To all the family of Esther Ampelas,
I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mother--I have very fond memories of all the family and both of your parents from St. Stephens Church--Carol,you and all your family have truely honored both of your parents by your loving families and children. The last time I saw your mom and Susan was at St. Stephens anniversery celebration. She was so excited to tell me about all her grandchildren and great granchildren. Your mom was always so "upbeat" and enjoyed everyone so much--I'm sure you'll will all have the greatest memories of your mom and her everylasting love. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family.
