It was Becky’s greatest passion to follow the Lord and walk-in obedience to her call. She loved serving the people God had given them to minister to, and she was greatly loved by those she served. Becky served in many capacities from preacher, teacher, worship leader, pianist, mentor and more.
Becky went home to be with her Lord on December 24, 2020. Becky was proceeded in death by her late husband, Ralph A.

Sorry to have missed your last years with us, my dear cousin! Lourdes and I will always remember you for your love, kindness, advice and opening your house for us to stay when we moved to Florida, some 40 years ago. Ralph will also be on our minds for ever! Although I don’t have memories of it, I loved the stories you told me about your mom, Tia Luisa, and you taking care of me as a newborn until the age of three, while my mom was sick and recuperating in the hospital. As you would tell me, I was your little brother.
Thanks for caring and visiting Lourdes during her first three brain surgeries. It meant a lot to us!
My most sincere condolences and love to my cousins Ralph and Mary Ann. May God comfort your hearts and give you peace!

I accepted Jesus as a child at Open Bible and Hermana Becky was a blessing to me throughout my life.
Alex and I were so blessed to visit her about 3-4 years ago with our children and she gave our eldest child such a beautiful blessing and prophesied over her future ministry.
I feel so honored and privileged to have had such a strong woman of faith as our “Pastora”. My mom always said that she was her spiritual mother and I feel the same. Pastor and Hermana Becky’s ministry helped change the course of my family and we will always remember them with love, admiration and gratitude.
There are many “videos” I can’t wait to see in heaven and one of them will be of her meeting her Savior face to face and the reunion with Pastor and Damaris.

She was like a mother to me. I will miss her. RIP and enjoy your new life with Christ our Lord. Will see you again down the line.

Today I wish to celebrate Becky's ministry as a Sunday School teacher to the teenagers of the 1970s of which I'm one. Many times I can say I was there by obligation. But I never left Sunday School without a truth that would challenge me to seek an encounter with the Lord. Today I serve and experience all the things she shared many Sunday mornings.
This season has made me aware that this is our time to speak His word to others as she did to me as a teenager. We can encourage, lift up and with God's word plant a seed in others that will grow and bear fruit. I thank the Lord for sending her into our lives and for her willingness to obey his command to reach others. God bless the Cajigas family and give them His peace during this time.
Love you all,
Orlando Flores & Flores Family
