I only met Charisma a couple of times, but she made a lasting impression on me. She had a beautiful soul and a shy smile that....every time she shared it with the world showed the light she had inside her. The brutality and harshness that is life today is simply too much to bear when you have a sensitive spirit like she did. She was a butterfly who briefly lit the world with her beauty and grace and then moved on to the next. The lives of those who truly loved her will never never be the same....

Charisma’s brother worked with my granddaughter, Micaela Lopez-Moore at Gringos Restaurant. She met both Micaela and my daughter Rebecca Lopez (Micaela’s mother) on several occasions. She greeted them always with a beautiful and radiant smiling face and generous hugs! She will be sorely missed.

Father God, we humbly ask that Your peace, comfort, and hope will encompass her parents and siblings at this very painful and trying time. We thank You for the saving grace that is offered to all who reach out to You.

Our love to the Garza family now and always.

I know that words cannot describe the pain Charisma's family and friends are feeling. I remember Charisma from when she attended Rizzuto while I was teaching on the campus. I did not know Charisma very well, but I remember her smile as she would walk down the hall. As a counselor in the district now, I had the honor of speaking to several students at the high school the other day and being able to hear about the many memories they made with Charisma. I learned that she was well-loved and a great friend to anyone who met her. My daughter, Madison, was in Varsity Chorale with Charisma and talked to me about what a sweet girl Charisma was and how everyone has been deeply saddened by her passing. I wish I had words to comfort you. I will keep the entire family and her friends in my prayers.

Our freckled girl!! She loved music and loved poetry books. Her love for animals was one in a million. She was moody like every other teenager and loved to sleep. So many memories from swimming to eating to her getting mad at me or shaking her head for the stupid stuff I used to do to make her laugh. I can still hear her laugh. Charisma you have no idea how many people you’ve touched and wish you were still here laughing at all the stupid things we used to do or talk about!! I miss you, everyone misses you!! We will never forget you and forever be grateful we met you and shared our life with you!!!

Charisma had such a contagious smile and a kind heart. She and my daughter Alexia were the best of friends. They really had a great time together, laughing, watching movies, talking and texting on the phone. They both were on the LPHS Color Guard; which Alexia says will not be the same without her. She had a huge impact on Alexia and on us.
She is loved and so very missed. Gone too soon but never forgotten.

I’m one of charisma’s tías of the many that she has. It breaks my heart that she isn’t with us what is even sadder I never got the opportunity to be a auntie to her, I never got the opportunity to meet her in person but just because of that doesn’t mean I’m not hurting deep down inside she was my family, my first born baby girl niece and I loved her dearly. She has left us heartbroken but will always be with us in our hearts and her memory will live on always remembering her the way she was beautiful outgoing outspoken compassionate and with a beautiful enormous heart. But most important her smile 😊 she was a beautiful soul that was barely starting to live life she left us way too soon no one really knew what my baby was going through but I do she lost her battle to depression something that I struggle with every day of my life. That’s why it’s important not to ignore the signs of depression. Depression is a mental illness that isn’t a joke get informed read what it’s about because it’s a serious illness that takes lives. No words can describe how her parents are feeling they are devastated by the loss of their baby girl my strong beautiful baby niece . Losing a child to death is something no parents should go through but jehova gives us the strength we need to keep holding on it goes away beyond anything and everything. I know jehova has her in his book of life I know that I will get to see her again and when I do I’m going to run to her and hug her hold her and see her beautiful smile I’ll see you soon baby girl tía has loved you from the day you where born and I always but not being close to you do to the circumstances makes my heart ache so much more. No words can describe the biggest loss ever.

Very sad to hear this sweet girl will no longer walk with us. She was one of my first students at Rizzuto and she was a sweetheart. Praying for comfort for your family. She will be missed. Blessings to all of you now and always.

I remember the first time I ever met her, she ran up to me and hugged me before even knowing who I was. She asked me who I was and how I knew her brother, and I told her me and him went to the same elementary school together. I was mainly involved because my boyfriend lived with them and I became part of their friend group. He was a part of a family for a very long time. I would always look forward to seeing her when I got the chance, she was always radiating such positive energy. There was not a bad bone in her body, I saw a brighter light in her than I did in most people. Her smile and laugh alone would draw you into her. I know I’m just a family friend, but this is absolutely breaking my own heart, not to mention feeling everyone else’s confusion and pain. I wish I knew that when she came to me and Richard‘s apartment two months ago that it would be the last time. It would have been different. She was always such pleasant company to be around. I have so much more to say, but I will leave it here. I think she knows what is running through my mind. I love you, Charisma. Maybe I’ll see you again someday. (I blurred out the other faces in the photo to just focus on her, no mean to disrespect anyone in the photo)
