According to relatives, Nineth Pereyra’s joy was immediately apparent and contagious. “If I was mad — for whatever reason — she would, little by little, do something and bring a laugh out of me. She was always there for people,” her older sister Aidee Pereyra said. Nineth was “always giving positive feedback. Whenever someone was sad, she would always be the one to cheer them up.”
