Reader tributes

I saw Maria's relatives on the news and my heart broke. I've never met this family, but the pain and desperation in her aunt's words really touched me. I specifically went on this list in hopes of not seeing her name.
My prayers go out to all who have lost someone in this tragedy, and especially to the Villalobos family who have lost such a young daughter. God bless all of you and may you find comfort in knowing we are all still praying for you.
