In memory of Loretta Melendez

At age 8 to be 9 was the same year my mother’s life was taken from us. This man wanted something inappropriate from my mamma, and she refused and said no, so the man took her life. She was age 27 at that time in 1992, leaving four young kids behind. Still to this day, I’m age 35, I have never been able to heal, nor do i think i can until justice is served. It’s still a ongoing case. I will not give up the fight for my mamma’s justice. I have God, I pray every night faithfully for her soul’s freedom .

Love you mamma?? never forgotten still will fight till justified. ?
