Angelica was an amazing bright light to this world.  Always so sweet, nurturing and caring to those she loved most.  Her vibrant energy was so contagious, her radiant smile was stunning, her laugh always came from deep in her belly and will continue to ring through the memories.  She had so many hopes and dreams she wanted to accomplish and will never get to finish because she was taken far too soon.  Her light will live on through her beautiful daughter, Alicia Camila Casares, a spitting image of her radiance inside and out, her two beautiful and strong sisters Natalie and Naomi Caseras, her loving mother Patricia Casares, and beloved grandparents Enrique and Maria Zuniga and countless aunts, uncles, and cousins.  She has joined her sister Alicia in the sky and they’ve become two of the most amazing guardian angels any family could ask for.
