My condolences to the Ramirez family for the loss of Eva Ramirez. Life might seem dark and bleak at the moment but know to that you will all meet again in Heaven. From the stories I heard, she was a wonderful woman with a big heart and strong faith. May you rest in peace God's Garden God looked around his garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth, And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering, He knew that you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered “Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you But you did not go alone… For part of us went with you The day God called you home. Author: D. W.

Dearest George and the whole Ramirez family. May our dear lord welcome her into the light of his presence. God be with you. Here is a poem that I think expresses how your mother (sister, aunt, etc.) feels right now: I am always with you. When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do, You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears, But be thankful we had so many good years. I gave you my love, and you can only guess How much you've given me in happiness. I thank you for the love that you have shown, But now it is time I traveled on alone. So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must Then let your grief be comforted, comforted by trust That it is only for a while that we must part, So treasure the memories within your heart. I won't be far away for life goes on. And if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see or touch me, I will always be near And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear All my love around you, soft and clear And then, when you come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home”

My continued condolences for the entire Ramirez family. My prayers will continue to be with you all during this most difficult time. Tia Eva will be missed but its comforting to know that through her unwavering faith in God she suffers no more and is with your beloved Dad and our aunts and uncles. I"m wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold dear in your hearts.

I wish you condolences, though I know that not all wounds are quickly healed, and sometimes words cannot console - not because our Faith is weak, but because the loss we experienced was real. Because a beautiful life, the life of a loved one, a burning light, is gone. And no matter what we believe about what happens next, that person is missed. And we miss her because we love her and look forward to seeing her again. I wish you comfort, but I also hope everyone experiencing this loss will feel comfortable enough to grieve with sincerity however each needs for as long as each needs. Sending love and sympathy to all bereaved until all are reunited forever.

Rene - My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. I hope the poem attached gives you and your family comfort in knowing that mom is in a better place. May her soul continue to rest in eternal peace. Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God has chosen for me. I took His hand when I heard him call; I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way; I've now found peace at the end of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss; Oh yes, these things, I too will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow Look for the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much; Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seems all to brief; Don't lengthen your pain with undue grief. Lift up your heart and peace to thee, God wanted me now-He set me free

May this light that shines continue until we reach our eternal home and then once again we will reunite as we were as one family. You were always loved in life and I will continue to love you to the end of my time. Your brother........................ALFREDO

Sentimos mucho la pérdida de su ser querido por eso queremos compartir con ustedes el consuelo que Dios nos da mediante las escrituras. Por ejemplo Dios nos promete eliminar la muerte, en Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que “Dios limpiara toda lagrima de los ojos y la muerte o será más”. Y Hechos 24:15 habla de “una resurrección”. Jehova Dios nuestro amoroso creador muy pronto acabara con toda la maldad y el sufrimiento, ademas nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
