Wherever she went Vanessa was the life of the party and there wasn’t anyone who could stop her from singing Como La Flor by Selena wherever she was. Her heart was full of joy and love. She was unstoppable, there was no thing such as a limit.

  1. Oh Vanessa, I have so many memories of us. I can’t imagine what your family is going through. I love you and I will be praying for your family.

  2. Vanessa, I’m thankful for the friend you have always been and the family you included me into. If I’ve ever hurt you or have done you wrong, I know you kept love and forgiveness in your heart for me. The memories we have shared were filled with laughs and thankfully we even have nephews together! I cannot believe you went home so early! And yet I am thankful that God blessed you with a life filled with love and complexity, Because you were a nurturing friend, and in a lot of ways, a great role model. He created an angel out of you, and you will forever be remembered as so. The last time I saw you and heard your voice, was over a video call. I’ll always remember the sincerity in your voice when you said you were missing me. Be at peace my love and fly with the most high. I miss you friend. I love you forever.
