Shalay Benavides Love you Aunt Imy. I know you are happy now. You are in heaven with Uncle Harold and reunited with all your family you’ve missed for so long. Instead of being sad I know you would want everyone to rejoice for you for the wonderful life you lived walking in GODs path. Thank you for showing me the way when I was growing up. You are such a beautiful person, inside and out with such a big heart & so heavenly in such a horrible world we live in. You were like Heaven on earth being in your presence. We are blessed to have you here on earth as long as GOD had you here with us. Now his Angel is where she is meant to be. Enjoy heaven and I can’t wait to see you when I get there!
