Re: “Tess Martinez, 1983-2009

This past week has been a very difficult one for us. We are touched by the outpouring of kindness, sympathy and support we have received from friends, family and the community. We are especially grateful to the AZ Daily Star, Green Valley News/Sahuarita Sun and The Tucson Weekly for printing those beautiful articles about our Tess. Her family and friends were most grateful and even more impressed by their kind efforts. Your articles and others like it will help to memorialize the wonderful person that Tess was and her many achievements and aspirations during her life time.

Re: “Tess Martinez, 1983-2009

Having known Tess for most of her life, I came to love her and cherish her as one of my own. She could leave you wondering what adventure she may embark on next, but she always left you with a smile...
I remember our long distance conversations, our romps downtown, your indomitable spirit, and I will miss you sorely and never forget you, a part of my heart will always be with you... a true tragedy and loss to us all....
