Nataly was a very smart and artistic person. Like her mother, she enjoyed going to antique shops and finding decorations for her room. She had a very goofy personality and could never walk into a room quietly. She'd either have a weird walk while entering of start speaking in a random accent. Nataly brought so much joy. She also liked doing tattoos. She'd practice on artificial skin. Her drawings were awesome. She often used her artwork to create tributes for her mother. Nataly drew an idea she had for a tattoo and gave it to her tattoo artist to do. It was a cactus plant with her mother's middle name on it. Nataly shared so many similarities with her mother especially their artistic sides and love for antiques. Now that Nataly has passed away, she gets to be up there with her mommy. We know in our hearts they are together right now, finally being able to bond. Nataly and Maria, we love you. May you both forever remain in our hearts.
