To the Perez and Smith families please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers. We personally feel very blessed and honored to have known Starla and to become "sort of" family. She was a classy lady who always spoke kindly and smiled when we were around her and as much as she will be missed it is wonderful to know that she is now in the arms of the Heavenly Father! Godspeed Starla! Love Wayne & Brenda Riley

Megan remembers how very kind she was to her when she was little at Christmas time. She lit up the room. She made everyone feel special.

I had Mrs. Perez for Science in middle school 2007. We did a leaf project and I picked poison ivy and oak, I ended up with it all over my face! She laughed and blessed my little heart when I showed her that I couldn't find the names for the two. That memory will live with me for life. I rejoice to know she is with God and was able to celebrate Christmas with Jesus Himself! Man, what an honor!!
