“DO NOT LET YOUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED. YOU BELIEVE IN GOD; BELIEVE ALSO IN ME. MY FATHER’S HOUSE HAS MANY ROOMS. I AM GOING THERE TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU. AND IF I GO AND PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU, I WILL COME BACK AND TAKE YOU TO BE WITH ME THAT YOU ALSO MAY BE WHERE I AM. YOU KNOW THE WAY TO THE PLACE WHERE I AM GOING.” JOHN 14:1-5 Our beloved mother went to join Our Savior in heaven on Monday, June 11, 2018 in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, surrounded by all her family. While we may have deep sadness and a broken heart, we know she is where she needed to be. To those of you who knew her, you can agree that she was a beautiful person who had a generous heart and a deep love for her family and life in general. She was so devoted to her husband and all her family, and she was always a ray of sunshine wherever she went. Her deep-rooted faith was the mark of her life’s journey. This is what made her our stronghold; OUR rock and steady foundation. Her values and outlook on life is what made us all the individuals we are today. We THANK GOD for placing her in our lives. We know she is now happy in the house of the Lord, and that makes us rejoice and be content as well. TODAY, we CELEBRATE HER LIFE here on this earth. It is these precious memories that will long live in our hearts.
