Forever in Our Hearts: 19th Anniversary of Selena Quintanilla
A Super Star Remembered
Can you believe it’s been 19 years since the world’s greatest Tejano singer passed away? Viewing her memory from the eyes of the husband Selena Quintanilla left behind, softens our hearts to our loss.
According to TVyNovelas, Chris Perez is the one whom we as fans can get the true story from, or at least their love story.
The day she passed, Selena met with the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar at a hotel to retrieve financial records. That’s when Yolanda fatally shot the Tejano superstar.
Chris wrote a memoir titled “To Selena, With Love” almost two decades after the singer’s passing. He details their love and romance up to the day she was buried.
He said that when he was alone with his wife in her coffin, he wanted to go with her. He put his ring on his wife’s ring finger, knelt in prayer and said goodbye.
Gone, but by no means, forgotten.
