I have no words!
I just found out! And I figured it on my own. I've been calling her since Monday, 11/16 to wish her Happy Birthday, but there was no answer.
After many attempts, I knew something was not right. So I went online and typed her name on Google and there it was! Her picture came up with her Obituary! It was shocking! couldn't believe what my eyes were seeing.
I met my dear friend Elvia at Banco Popular in 1991. We became really good friends. We kept in touch by letters and phone calls.

The last time I spoke to her was on July 31.
Like every year she called me to wish me Happy Birthday.
She always remembered my birthday, every year she would call me very early in the morning and sing a "Happy Birthday" song in spanish and my birthday card would always arrive on time.
She cared and prayed for me. She also knew my mother had been very sick for months and Elvia would always tell me to have Faith. My mom passed away on Sunday 11/15. It was something I needed to share with Elvia. I wanted, I needed to hear her voice, her kind words but that won't be possible anymore. I am hurt! I am going to miss her and our phone conversations. I will always cherish the memories that we created together.
To her son, daughter in law and grand daughters: I am very, very sorry for your loss! I know exactly what you are feeling right now. You will be in my prayers. May God grant you His peace and the strenght you need at this moment!

My deepest and most sincere condolences and may the soul of your mother rest in peace,

Rosario Horta🌹

I first met Elvia when we both started work on the same day at United Way in Greeley. She was a kind, thoughtful lady who lived her son, daughter-in-law and her three granddaughters above all else. She will be missed and loved forever by her family and those that knew her. Our prayers and condolences go out to her son and his family and to her family and friends in El Salvador.
