  9. To Santi’s family and Savannah,

    I was blessed to get to teach Santi and Savannah during my time at Canyon High School. Santi always found a way to make our class laugh and never take anything too serious. Although I only had him for a year, he was a blessing to teach. Santi had a lot more of his life to live and will be greatly missed.

    To Savannah, I can’t imagine what you are going through. You are a strong girl who now has the best guardian angel looking after her. Keep strong in your faith and live the life Santi would have hoped to live with you.
