Today is such a sad day. She was an idol to thousands, including myself. Thanks to her I began to believe in myself as a Mexican American woman who can succeed. She had the balls, no the OVARIES, to do and say things that people told her she couldn't do. She was a great, loving person and a wonderful mother. RIP Jenni Rivera and those who were with her in the plane. La Diva de la Banda siempre vivira en nuestros corazones. 3
