Mother’s side: Sherrie Ellis (James), Maria Shindder, Jonathon Adam Arellano. When remembering Alika, all will think of her beautiful bright eyes and her smile that reached from cheek to cheek. Not only was she beautiful on the outside, but also had a beautiful heart! Alika had this amazing ability to make everyone feel welcomed and loved. Alika was a creative and intelligent little girl. She loved school and her dream was to graduate from high school, attend college and become a police officer to help others in need. She was fashionable and always wanted to go shopping with her grandfather. She loved the holidays, especially Christmas, and wanted a gift for all of her family. Although we are a large family, she still insisted that her grandfather buy a gift for all his brothers and sisters. She loved music and dancing, but most of all playing with all of her cousins and friends. We will all miss her dearly, but know that we will see her beautiful smile again one day in heaven! Anyone who knew Traci knew that she was a fighter. Not only physically, but also in life. Although she had it hard at times, most of us remember her as a happy person. Traci loved to be around her family, you could find her most weekends with cousins and friends! She would also make sure to be at every family gathering whether it was a birthday party or reunion. She would be there! She was a big joker, and although her jokes were sometimes inappropriate, she loved making others laugh. Speaking of laughs, those who think back to their memories with Traci will never be able to forget her laugh, it was infectious! She loved her grandparents and parents dearly and did all she could to make them happy, spending as much time with them as possible. Traci loved the outdoors, going to the mountains, swimming, cooking, and music, but she most valued her time with her children, father, mother, and Amanda. In her last months, Traci started attending church on Sundays. Loving her family the way she did, church became a family event. Viewing will be held on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 from 12pm-7pm at Bohlender Funeral Chapel, 121 W. Olive St., Fort Collins. A Memorial Service will be held at 10am on Wednesday at Timberline Church, South Auditorium, 2908 S. Timberline Rd., Fort Collins. Interment will follow at Eaton Cemetery. A reception is planned after the interment from 2:30 until 5:00 pm at the Elks Lodge on 1424 E. Mulberry Street, Fort Collins. Since this will be the last gathering for Traci and Alika, their father/grandfather (Luis Salazar), encourages you to attend and celebrate their lives with the family. Both Traci and Alika will be happy that their father/grandfather adhered to their wishes.
