This is my grandma, Eliades Allende. She was born in Puerto Rico and came to America as a teen. Shortly after, she met my grandpa. They have now been married for over 50 years!
Ever since I was little, I remember how much I loved listening to my grandma's stories. She may have one of the cutest accents ever, but she also has an incredible strength and an amazing heart. I have learned a lot about faith and commitment from her.
In 2001, the day before 9/11, her father passed away. That next year, on 9/9/02 she lost one of her sons. Through all of this she has shown how amazing of a woman she is. Her smile and laughter has brought so much joy to my life and to the lives of others!
She is not only known for are her fantastic fashion sense but also for her sassy dance moves!!
*She is Beautiful!*
