Gosh this actress was spectacular.  She helped so many causes, for me in particular her help and presence with the Wall Las Memorias AIDS Project in Los Angeles meant a lot.  She could be counted on to help in whatever way she could.  You will be missed and thank you for leading the way in so many aspects.

Wow I was shocked when I heard of her passing.  She was an amazing actress and I have to say she was so good that when she played the part in the Selena movie as Yolanda I truly hated her (on screen).  This is why I know she was an amazing actress because she truly made me hate her as Yolanda.  May she rest in peace and may she not be forgotten and may her family have peace in their hearts to be able to go through this tough time in their lives.  God bless
