Liliana was a strong-willed young woman and had the attitude of “I’m gonna get it done!’ She took that mind set in life at all times and got things done. Along with “I’m gonna get it done!’ Liliana was very competitive especially with her brother, Eddie. Liliana’s passion and heart was her family, she loved everyone and showed it in so many ways. Liliana left an imprint on the lives and hearts of many, she will be deeply missed. Liliana’s love for dancing, will live on forever, now that she is dancing with the angels, because “Angels Never Stop Dancing.”
