MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Fernando Santos said his daughter Valery was the light of his world. He said his beautiful 16-year-old girl was always laughing, and he described her as outgoing and smart. Valery and her 14-year-old friend Emily Luna died on Saturday in a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Northwest 79th Street and Northwest 18th Avenue. “My daughter died, literally, instantly,” said Jennifer Ospina, Emily’s mother. “My whole family is going through it.”The crash was hours before Valentine’s Day, so the girls’ family and friends delivered flowers and heart-shaped balloons in front of the restaurant where witnesses are also still dealing with the tragedy.
