It gives me great pleasure to pay tribute my new friend Mimi on International Women’s Day. This incredibly hard working woman, Mother, Grandmother, and soon-to-be friend could speak no english. I could speak little to no spanish, yet that never seemed a concern. Mimi welcomed our group to her Casa where she and three generations of her family cared for us during our stay in Havana. She and I seemed to understood each other, easy enough. It wasn’t long before we were laughing and hugging each day. When the news of my brothers passing was received, we found ourselves embracing in tears as she gently comforted me in my loss.
The Urban Dictionary describes the word ‘Mimi’ to mean ‘a wonderful friend. Sweet, funny, sarcastic, but GREAT and beautiful.’ How perfect.
