Obituary

Surrounded by his family and friends, Lani Allen Mejia, born October 26th,1997, returned to our Lord on March 2nd, 2019, at the age of 21. He is survived by his Mother, Lorna (Zaiontz)Mejia; Father, Allen Mejia; Sister, L'Chelle ( Jason) West; Grandparents, Laurie and Claude Zaiontz; Grandfather, Albert (Linda) Mejia; Aunts, Sabra Stallings, Carla Zaiontz, Greta (Nathan) Stout, Kelly (Cameron) Benson, Kim (Vince) Smith; Uncles, Kevin (Edie) Zaiontz, Derek (Chere) Zaiontz; Cousins, Allison Wisnosky, Briana Larsson, Hayley Smith, Heather Carlton, Krista Pauley, Andrew Wisnosky, Christopher(Jessica)Zaiontz, Clint Murphy, Dean(Tracey) Gibson, Sean Smith, Vince(Elayna)Smith Jr., Zak(Linda)Zaiontz, Ashlyn Zaiontz, Aryanna Carlton, Bailey Pauley, Shannon Golden, Alex Pauley.

Lani graduated in 2016 from Churchill Highschool as the first "homebound special needs" student in San Antonio, Tx. In addition to attending Mass regularly, he was a member of the Divine Mercy Cenacle since 2005. Lani was often referred to as the Divine Mercy "Mascot."

On numerous occasions, Lani, accompanied by his Mother and Nurses, attended a variety of sporting events. He attended the Dallas Cowboys' Training Camp, Texas Rangers baseball games, and Spurs Basketball Games. Lani also visited the Alamo, Institute of Texan Cultures, The Tower of Americas observation deck, the Texas State Capitol, Morgan's Wonderland and was a member of The Witte Museum.

It is no mystery that many people were affected by Lani's presence in a positive and spiritual way. Lani will be remembered as a loving son, grandson, brother, nephew and cousin to his family, but also remembered as a cherished soul to the community. He touched many hearts, especially at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church and Holy Trinity Catholic Church.

Even in death, Lani continues to show his love for humanity. His corneas were donated to the San Antonio Eye Bank, so someone can have the gift of sight through Lani's eyes. This gives the meaning of his name Lani, "Eyes of Heaven," so much truth.

Lani is preceded in death by his Grandmother, Leilani Flick; Aunts, Moira Zaiontz and Lanie Sjolander; Uncle, Felton Stallings; and Cousins, Vladimier Zaiontz, Shawn Carlton and Robert Frantz. The family will receive friends from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., Monday, March 11, 2019, at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church.
