In my life, I had never met someone so much like me. I loved spending time with Lilly. We shared a lot more than the same taste in music. Lilly loved poetry, rainy days, playing with children, art, walks on the beach, indy movies, playing with animals and being spontaneous. She was a peaceful person who was never afraid to stand up for others. I remember her as a free spirit, very easy-going, kind-hearted, and fun to be around. She was compassionate, humble and the furthest thing from materialistic and superficial. As a kid, Lilly enjoyed acting. She was a regular on a popular Spanish TV show, Sabado Gigante. She was very artistic and always kept a journal. Lilly loved animals, above all dogs were her absolute favorite. It wasn’t unusual to see her offering food/water and affection to homeless animals or seeing her give away her last dollar to a homeless person on the street. She practiced Buddhism and meditation, even living at a temple at one point. Her Buddhist name is Karma Drolkar. She will always remain that free spirit little pixie in my mind.
Lilly shared many stories with me about her life and her adolescence. She told me about her childhood, and the times she ran away as a teenager. She would leave her mother’s house to stay with her best friend. But always kept in touch. She suffered from depression and emotional problems at a young age, her best friends meant the world to her. Until she met the love of her life, her son’s father.
Here are my pictures of Lilly. Such a beautiful girl, inside and out. A kind, gentle person, someone I will never forget. Please say a prayer for her tonight. Pray for justice to be served and all missing loved ones to be found.
It’s so hard to believe she’s gone and it’s been such a long time since anyone has seen her. I worry so much about her, she’s constantly on my mind. If only law enforcement could feel a tinge of that concern, they would do everything in their power to find her. And justice would be served for Lilly Aramburo, my sweet pixie friend.
