September 13, 2008



Thank you for keeping us informed. Aleida had so many friends all over the world that she touched with her spirit, personaility and her zest for life. Even though we never meet, and only commuincated through emails, phone, scrapbook message boards, blogs, etc. I loved her, and my heart is heavy because I will no longer be able to email her and have her cuss at me, or say something no one expected her to say. She will be missed terribly. I can't imagine if myself and many others only knew her via the internet and have been affected by this lost, my heart goes out to those who knew her in person. I will pray for peace for your family. God Bless

She was a beautiful person and my thoughts are with her children and her family. I just feel this weight of sadness for her. And for Amy, the driver - just 22 - what a heavy burden to bear. May we all leave our phones in our purses and pay attention to the road. How very sad.

What Happens Next...


How very kind of you to think of passing on information to all of us. Thank you.

I hope you feel the power and strength of all of the prayers that are being sent your way.

You and your family are in our prayers.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. ~ Psalm 23:4


I heard about this hartbreaking news through the scrappers community. And I didn't know Aleida in person but she looks like a lovely person, so vibrant and so much in love with her family. So my thoughts are with you Brandon and with your two beautiful little children. It must be so hard to go on without her. Wishing you a lot of strenght in this difficult time. We'll be thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers.

Words cannot express how saddened and sorry I am for your loss!


I did not have the privilege to know Aleida personally but my heart is breaking reading about her passing away. My heart and my prayers goes out to her husband and her children in their difficult time!

Yesterday I knew about this over the scrapping community. Yes, almost all the important forums, tons of bloggers, evryone was feeling sad... I surffed around and read what everybody wrote, saw this blog, her galleries at two sites, her Flickr site,... I was sad too although I didn't know her personally {heart}

Scrapbooking is a great way to make "family" and to leave great memories; now you have all her memories in her great pages.

i am truly sorry. i ran across this blog while 'blog hopping' and being a scrapper, i feel like i 'know' of Aleida in some small way.

you and your family are in my thoughts a prayers.


My beautiful Aleida, I came here today hoping that this was all a dream, as soon as I read September 13... this is so hard, I'm very angry, very upset, confused. I look at my phone hoping that I'll see a new email from you, I keep coming back to your blog I see your pictures and I say to myself this is not happening.

My heart goes out to Brandon and the kids, I know how much you loved them. Mami was telling me stories about you as kid, and how much you look like your mother. Mami's not doing very well, I know that you are having fun with abuelo Flor in heaven and that you're watching us from up above. You were more than a cousin, my big sister, my confident, my inspiration.

I love you girl, I will see you again, we will have fun

Until we meet again, as I always wrote you, lots of love from la isla bonita



I'm so sorry for you loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you family and friends at this time.


Sorry for your loss. God bless you and your family.

I keep coming back to read this, cause I just can't process it.
She is my dear, dear friend, and I miss her like you have no idea.
She was an amazing person and I feel extremely lucky to have had her in my life.
Know that you and those beautiful kiddos have been in my mind non stop.
Sending you big, huge hugs.

This is just so sad for you Brandon, your beloved children and family...I did not know Aleida personally but from reading all that I have about her, I wish I did...she seems like the kind of person that anyone would be honoured and lucky to have as a friend. My thoughts and prayers go to you and your family.

Brandon, I am so sorry for your loss. Aleida touched so many of us with her love of life and her encouraging words. She loved you guys with all her heart and i will miss her greatly. My prayers are with you and your babies.


I am so sorry. Aleida was a beautiful talented woman and loving mother. I didn't know her except through here and the love she had in her heart shined through and through. She will be missed deeply by all who's life she touched.
