    Guadalupe was a wonderful, caring, smart, and intelligent young lady. She gifted beyond her years and was very hard-working in Honors English class. I enjoyed working with Guadalupe and will always remember her quiet, passionate, confident spirit. If you knew Guadalupe, you knew she worked very hard in class, she worked through the challenges without grumbling, but most of all her spirit of humility and meekness was seen in everything she accomplished. She will be missed…RIH

    I am so saddened to hear of Guadalupe’s passing! I had her in Algebra class a few years ago and in more recent years saw her in the Media Center. She was so smart and I know would have succeeded at anything she decided to do. She was always respectful, polite and so sweet. I will keep her family and friends in my prayers. God Bless!

    Guadalupe will continue to be a light in this world. As I remember her, I think about her quiet strength. When she spoke, people listened intently because of the way she valued the power of her words. She was about the business of success.

    Guadalupe would identify goals and pursue them vigorously; she inspired me. She asked all of the right questions, but only as a last resort. She was always willing to do the hard work and take on the challenges of each day. Thank you, Guadalupe, for the light that you shined during your time here.
