My deepest sympathy to the Contreras family. It was a great honor to have know Celia Contreras. She lived her life with great purpose and left a great legacy. She taught her family love, strength, wisdom and God's Grace. She will be greatly missed.

We pray for you and your family during this bittersweet time of loss. Feeling your indescribable sorrow which goes beyond words, we lift you up to our loving Father. May His embrace bring you the peace that passes all understanding as you travel the road of grief… knowing that on the other side you will find rejoicing. As He brushes aside your tears, may your focus be on the joy and great delight your dear mom is experiencing as she walks on streets of gold, side by side with Jesus.
In His great name, Amen.
