God blessed me with the most beautiful soul filled of his spirit, my mother. She instructed me in God’s path, taught me to fear him but mostly to grow a personal relationship with him. Mami, I am who you prayed for me to be. Am a woman of strong faith in God because you taught me with your own life. Thank you for introducing me to the unknown God to many, but so well known to you our Lord and Saviour. I thank God for your life and the legacy you left your children, grandchildren and the generations to come. The seed you planted is already giving fruit. We are already seeing your prayers answered and our lives blessed because your prayers were heard. In amazement of God’s love for you which has extended to us. We are not broken nor defeated. We are more than victorious! I love you Mami with all my heart and thank God for choosing us as your children. “Alla, mas alla mas alla del sol mamita hermosa nos volveremos a ver.”

Te Amo,
Tu princesa Elizabeth 💖

I saw you worship our God with such gratitude, preaching and evangelizing, giving people a ride, or sharing (literally everything) with the needy. I saw your heart, your compassion, your love and the sacrifice. You even saw potential in me, never judged and always encouraged me. Oh the sacrifice was big, but your gratitude for his healing hand, the miracles, the provision he supplied was too much to not keep going and you never stopped. Your reward is BIG. I know you're dancing with your friend Edelia and mama Eva! Thanks for being such a great example, thank you for giving me my best friend.

As I learned of your death I looked at our friendship of a lifetime and I give thanks to God for having the privilege to have knowing you since we were young ladies! We lost touch for over 50 years and when we got back in touch was like we have seen each other just the other day! I learned that we both Loved God ! that He is our Rock and I know because of Jesus Christ sacrifice for us all, we will see each other again! That will be no pain or sorrow as we will be walking the streets of Heaven with Our Savior ! I’ll see you later my friend 💜 Our deepest sympathy to all her family !

So many memories are left behind. She sacrificed herself for the better of others.
Saturday September 4, 2021 marks the last day of my mother here on earth after serving her whole life devoted to God, her husband, her children, her grandchildren, and many many lives along the way. Through the good times and hard times she made sure that her family had everything they needed. She adored everyone of her children along with everyone of her grandchildren. There’s not enough words to describe the love of one person towards me. She leaves an empty void they can only be filled with all the good memories and good deeds that I had with her. As she would tell me over and over “The quiero mucho mijo” I say back, te quiro mas mi princesa. Hay nos vemos mas tarde. I love you with all my heart as is breaking in pieces knowing that I wont have you here physically with me, but you will always be in my heart in the heart of our family and friends.😘😘
