Dear Gina,

Renee told me that you were collecting memories that people had of your mother, and there is one interesting one that oddly enough always makes me remember her.

When I was young your mother would take us to the grocery store – do you remember, the one that was up the street from your house? She would always buy us Gansitos, which was at that time (and still is) my favorite pastry. We would put them in the freezer, and eat them cold. To this day, whenever I see them at the grocery store I remember that.

Later in life, when I would visit Mexico, she would take me to your Father’s latest projects. The two I remember best were the Mexico City Library, and the National Auditorium – which was still under construction. In fact, the last time I was in the Auditorium was with her – and I have never actually seen the finished work inside.

I always enjoyed seeing her. She was a truly unique person – she had all the good qualities a person can have: Charm, generosity, kindness, empathy, courtesy, patience, integrity, and wisdom, just to name a few.

I hope you are all doing well.

Keep in touch,
