We never knew Chelo, except through her nieces, her artwork, and her past. She was artistic and lived it. She was spiritual and believed in spirituality and past lives. Chelo was a visual artist and poet. I bet she made music. She worked as the candy lady at the Kress department store in Del Rio. We met her old Kress manager one time when he visited our gallery. He said he would always have to get on Chelo for the amount of time she spent on candy displays. Chelo obviously got lost her in world in which she created. It involved the present, past, her dreams, and history. It was a beautiful place.
