I first met Tonita on my first trip out of the United States when I went by myself to Gurabo. I stayed with her and my aunt and uncle there. I had gone to celebrate her quinceanera. She was a beautiful girl, voluptuous with long black hair. She had a boyfriend whom she later married. At the time, she was too young to have a boyfriend so they would walk around the plaza with me standing between them as they talked. I found it strange at the time and kind of quaint. Over the years, I saw her again when I would travel to Puerto Rico or once when they had traveled to New York. We were never close as cousins but I felt a kinship towards her. I recall going to Puerto rico a year after her wedding. She had gained a lot of weight and had cut her beautiful hair. I realized that she had done this to ward off any man who might look her way. Her husband had been her brothers best friend and had been in the fatal accident that had killed her brother at 19. I never got to meet her daughters though I believe that one of them died from drugs.
