Queridos Arturo, Lourdes y demás familia de Divina. Aunque no pude acompañarlos personalmente en estos momentos de dolor, por haber estado ausente de Houston visitando a mi hija en Michigan, espiritualmente me he mantenido unido al dolor de ustedes. Con muchos cariños Ramón Merino.

Arturo and family, we just want to let you know how much we will miss "Divine." She was a spectacular woman and we could only imagine the feast that is taking place upon her arrival to heaven. We always hear about the lives of the saints and it always seems like they are so far away from us. Divina was a saint and very close to our hearts. We are very proud to have known her. It is sad to say good bye to her, but it is comforting to know that her spirit lives on. We will rejoice with her and the Father of us all in eternity. It will be an unending agape!!! Christ is risen!!!

Dear Arturo and Family,
It is a blessing to have known Divina. I have always admired how she lived her life. She is an inspiration to me as a wife, a mother and as someone who would like to be a Christian. I know she prayed for us here and that she will continue to in heaven. Our condolences on your loss, we know you loved her dearly.
May the peace of Christ be with you,
Michelle and Fernando Guzman and children
