Obituary for Erica Renee Salazar

Erica Renee Salazar was born in Fresno, CA on September 30, 1969. She
spent most of her childhood growing up on a ranch in Mexico before
moving to Laredo, TX. Even at a young age, Erica was always able to
make everyone around her smile no matter how difficult things may have
been. With her infectious personality and loving heart, she continued
to make the lives of everyone she met seem so much more special.

Erica was somewhat of a free-spirit who always followed her heart, and
would never allow anything to keep her from reaching her goals. She
moved to San Antonio and worked tirelesly as a make-up artist, beauty
queen, model, and entertainer. Despite the long hours working to
become internationally renowned in that industry, Erica always made
time to help others as a mentor or even just as a friend. It never
m attered if she knew you or not, Erica was always there for you.

Erica may not have been with us for a very long time, but she saw all
of her dreams come to fruition. Erica worked hard and became the best
in everything she did, she found her one true love, and she had the
unconditional love and support from her entire family along the way.
