Although I do not know the victim or her family, I would like to express my condolences and pray that God's peace will keep each one who is affected by the loss of Ana.

Ana will truly be missed by her extended family here at Stoddard. She was a very nice person and the family members and residents truly liked her. She always had a pleasant smile and greeted everyone that come on the first floor where she worked.

My prayers go out to her husband and her children. The family has a strong foundation in God and believes that God is in control of what happened...It is this belief that will get them through this tragedy.

May God be with them and the others victim's families.

ANA AND OSCAR

MY WIFE FROM BOLIVIA ALSO DIED AS A RESULT OF VEHICLE ACCIDENT.

IT TOOK HER 5 YEARS TO DIE, MUCH OF IT BEING BACK HOME WITH HER GREATER FAMILY IN LA PAZ.

I PERIODICALLY WENT TO SEE HER & THE FAMILY AND WAS PRESENT WHEN SHE DIED.

MAY YOU REST FOREVER IN GOD'S PEACE AND MAY GOD COMFORT OSCAR, YOUR HUSBAND AND YOUR CHILDREN.

Ana was a person dedicated to God and her children. We are thankful for the wonderful thoughts and prayers we have received from many people around world. We would ask the few people that have been calling us with hateful messages such as "you should all die or go home," to please respect our time of sorrow. We may be immigrants, but above all we are human beings. It is so despicable that you would choose this situation to relay your anger towards immigrants. Ana worked really hard to raise her family and gave her life for their well-being. ANA, WE LOVE YOU AND WILL MISS YOU.

Ana Fernandez was nothing but a good mother to the children she leaves behind. She dedicated her time to God and her children; moreover, greeted people with a smile. She will truly be missed and my prayers and condolences goes out to the family especially my cousins. God knows why he took her and I ask myself would I preferred her suffering in this world full of hate or her in peace in God's glory...I said In God's glory because I know others will be looking after my cousins and supporting them, even though Ana should have never left this world, but she will be missed and we now know she is in a better place. May God bless and WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU ANA!
