I want to thank everyone that has been funding me in this really hard time I really appreciate it . It's been really hard and even more that the us embassy and the mexican consulate are not helping bring my sisters body back with us and its costing us a lot to bring her back plus all the funeral expenses here and all the services for my sister. So I wanted to thank everyone that has been helping us .

I had never met Alejandra until that night at the Blue Parrot. I didn't even know her name until I read about her in stories about the aftermath of that tragedy. I'm merely a stranger who crossed paths with a sister in need of help and I tried... I REALLY tried my very best to get her the help she needed. It wasn't until the police threatened me to leave and after I no longer felt her pulse that left her side. Please know that she didn't die alone and that I comforted her with as much as I could give of myself in her last moments. I know this is all very sudden and painful for your family. I am truly sorry for your loss. If there are questions you need answers to, please do not hesitate to message me. God bless Alejandra and her family, my prayers are with you. - AC

Alejandra was a student assistant in my class last year. I work with students who have special needs. Alejandra was a beautiful soul. She was always smiling and she took the time to make friends with my students who could use a good friend from outside of their class. Alejandra was a sincere and genuine young lady who will truly be missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to her friends and family.

I was there. I held a girl by the hand and stopped her running into that stampede. I only wish I could have held this poor girl back too and told her to wait. Such a sad and tragic loss of a beautiful young life. The BPM organisers should make a significant contribution! R.I.P. Alejandra

Aaron, nunca hay palabras para estos momentos. Es un dolor muy grande. Le pido a Dios que les de resignación y paz. Conocí muy brevemente a tu hermana y a su amiga en Playa, y era una niña bella. Un ángel. Un abrazo a toda la familia.
