me and my brothers when we were small. She made all kinds of things for us because she cared, sprinkle sandwhiches being one of the favorites for snacks. She was fantastic with her crafty skills and made me a tonne of barbie stuff to play with and a crochet doilies that i have treasured all of these years.
i will miss you and Love you always!
