I just discovered that Vanessa passed away this very moment Googling her name to get her office number for a refferal. I had lost her card. I am a police Detective and have known Vanessa for many years at the Rolling Meadows court house. She would often represent clients that I had arrested. She and I became good aquaintances and would have lengthy discussions at the court house. She wanted me to call her for a job when I retired. She and I would have conversations in Spanish and developed a mutual respect for each other professionaly and personally. I would often reffer clients to her that I came by in the latino community that I or my department were not involved in prosecuting. She was a very sweet and kind person and I admired her immensely. I will miss her very much.

I was not aware of this Guest book until Jorge mentioned it on FB. I always admired and loved my cousin Vanessa. Sadly had not returned to Chicago since 1964 and was unable to see her on a short trip in 2010 but memories of her in her Flamenco dress and so many other wonderful moments when we were children in Colombia will live on forever my heart.

I'm so sorry for your loss! Even though I never met her, I do know that she had 2 fantastic sons that she raised well, with integrity. My family and I send our condolences and love to you and yours.

What can you say about afriend of 35 years, that always had a nice word of support and who always gave my kids a sweet word of advice when they got in trouble and she was their counselor at a court hearing?
When every time she saw me she would ask "como estan los pelaos?"
A beautifull soul that was always trying to help someone, that is how I will always remember My friend Vanessa.
May God have her by His side

This world will not be the same without you Vanessa. You were one of the first friends I made when I was running from courthouse to courthouse in 2005. Your constant smile and kisses hello and goodbye were always accompanied by a joke and a laugh. I wish I had known of recent events so that I could have seen you before you left. But I know you are still here watching out over Christine and your family and I know that when you are ready, you are going to light up the UNIVERSE with that smile and special spirit. Love always my friend.
