Elizabeth Yaxtel Garcia Tapia

My name is Vicki Hallof and I am the principal of Mintie White Elementary School. On Sunday, March 19th we lost a valuable member of our school.  Elizabeth Yaxtel Garcia Tapia, a Second Grader, died tragically along with her father.
Elizabeth was a kind and caring student who loved to learn, and was always there for her friends. She enjoyed school and looked forward to recess where she could talk with her friends. She was a bright ray of sunshine at our school. We will miss her sweet smile and great laugh. Elizabeth Yaxtel is survived by two other siblings, her mother, and many members of her extended family.   If you do not have a credit card you are welcome to come to bring your money to the school and we will deposit in the GoFund me account.  
The money will be given to Elizabeth's mother to support the family's expenses and helping them to take care of the two remaining siblings. Mintie White will make sure that the family receives the money directly.
Please help us to support this family in their time of grief.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Tapia family at this time. The great and mighty eagles will be there for your family and offer the wind the Tapia family needs to rise above this terrible tragedy.
