My original name at birth was Celena Louise Aurelia Archuleta. My mom Becky and dad Marshall divorced in 1993. I was then adopted by my step-dad and my name changed to Celena Louise Andersen. I am now married to Chris Malchow. Sarah was my Aunt that I never had the privilege of meeting. My cousin Vickie Archuleta says she was an amazing person. If I could ask her of one thing; it'd be "please tell my dad Marchall hi for me when you get to heaven"......... RIP Aunt Sarah

Sarah..though I met her only briefly and she was married by that time; we visited for a very short while one day, I loved her from that moment and saw her as my big sister. We were at Tio's n Tia's house, sitting on the couch, playing checkers and talking. We shared life stories; one in particular continues to haunt me. For lack of better communication skills, our converstion remained open, no closure, like unfinished business. What I really don't remember now is when she got to the house..I think maybe her husband dropped her off then came picked her up, which is when I met him, because suddenly he was there and said it was time to go and they left. I wrote her once when we returned to Colorado, but I never heard back from her and we lost touch. In later years I was told that she and Jack had separated, then later still, that he had passed away. I did not know until recently that they had reconciled. The next time I saw Sarah was for Tio's funeral. I was anxious and happy to see her again inspite of the occassion. But I must admit I was somewhat taken aback at the difference in her. Our conversation then was one sentence when I asked her how she was. She said "I have good days and I have bad days." After that I never saw her again, but always missed and worried about her; always with the hope of being able to go there and see her. But God had other plans for both of us. She could not wait for me and I could not get there.What I do know right now, although I am having a very hard time accepting that she is gone, is that she is now at peace and happy, in a much better place; in the brightest, most cheerful light in God's heaven. And our ancestors and the rest of the family already there all rejoiced and welcomed her home. I will always carry her in my heart. And one day we will finish that checkers game.I love you Sarah! Rest in peace and God bless the whom I offer my condolences. You all know where to reach me..Love,Teddie.
