Here is a link to the DeVargas Funeral Home obituary for 3-year-old Leland Valdez, killed last week after police say he was beaten to death by either mother and her boyfriend.

From that obituary:

Public visitation will begin on Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Pojoaque with a wake to be held at 7:00 p.m. A second wake will be held on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. also at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Pojoaque. Mass of Christian burial to be celebrated on Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. at the Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church in Pojoaque. Burial to follow at the Nambe Catholic Cemetery.

Also, for those who did not see Saturday’s story on Gov. Susana Martinez getting involved in the case, here is a link to that story and two others from last week:

    I can’t believe that the Valdez’s would not include the Van Holtz’s in the Obituary. Don’t you think that the grandparents, aunts and uncle cared about this little boy just as much as they did. I would be so ashamed.

    I agree with Amanda. There has been nothing written on the Van Holtz’s part in this whole case. It was the fathers side of the family that was caring for the children before they wrongfully got handed over to the worthless mother, didn’t hear of her family stepping in. Did you? What matters is this beautiful Angel is no longer on this earth due to these monsters. I wouldn’t have added them either!!!!

    IF THE VAN HOLTZ FAMILY FELT LIKE THEY NEEDED SOME SORT OF ACKNOWLEDGEMENT THEN THEY COULD HAVE PAID FOR A SEPERATE OBITUARY READING LISTING THEIR FAMILY. WELL PUT AMANDA AND SAMANTHA.

  4. FUCK TABITHA AND STEVEN I hope they die

    For all the haters whom think that the van holts family deserves any part of any thing to do with Leland is sadly mistaken. How would i know well im Lelands grandma. His fathers mom. The van holts family knew tabetha was with an abusive person act did nothing t protect my grand children. Now that Leland is good they want to act like he menu everything to them. Well its a LITTLE to late dont you think. Leland told us he was being hurt so why wouldnt he have told them? Abduse her family was in denile thats why. My poor baby
