In the last 4 years I have spent a lot of time with my Brother. In this time we have shared many thought and memories.! He was a very special and somewhat complicated person.
I thank God for the opportunity to talk to him about faith and Father Mike spent time with him.
Our mother said we needed to watch over him and as sisters we did and to day we gave him back to our Mom.
Thanks for the opportunity to learn more about him and love him more.
RIP. 🙏❤️

Estimada familia les acompaño en su dolor. En estos momentos de angustia busquen apoyo en Jehova. Salmos 34:18 dice que Él está con quienes tienen el corazón destrozado.
Nuestro Dios nos ha prometido despertar a nuestros seres queridos que hoy descansan en el sueño eterno (Hechos 24:15).
Nos ha prometido terminar con nuestro dolor y la muerte (Apocalipsis 21:4).
Tengan la esperanza de que así será. Mientras ese día llega, sigan buscando apoyo en Jehova.
Reciban mi abrazo fraterno desde Chile.
