ARNOLD, MICHELLE DAWN January 26, 1971-January 27, 2014 From Mom Today is one year since you have been gone. There is not an hour nor day that goes by that your "Camarolyn" doesn't think of you. I miss your beautiful smile, your amazing talent and your incredible courage. Yesterday would have been your 44th birthday and I feel the emptiness in my heart but I feel your spirit with me every single minute of every day. I know that you now celebrate your birthday with GOD, Grandma, Grandpa and Lori and with all of us through eternity. I love you my beautiful little girl. Until we meet again.Mom (and Skippy, too!) From Dad Michelle, yesterday was our celebration of your day of birth in 1971. A year ago yesterday you whispered "Dad, I don't know why you're so worried. I'm not going anywhere." We lost you early the following morning. Although you struggled to share that lucidity, your wonderful, creative mind, strong presence and proverbial vision of self gave me what I now realize is that every day we all know you are with us and that all of us are united for eternity. Sweet Girl, I sorely miss you. All my love. Dad From Courtney My Michelle-Lei-Lei: As hard as it was to lose you 1 year ago, living without you has been even harder. I hope we make you proud knowing that we celebrate your life by filling our days with laughter, love, a little bit of sass and a lot of spunk--just like you! You're forever in our hearts. Love, Court-Te-Ney, Scott, Squish and Blu

BEST, CHRISTIE (CHRIS) Our beautiful daughter, Chris, was born to her loving parents, Don and Alice Best, on February 20, 1963. She was a lifelong resident of Albuquerque where she graduated from Sandia High School in 1981. She was a very gifted athlete and became an accomplished track star where she won the title of the NM State Champion in the high jump category. Chris continued to be an athlete her entire life and was proficient in any sport she participated in. For the past five years has been training and competing in Agility with her beloved standard poodles, Eliza and Compostela. It takes years of hard work and dedication to become adept in this and Chris gave everything to be with her girls. On January 23, 2015, Chris competed in an agility competition with Eliza where she earned a qualifying score on her last run of the day. Chris was elated and celebrated by going to lunch and shopping with her mother and boyfriend. After returning home, Chris laid down to take a short nap after her exertions and excitement of the morning. To our greatest shock and sorrow, Chris never woke up and died peacefully in her sleep. She was the most beloved, fun loving, compassionate and positive person that anyone could ever have had the good fortune to have known. For 20 years, Chris was the dental assistant for Dr. Rex Wagner and continued in the dental industry working for Dr. John Bowers and Dr. Jennifer Oki. She excelled at her job and was extremely dedicated and devoted to her patients who also loved her dearly. Chris is survived by two siblings, Don Best and his wife, Pathira and Cindy Beall and her husband, Troy. She is also survived by her beloved two nephews, Clinton Beall, and Donavan Best, and one niece, Dr. Brittany Beall who blessed Chris with a great niece, Alice Luna Beall on November 23, 2014. She also leaves behind her soulmate and best friend, Augie Chapa, who will forever be a part of our family and is also devastated by the loss of his love. For our family, the light of our lives has been extinguished forever. Our only comfort is the certainty that Chris will forever be an Angel looking over her loved ones until we meet again. A Celebration of Life Service will be Thursday, January 29, 2015, 6:00 p.m. at FRENCH Lomas. Mass of the Resurrection will be Friday, January 30, 2015, 9:00 a.m. at The Shrine of St. Bernadette Catholic Church, 11401 Indian School Road NE. Entombment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Animal Humane Society, 615 Virginia St. SE, Alb. NM 87108 or the New Mexico Mission of Mercy, PO Box 16854, Albuquerque, NM 87191.

FLOREZ, VALERIE ROSE (GANDARA) July 19, 1964 - January 27, 2014 We thought of you with love today but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday and days before that too. We think of you in silence and often speak your name. We have your precious memories and your picture in a frame.Your memory is our keepsake with which we will never part. God has you in His keeping we have you in our heart. We would like to thank all who perhaps sent a lovely card, or sat quietly in a chair; perhaps you sent beautiful flowers, if so, we saw them there. Perhaps you sent or spoke kind words as any friend could say; perhaps you were not there at all just thought of us that day.
