We did it with a lot of love, and we would do it a thousand times more. Christopher your eyes spilled love towards everyone. Your smile was contagious and rare. It always expressed the times you were happy & the times you were serious. You will forever be a superhero, because you my little Christopher radiated love despite your terminal condition. As a consequence of your condition, you did not walk or talk, but you were a child immediately happy because mom and dad took care of that. Ultimately, your condition became your kryptonite, but your smile will forever be your super power. We will love you forever.  You were, and you will always be special in the life of your parents and other family members and friends. For all learned to love you as you were.

Sra Clara Martìnez
Nació un 12 de Agosto de 1939 en la ciudad de Tampico Tamaulipas en donde creció y viviò hasta que conoció y después se casó con Guillermo Martìnez a quién amó y cuidò incesablemente, para después mudarse a Chicago Illinois y tener cuatro hijos Sylvia, Nora, Patricia y Martìn Martìnez.
Ella siempre fuè una mujer independiente, fuerte y desinteresada por ayudar a cualquier persona que lo necesitara, a causa de eso fuè muy querida y amada por toda persona que la conociera. Siempre se preocupò y luchò por el bienestar de su familia, además de ser devota y fiel a su religión (catòlica) la cual inculcò a su familia.
Su legado fuè mantener unida a su familia aún después de partir, siempre se le recordará por su ènfasis en pensar en los demás y no en ella misma.

When tomorrow starts without me

When tomorrow starts without me
And I’m not here to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me

I wish you wouldn’t cry
The Way you did today
While thinking of the many things
We did not get to say

I know how much you love me
As much as I love you
Each time that you think of me
I know you will miss me too

So When Tomorrow starts without me
Do not think we’re apart
For every time you think of me
Remember I’m right here in your heart
