Dr. Lameda was truly a blessing to our family. She was not only a beloved physician, but an angel who helped "heal" my baby, Will, who is almost 3 years old now. We will never forget her kindness and loving support through very very difficult times. WE all love you and will you greatly miss you- Zachary, Megan, and Will.

Few doctors can compare to the genuine love and compassion Dr. Lameda had for her patients. I think she knew each and every one of them by name! She has been a part of our family for 14 years, saved the life of my now 9 year old, and stood by my side with a scary diagnosis of my 4 year old. My family will miss her beyond words. My very deepest sympathy to her family, friends, and staff that I know are suffering her loss. What a magnificent angel the heavens received! We will miss you Dr. Lameda! The Kilgores

There was never a time when she was not there for her "families" as she would fondly say when my children went to her. She was a lifesaver and most compassionate person when we became one of her first patients when she came to Monroe. She loved and cared for my son as he went through many tough illnesses and was always there. She will be missed more than any of us can realize. Heaven got one of Gods best angels this weekend.

For over 12yrs my 3 girls enjoyed visiting DR. Lameda she took the fear out of going for shots and check ups with her wonderful smile and sence of humor. Dr. Lameda would tell them everytime she seen them they were little angels and she will always be a part of Isabelle, Jasmine, and Georgia Christians life and we will never forget what a big part she filled for them

Dr Lameda was such a phenomenal person. The world was so lucky to have her. She knew all of my kids by name, even the twins. I can't even explain how heartbroken we are to hear about her passing. Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

Dr. Lameda was an amazing woman. She always made time to talk to each of my children even if they weren't the ones being seen that day. Her smile was a comfort to us all and will be dearly missed. The world has lost a special person but Heaven has regained one of it's Angels on Earth. God bless you and your family. We love you! The Wilson Family

Since the day I placed all 3 of my boys in her arms when they where 24 hours old, I knew they where in good hands. She went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to her patients. The boys and I came to love Dr. Lameda very dearly. She was apart of our family for many years. She will be missed dearly and we know she is watching over us all...prayers of comfort for her family and staff. Anyone that had the chance to know her will miss her smile for years to come...God Bless Melinda, Caleb, Joseph and Issac Thank you for everything

I too am heartbroken. Dr. Lameda had a special place in her heart for special needs kids like my daughter and she never made you feel like your questions or concerns were ridiculous or time consuming. I loved her and will always remember how she loved my whole family. Prayers for her family.
