We didn’t know this day would come, it happened all so fast. The Arciniega and Lopez family are very thankful for our community and for those who are helping. We appreciate it how much you guys are helping. The family gained a beautiful, strong, caring, loving angel she will always be with us in our hearts.

She will always be remembered as a “Fighter.” She never gave up until the end. I will always remember when she would say “mija hechale Muchas ganas a lo Que viene” that saying will always stay with me.

I know my mother will be cheering for all three of her kids. Every achievement we have is going to be dedicated to her, every step in life is for her. My mom was a very happy woman, she always had a smile on her face and she never let anything or anyone bring her down. She will be remembered in so many ways. Even though I can’t feel her nor hear her she will always have a space in our hearts forever and always, I love her so much mi angelito mio, my guardian angel
