I would say her sisters are most important to her, and even after they die, they remain central to her life, always reminded of them because she, in effect, the oracle of their memories.  Jaimito, her husband, is also important.  Even though he is very patriarchal she still loves him very much, and she is glad they are able to reconcile their marriage.  They do divorce later, however, probably as a result of the death of the butterflies.  Because she is so dedicated to family, I would lump her three children, Enrique, Rafael, and David. as next important in her life, even though we do not learn much about them. Because she is so close to all of her family members, it is difficult to choose the most important.
