To Those I Love

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do.

You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love.
You can only guess how much you gave me in happiness.
But now it’s time I traveled on alone.

So grieve awhile for me,
If grieve you must then let your grief
be comforted by trust.

It’s only for a while that we must part
so bless the memories within your heart.

I won’t be far away,
For life goes on,
so if you need me,
Call and I will come.

Though you can’t see or touch me,
I’ll be near and if you listen with your heart, you’ll hear all my
love around you soft and clear.

And then, when you must come this way alone, I’ll greet you with
a smile, and say
“Welcome Home”

Sister Alessandra Rae Vigil

  • Kappa Alpha Chapter – Colorado State University

  • Born: August 28, 1985 in Salida CO
  • Date Initiated into Sigma Lambda Gamma: April 24, 2004
  • Passed away: May 13, 2004

Alessandra — Ally to us — came into our lives as a shy individual with much to offer Theta class and the sisters of Kappa Alpha chapter. Before we knew it she had blossomed into a beautiful Latina woman with confidence, who was not afraid to speak her mind or work hard. Ally always liked to be out doing things. She hated sitting around. She was so strong. If there was something she wanted, she set her mind and went for it.

Quite a character she was. For such a little person, she could outshine many. Kayaking, marathons, concert band, jazz band, marching band … the list goes on. Humor was also within her gentle nature. For instance, she had a stuffed cow named PIG, and a frog named Moco. Also, one thing that stood out about Ally was her passion for the Colorado Avalanche. She never missed a game or a chance to scream out for her team, no matter what the score was at the end of the game.

Her bright smile brought such joy into our lives as an associate member and continued into her short time as a sister. To her, life was just right …

We will miss her greatly, but we are all so fortunate to have had her in our lives for that brief time. Each one of us has our own memories of Ally within our hearts that are just too precious to write down on paper.

WE LOVE YOU ALLY, HERMANAS POR VIDA, SISTERS FOR LIFE!

Kimberly Ann Rannings, also known as “Kimmy” as we affectionately nicknamed her, became a sister of Sigma Lambda Gamma's Mu Chapter on May 17, 1997. Our Kimmy was a loyal friend and sister who was charismatic, outgoing and inquisitive. She was also very smart, out spoken, determined and dedicated to all she set her heart to -- a true gentle soul who always strived to excel. Her life-long dream was to become a nurse and she achieved it. She always wanted to help others and this brought out the best in her. Her line name, "Meraviglia" means "marvel, splendor, and magnificence" -- and that’s exactly what she represented. She left a legacy of many fond memories of her spur-of-the-moment funny jokes and sarcastic remarks....that was her ITALIAN side :0) However, don’t be fooled as she was also quite stubborn! Who can forget her all-time favorite catch phrase “I’m just sayin”! Meraviglia was humble and rejected all notion of her condition as an impediment. She set goals and sought after them full force! Our sister found humor in life, held much pride in her person and worked hard to foster relationships. Kimmy left her foot prints in the hearts of all that met her. She will forever be missed and her memory will live on in Mu chapter forever. Hermanas Por Vida, Sisters for Life.
