COVID-19 has impacted our family deeply. Laura will be reunited with our loving father, her husband Luis O. Aragon, and her two brothers Ernie Martinez and Tavas Martinez, as well as her Father Ernesto Martinez, and her Mother Inez J. Martinez. She left behind four daughters, Elsa Aragon, Maricruz Aragon, Rebeca Aragon, and Veronica Aragon. Four grandkids Alannah Aiono, Sergio Bustos, Inez Aiono, and Octavio Aiono. Our mother was admitted to the hospital on November 9th, 2020, due to COVID-19. She was fighting until December 17th, 2020. Our mother decided she no longer could continue and was exhausted from fighting so hard. She passed away at 1:33 pm. All four of us daughters were able to be in the room of her passing to fulfill her wish of not passing alone. Our mother was truly a strong, amazing, funny woman! And a fighter! Most of the doctors and nurses said it themselves, and among one of those nurses told her, “You are my hero, you are the longest in this hospital to keep trying and not give up and I will always remember you.” We couldn’t agree more with him, because she truly is our hero and we are going to miss her tremendously. We would say, as daughters, “What would we do without you mom?” but never did we imagine it would be this soon. We ask for you to continue to pray for our family and all of those who continue to battle COVID-19. Therefore, and foremost we ask you to join us to help celebrate her life and continue to spread her legacy. With her contagious laugh and the way she viewed life. She will be deeply missed more than words can express. The way she imprinted our lives and many others was an extraordinary way. She was besides full of life, but one of a kind. Sincerely her daughters, Elsa, Maricruz, Rebeca, Veronica Aragon. Thank you!
