Curaçao was struck by tragedy‬ on August 4, 2013. Our love and prayers go out to the families and friends of the three deceased: Kristen Naomi de Jesus Leyba (32), Monique Yvonne Francisca van Meerwijk (58) and Elton Marcus Montesant (67).

Taken from us way too soon in a car accident… bursting with life and chasing their dreams… may they rest in peace.

Kristen’s final Facebook post:  “As for me, all I know is that I know nothing” – Socrates

Our Facebook community shared some of our favorite Curaçao photos‬ yesterday. Virtual bear hugs. Please enjoy them as well as each and every day.
