Mercedes was born in El Paso, TX on October 18, 2000, to William B. Huffman Jr. and Tammy Huffman. She was known as Sady by her family and as Meche by her beloved friends.
She grew up a military brat until the age of 16. By the age of 7, Sady had traveled to many parts of the world, but her love for travel did not stop there. She loved to read books and go to the beach.
Sady was of strong Christian faith which shown in everything she did. She was loving and kind. She loved her mother who was also her best friend. She dedicated herself to helping others and putting them first. She was dependable and a very hard worker. Sady had the most beautiful and contagious smile and a compassionate spirit. Her smile could light up the whole room and was hard to miss. A smile was always on her face, and it made others smile as well. Sady was loved dearly by her friends. She made an impact on everyone’s life. She was one of the most beautiful old souls we have ever known.
One of her greatest passions in life was rescuing animals. She loved all animals and had her own pet room which included guinea pigs, ferrets, hamsters, rabbits, and geckos.
Sady was a sophomore in college at West Texas A&M University. She was planning to go to Veterinary School to fulfil her ultimate dream of having her own animal sanctuary which she would create alongside her mom, and the twenty animals she already had.
Sady worked at Teddy Jack’s where she did just about everything. She started as a host moved up to expo, server, bartender, learned the kitchen, and eventually became a key manager.

I didn’t know Mercedes but what I see and hear she inspired many on this earth. What a sweet beautiful angel! Heaven needed a Beautiful Angel. Love ❤️ you Friend. ♥️🙏✝️
Rest high upon that mountain my sweet friend. I will miss that sweet smile and that infectious personality I enjoyed every week at Teddy Jacks. We never understand why God takes the ones we love home way to early but his mission with you was complete and the impact you made in your short time on earth will impact us all for years to come. It will be a great day for me to get that hug when I walk through those pearly gates and share Heaven with you.
Rest in peace beautiful . I remember the day grace introduced us high school was fun with you guys, you always had a smile on your face no matter what. I’m so sorry that you left Earth so soon god had other plans for you even tho life isn’t fair and things always seems to happen to the wrong people 🙁 I pray your mom finds peace and is able to heal through this tough time <3
Tammy, It is difficult for me to find words to express how sorry I am to hear of your daughters passing. Please know that I will be praying for you and your family. It sounds like heaven gained a beautiful soul.
Tammy I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I wish I could help you carry this weight. I know that the impact she had on others will ripple and touch the lives of many. She is beautiful in and out and I pray that her memories bring you joy, strength and, happiness.
“If I should die and leave you here a while,
be not like others sore undone, who keep
long vigils by the silent dust, and weep.
For my sake – turn again to life and smile,
nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do
something to comfort weaker hearts than thine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
and I, perchance may therein comfort you.” – Mary Lee Hall
I will honor her memory by recusing, loving and caring for the animals she wanted to dedicate her life to.
One of the most wonderful, beautiful people I will ever know. Nobody is like Mercedes. Always smiles when she was in the room.
