This comes from a friend of Sammantha Salas, 16, of Alhambra. Salas was shot to death outside her father’s apartment in Monrovia. No arrests have been made. Her mother and others are hoping that a reward will be established to help capture the killers, who used a machine gun in the attack.
In Loving Memory of Sammantha Salas
December 19, 1991 – January 26, 2008
You left us loving memories
your love is still our guide.
Although we cannot see you,
You’re always by our side.
These are a few phrases of “The Chain of Family” quoted on Sammantha’s prayer card at her funeral.
Sammantha Salas in her 16 years on this earth left beautiful memories, she was a great student at Alhambra High School. She was a member of Saint Vincent de Paul Society at All Souls Catholic Church in Alhambra, serving the most needy in our Community. She along with her mother Jeanette help serve Thanksgiving dinner to All Souls Community last November.
She help care for her Grandmother who is ill and loved both her Grandparents, Great Grand Mother Mercy and the rest of her family.
She looked after her little sister Brittney, who does not quite understand the impact of the most cruel thing that happened to her big sister.
She loved to knit, sew and design hand bags.
