KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the loved ones of Lisa Lopez-Galvan prepare to lay her to rest, the beloved mother and DJ is being honored in a way that can been seen from miles across Kansas City.

On Friday night, Union Station used the colors from the Mexican flag to light the building in honor of Lopez-Galvan's heritage.

"Tonight, as weekend services for Lisa Lopez-Galvan begin, Union Station’s historic south façade features accent colors from the flag of Mexico," Union Station said in the post. "This is both a reflection of Lisa’s proud Hispanic heritage as well as an expression of sympathy to her entire extended family."

Lopez-Galvan's life was tragically taken in the mass shooting that happened as the Chiefs rally was ending last week.
