La ofrenda se la voy a dedicar a mi abuelita porque fue una persona muy especial para mi. Ella murió hace 3 años y se la quiero dedicar porque el mes que viene va ser el cuarto aniversario de su muerte. Se la quiero dedicar porque ella fue mi abuelita consentida y yo también fui su consentida. Aunque ella ya haya muerto, yo siento que siempre va estar con migo cuando y donde quiera este.

I am dedicating this ofrenda to my grandmother because she was a very special to me. She died 3 years ago and I want to dedicate this to her because this upcoming month she would be having her 4th year anniversary of her death. I want to dedicate this to her because she was my favorite grandmother and I too was her favorite grandchild. Even though she has died I feel that she will always be whenever and wherever I will be.
