Her approach to life, embodied in her saying, "Querer es poder" (Where's there's a will, there's a way), gave power to many of our undertakings. We will miss her strong sense of integrity, her courage, and her love for each of us, but we are proud that her legacy lives on through us.

Rebeles (Arturo) and daughters Sonia, Anita, and Olivia Rebeles; Martha I. Guerra and sons Sergio and Arturo Guerra; Oscar L.
