I have so many memories of Nani. Nani, a truly sweet person with a good heart. Memories growing up with you - one of them was of us being scared in our shared room at the Lakimau house - it was haunted and you and I would hear noises and keep each other safe.

Memories of us with mom and memories at grandmas house. How you were there for us when mom and grandma passed. You staying with me sleeping over the hospital when grandma was at her last days.

Our parties at grandmas house.

Your laughter and beautiful smile, I will truly miss. I love you, Nani. You are my sis.
Rest In Peace - ❤️
