In loving Memory of Maria M. Perales

Maria touched our lives with a sweet smile, open arms and always standing tall with grace and charm.  She took life in stride, embracing the happy moments along with the sad.  Her presence made the world a kinder, happier place with a heart of gold she helped. The need in life’s race sharing God’s word was her real delight. Loving her family made her world right.  Nothing can ever take Maria away, holding her in our hearts makes her stay.

Home Health and Hospice Cima for all the special care and attention.

Reciban nuestras condolencias. Sabemos que el perder a un ser querido en la muerte es muy doloroso por eso queremos compartir con ustedes el consuelo que Dios nos da mediante las escrituras. Por ejemplo Dios nos promete mejores condiciones para el futuro sercano. Por ejemplo Dios nos promete eliminar la muerte y devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos hayan muerto. En su ejemplar de la Biblia podrán buscar lo que dice Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 ahí dice que "Dios limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más". Y en Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurrección". Entonces vemos que todo cambiara para nuestro beneficio ya que Jehova Dios eliminará toda la maldad y el sufrimiento.

Cousins, May your Mom's memory give you Strength and the Love she gave you continue in your hearts, during this difficult time. My memory of your Mom, my Madrina, will forever be in my Heart. Though years have taken us on different paths - married life, having children, and living our own lives, it is moments like these that we are reminded how important Family is. My Mom will forever love her. Love your cousin, Barbara (Flores) Siller
