Yesterday, we said goodbye to my incredible mother Ana Delia Colon.  As many of you know, my mother has been in and out of hospitals since my father has passed.  Her health was so hard to watch, but it only showed how strong our matriarch truly was.  She truly fought for her life up until the very end.  She was a true example of what it was like to be a good mother, family member, neighbor and friend.  If you knew my mother and father, you most likely knew that they loved to laugh and be the life of the party.  To flag someone down in front of the house while they used to sit on their little porch and catch up.  They wanted to look out for everyone that they could.  Even if you were not family, they would make you feel like it.
