Sending so much love and prayers to Elizabeth’s family during this difficult time. I met Santos & Elizabeth at least 20 years ago when I started serving as a Eucharistic Minister at Noon Mass at St. Elizabeth. They both showed me the ropes on how to set up for Mass, where to stand and how to properly clean up. Little did I know that this was the start of a beautiful friendship. I was immediately drawn to them because they reminded me of my own grandparents and Santos and my grandfather shared the same name. For the next 20+ years, we would sit behind them at Mass and I always admired how he looked after her and she after him. She’d turn his Church Missile to the right page for him and they’d always hold each other’s hands. We eventually both switched over to 10 am Mass and it was the highlight of my Sunday to get a big hug from them both. They would call me, my mom and my sister, “Mijita” and they treated us like family. We looked forward to seeing them at Midnight Mass, Easter, their April 1st Anniversary (which they knew was also my birthday) and all of the other big celebrations. Over the years, they met our family and we met theirs. They were there for us when my mother passed away and they were constantly in our prayers through the years. I’m grateful to have had their positive influence and their love in my life. I will miss their big hugs, walking with them and holding their hands and most especially how they would tell me that they love me. As sad as I am with Elizabeth’s passing, I am overjoyed to know that she has been reunited with her true love, Santos. I’m thankful that she introduced us to her beautiful family and look forward to building our family’s friendship for many years to come. Here's a picture I took in 2012 at the St. Elizabeth Jamaica. Love you, guys!

My condolences to all the family. Elizabeth was a beautiful lady who always had a beautiful smile on her face. I met her and Santos when I started taking them communion to their home. May the Repose of Her Soul Rest In Peace. 🙏🏼

My beautiful memories of her will be forever close in my heart. She was the most kind and gentle Tia God could have ever blessed me with.
Though we were separated by miles and time my thoughts of her are forever close in my heart.
Her loving spirit left an eternal gift from God on my soul.
