Nuestras mas sentido pesame para toda la familia Velasquez. Van a ser unos dias muy pesados en sus corazones, para toda su familia y amistades. No hay palabras que sean suficientes para que no sientan tanto dolor pero con la voluntad de Dios nuestro señor vendran dias mas ligeros para sus corazones. Desde la distancia los acompañamos en su dolor.
Atentamente,

Blanca Lopez y familia

Very few times in our lives do we come across people who leave a special print our heart. Sra. Maria was one of those people. She was an amazingly loving and unconditional mother. To know her was to instantly love her. Her humble heart won you over everytime. She treated everyone with kindness and understanding. Her heart and doors were always open to everyone and anyone. She will be truly missed. God and the Heavens are a little brighter because they have gained a genuinely amazing angel.

Spread your glowing wings freely for you have earned them. Rest in peace... until we meet again. 💖 C~

Mrs. Velasquez was one of the kindest, loving and most humble human being I had the pleasure of knowing growing up. She was like a mother figure to her children’s friends . If you needed to be reprimanded, you could count on her to do it. She believed in always doing the right thing no matter what. Heaven has gained an angel. May her beautiful soul Rest In Peace and our lord give her family the strength to carry on this great loss. ❤️
Sincerely,
Teresa
