Here's the outcome of the above effort:

From Irma Lara: A letter received from Mr. Stephen J. Finfer ( attorney for the Quintanilla family). I'm quoting from a copy of the letter as follows: "The Quintanilla family and the Estate wish to carefully preserve the memory of Selena. Despite Selena's commercial celebrity, the Quintanilla's are a private and humble family. They feel that the Stamp would be too public and formal of a means of remembering Selena."

They have declined to approve Mrs. Lara's request to solicite the Stamp, and or utilize the name and likeness. After all the hard work she put in, and all the signatures, (over 5600).
