I would like to extend prayers and lots of love to all of your family.
Our family lost my dad on the same day you lost your loved one. I pray that our
Lord Jesus has restored to them the promise of his eternal life. He has all the power
over death. And we will see them again!

We would like to thank all of our families and friends for the Love and support you have shown us during this difficult time at the loss of our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, and cousin.
This past year was a tough year for my mom, but she is no longer suffering. She has reunited with her husband, Amadeo, after 5 and 1/2 years of being apart. We will miss my mom tremendously. Once again, thanks for all the love and support you have shown us.
