#live4bethany On May 11, 2019, I lost my life at the age of 23-years-old because two young men decided to engage in an illegal street racing contest. My daughter Layla was only 6-years-old at the time, she was my pride and joy. She was my best friends and we did everything together, my little girl will ever understand why I am never coming home.
I was a mother, sister, daughter, niece and good friend to many. I was adventurous, enjoyed trying new things, visiting new places and traveling. I enjoyed museums, hiking, taking long drives or listening to music all day long. I loved dying my hair unique colors which gave me the nick name “Unicorn”. I never cared about what others thought, I did what made me happy! My life was my journey and I lived it my way. I now fly with my own wings and guard my family night and day.
My Aunt “Lori Argumedo” is the Outreach & Community Relations Director for Street Racing Kills, she joined the organization after my passing. When she laid me to rest she promised me she would keep my memory alive and that my death would not be in vain. She is passionate about preventing and creating awareness regarding the dangers of illegal street racing and traffic safety among the youth.
