A cousin of my grandma, Carmen Cruz Guzman, born in 1900, taught me this bedtime prayer, in Spanish :
Cuatro esquinas tiene mi cama,
cuatro ángeles me acompañan.
(Four corners has my bed;
four angels accompany me.)

A lot more Spanish was used by my grandma's generation of Chamorros.  My auntie Carmen Guzman lived all the way till the late 1980s and I learned a lot of stuff from her.
