Siento mucho la pérdida de su querida Angela. La muerte de un ser querido trae mucho dolor y sufrimiento. Que le consuele lo que Dios dice en Revelación 21:4 "Y Dios limpiará toda lágrima de sus ojos, y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya más lamento ni clamor ni dolor. Las cosas anteriores han pasado”. Llegará el día que nadie muera. Mientras tanto que la esperanza de la resurrección, según lo explica Juan 5:28,29 le dé consuelo.

Por favor acepte nuestras más sentidas condolencias.

God be with each one of you always. I remember that Angie thought I was Felix's girlfriend until Felix told her that I was his first-cousin . She told me she hated me seeing me dance with Felix. I miss those family reunions held for so many years with the Castanon- Cuevas families. Angie and Felix were truly blessed in their marriage and family. Vaya con Dios Prima. Condolences from the Cuevas-Rios family.
