Para mí ha llegado la hora del sacrificio y se acerca el momento de mi partida. He combatido el buen combate, he terminado mi carrera, siempre fiel a la fe. Por lo demás, ya está preparada la corona de los santos con que me premiara el Señor en aquel día; el cómo justo juez, me la dará junto a todos aquellos que han deseado su venida gloriosa. — 2 Timoteo 4: 6-8
Dora Angelica Sepulveda, 88, daughter of Margarito and Guadalupe Gonzalez of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico died February 23, 2014 surrounded by her family after a prolonged illness.
Mrs. Sepulveda was a devoted mother and grandmother, who was widowed at a young age, and demonstrated great strength of character and grace to raise her three children as a single parent.
