Crystal Sanchez and Rudy Andrew Sanchez II


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record


Crystal Sanchez and her sweet baby boy Rudy Andrew Sanchez II were called to heaven together on Friday September 28, 2018. Crystal was born to Rosendo Dimas and Dollie Renteria on January 5, 1996 in Roswell NM. Rudy Sanchez II is the only son born to Rudy Sanchez and Crystal Sanchez on April 02, 2017 in Roswell, NM.

Crystal was a beautiful angel who could illuminate any room with radiating joy and grace. Her natural tendency was to lift others up when they felt down, and this gift of spirit was a trait ingrained in her being. Rudy Andrew II was her handsome angel who had that same glow of joy and life. That loving spirit in his heart from the first moment he came into this world.

Crystal loved her family deeply and enjoyed spending time with them in a profound way. Her family relationships were important, and she took great care and time to nurture these relationships. She could be charismatic and bubbly when dancing or listening to music. She loved to go to car shows, and the way someone can appreciate fine art, she could truly appreciate a tricked-out car.

Baby Rudy Andrew II was an explosion of energy, with magnetism that attracted smiles from everyone around him, he gave his heart to whoever would receive it. He loved to play with his Dad, Tio’s and Tia’s, to be doted on by his Grandpa’s and Grandma’s, and to play as hard as he could outside with Grandpa Ross. Going out to the ranch was an opportunity to run free and play uninhibited. He loved his sister and looked up to her with eyes of wonder and amazement.

The measurement of life goes beyond the calendar. The gift of time that this world was given with Crystal and Rudy Andrew II was too short, but the use of that time is immeasurable. They gave their family the best of themselves and in return a world that is better off for having known them. Crystal and Rudy Andrew II legacy will be apparent for generations, and as Crystals daughter grows and matures, the love her mother had for her will foster courage and strength; building a permanent foundation in her heart. The love from her brother who adored his big sister will shape her future family and that spirit of joy will be given to her family just as it was given to her.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Us

When tomorrow starts without us and we
Are not there to see if the sun should rise
And find your eyes all filled with tears for us.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you
Did today. While thinking of the many things
We didn’t get to say. I know how much you
Loved us and as much as we loved you and each
Time that you think of us I know you’ll miss us
But when tomorrow starts without us
please try to understand that an Angel came
and called our names
and took us by
the hands and said
our place was ready
in Heaven far above
and that we would
have to leave behind all those we loved.
But when we walked through Heaven’s gates
we felt so much at home.
When God looked down on us and smiled at us from
his great golden throne he said, “this is eternity and all I have promised you today your life on earth is passed
but here life starts anew.” So when tomorrow starts
without us don’t think we are far apart for every time
you think of us we are right here in your hearts.
