There are three kinds of people in your life that make you grow; those who challenge you, mentor you, and those who nurture. Finding one is hard but finding someone who can do three is near impossible. Luckily I did have a person like that in my life who we called mom. Ever since we were small she emphasized manners, respect, and how to still be good even to those who were unfair. Living in a world that I treated like a playground as a child. I knew the world was mine, if I worked hard enough to earn it’s gifts and the blessings from God. But mom made sure that we knew that while we were her world, the world didn’t revolve around us. We learned how to adapt to our world where we were less fortunate but made up for it in dreams, imagination, and improvisation.
When I was a kids, I loved cars. I would watch them on TV and play with them around the house. While mom was working at school she would take breaks between recess and lunch. Then we would walk down the street to the overpass on the 101. Its the place she would take take me to watch the “racing cars”. Walking home from school, she would pick up old toys that were thrown away and clean them up for me so I had something to play with. I have to admit that while I had many memorable moment’s because of mom, I didn’t return the things she did for me in kind. There were nights that I didn’t do my homework, endless hours of staring into the wall instead of learning my multiplication tables, and way too much TV at times I should have been studying. Still, she took it all in stride and balanced discipline with compassion and never used the excuse of me being in trouble as a reason not to spend time with me.
I think the most memorable thing for me was when she decided to change jobs from being a lunch lady to being a Certified Nursing Assistant. When I was allowed to do more things, she took the opportunity to go back to school and get her certification. Setting such an awesome example for me that no matter where you are in life. As long as you can draw breath, you can still learn. Growing up was tough, but it was worth it, because my mom made hardships bearable and the celebrations of our milestones that much more meaningful.

Buenaluz Santos Carreon is survived by her children Marilu Carreon, Yvette Carreon and Richard Carreon. She went on to marry Eduardo Carreon who she has spent most of her life with. She had many talents like singing, dancing, and hosting events where she wore the most amazing gowns she herself had designed.

She is also known to have such compassion for the homeless in the neighborhood and would yearly provide food to feed the needy. We choose to remember her having the strength of will, her passion, and even though she never said it...her children knew she loved them in her own way. Buenaluz was a fierce woman and we hope she now joined our loving father in heaven Amen.
