Lalo Angulo Passed Away

I just received sad news that Lalo Angulo has passed away. Lalo of 31 years old and his newborn baby daughter did not survive a car accident. His wife Snutetkwe of 22 years old and other baby Malinalli 4 years old, are in critical condition. Lalo was a 2004 Peace & Dignity Journeys runner and made the commitment from Alaska to Panama.Some of you knew him from his visit to Fresno in 2004.He was from Nayarit, Mexico, of the Tepehuano people and married Snutetkwe of Secwepemc and Ktunaxa First Nations in Canada. They had thier first child soon after 2004 run. Lalo and his entire family joined us in Canada and California to run for 2008. I have attached photos of Lalo for anyone who is curious of who he was and who he always will be. Life is not promised to us and we must take advantage of every moment that we have with those that we love on this journey. ...please say a prayer for Lalo as he and his daughter pass to the spirit world! i will keep you all posted on his wife and baby Malinalli. Peace Hector Armando Cerda

I'm one of the Peace and Dignity Journeys organizator on Mexico's state of Jalisco and feel very sorrow of knowing about Lalo's accident. I don't remember if he ever came to Guadalajara but here we'll be praying for him and his daughter. How can we have one of his photos so we can figure out him?
