Dede grieves for all her sisters. She holds their pictures and has thoughts of love and remorse.

Dede realizes she is speaking to the picture of Minerva, as if she were assigning her a part, pinning her down with a handful of adjectives, the beautiful, intelligent, high-minded Minerva. “And Maria Teresa, ay, Dios,” Dede sighs, emotion in her voice in spite of herself. “Still a girl when she died, pobrecita, just turned twenty-five.” Dede moves on to the last picture and rights the frame, “Sweet Patria, always her religion was so  important.” (Alvarez 6)
