Esmeralda Alaniz was loved and cared for by everyone. She had such a contagious smile and knew how to cheer everyone up. Esmie was such a wonderful sister, daughter, and an even better mother who gave up her life to protect her own daughter and grandchildren. It crushes her family to know that her life came to an end in such a tragic and unexpected way. We are asking our community, family, and friends to help our family raise the funds necessary to give her a well deserving funeral with love and dignity.
