Aurora was a vibrant individual who liked anything with penguins. She had a compassionate heart and embraced life, both the good and the bad. She loved horror movies and always saw the comedy in them. She liked metal and had a passion for drawing. She had a wicked sense of humor and always laughed at “Tio Mateo’s” jokes. Her passing has left a hole in our hearts.
