Ruben and Lety Gaytan

Our beloved sister in Christ was a woman that so loved the Lord, that her caring for others was a reflection of said love.
She would so welcomed my family, my children delightfully call them grandma and grandpa.
Always joyful, with a huge heart for missions, hers is a legacy of exemplary service to our Triune God.
We celebrate her life and memory knowing she is at home, her real one, with her beloved Saviour and Lord.
"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints" Psa. 116:15
