Amy Winehouse-Back To Black (In Memoriam)

Twenty years ago, today, on February 16, 1993, my maternal grandmother, Juana "Blanca" Lopez de los Reyes, died. I was the last person in my family to speak to her, on the phone, just hours before she passed, at the age of 84.

In Memoriam of her, whom I think about invariably, and who, God willing, I will see again, one day in Heaven, I dedicate this song, by one of my favorite all time artists, whom I adored and left us, all too quickly.
