Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My name is Fernanda and I’m second generation am from El Salvador.  My grandmother died at the age of 49 years old and at that time I was eleven years old and the only memory I have of her is that blue blanket. I don’t remember where she bought it but she did when I was a baby. She was like a mom to me because most of the time I lived with her because my mom was living in the United States. I remember she was a good person with others and she always helped the people in need. I would love her to live a little bit longer so she could go to my graduation in America. The cause of her death was that she had cancer and that was the thing that killed her at such a young age. That blanket would be the only thing that would make me remember all the good memories we spent together in El Salvador.
