I just came online, and this is the first thing I found. I know some of you were friends with Estrellita, like me, and that you would want to know. My condolences go out to Jeannie and her family in this sad time.
I am Estrellita's sister Jeannie. I am writing to all of you to say thank you for making her smile everyday. Estrellita passed away August 16 2007, of complications from non Hodgkins lymphoma.

Estrellita,I was blessed with your friendship,I will never forget you!Now you shine among all the stars.....Rest In Peace,My Dear....
You were a sunflower in the Garden Of Life to me.....
Don't grieve for me, for now I am free I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard hi call I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found the peace at close of day.
If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me, God wanted me now; He has set me free.
THE WORDS OF ST. MONICA’S SOUL TO ST. AUGUSTINE
“If you love me, do not weep.
If you only knew the gift of God and what Heaven is! If only you could hear the angels’ song from where you are, and see me among them! If you could only see before your eyes the eternal fields with their horizons, and the new paths in which I walk! If only you could contemplate for one moment the Beauty that I see, Beauty before which all others fail and fade! Why do you who saw me and loved me in the land of shadows, why do you think you will not see me and love me again in the land of unchanging realities? Believe me, when death breaks your chains as it has broken mine, when, on the day chosen by God, your soul reaches Heaven where I have preceded you, then you will see her who loved and still loves you. You will find her heart the same, her tenderness even purer than before. God forbid that on entering a happier life, I should become less loving, unfaithful to the memories and real joys of my other life. You will see me again transfigured in ecstasy and happiness, no longer waiting for death, but ever hand in hand with you, walking in the new paths of light and life, slaking my thirst to the full at the feet of God from a fount of which one never tires, and which you will come to share with me. Wipe away your tears, and if you love me truly, weepno more.”
One of the greatest friends for Darren and I, she lived with a lot of happiness when Darren and I were together. She really had a great soul. A dear friend for Mexico group. She always had a good morning a good night a nice word to say to this group.
We didn´t only lost a great member, we lost an angel inside care2. She IS (because her soul will be always inside my heart) one of the most wonderful people, a soul without complex, envy, hate. She loved LIFE. She loved people and animals. This is the less I can do to honor her. She deserves HEAVEN.
