  • ‘In spirit ... watching me’

    Most of the West Las Vegas High School seniors were beaming with joy during their graduation ceremony this past Saturday, but the day was bittersweet for Stacy Romero.

    Her father, Roy Ortiz, died in a car accident on May 1, the day after her senior prom.

    “I was expecting him to be at my graduation,” an emotional Romero said. After all, he had told her he would be there.

    On Saturday morning, as she and her classmates were receiving their diplomas in the packed Gillie Lopez gymnasium, Romero’s thoughts wandered to her father.
