Lupita was a devoted, loving, and selfless woman. She was a daughter, mother, and grandmother that is cherished by all of her family and friends. Lupita was a hard-working, steadfast, devoted employee of HEB for 29yrs. She was a beautiful soul that loved with a huge heart, willing to help anyone who needed it. She loved our father God that undoubtedly has already welcomed her into his kingdom. The heavens have gained an angel, and we know she will always be at our side. We love you mom, we were blessed to have your guiding light shine in our lives while you were here on this Earth. May you rest in eternal peace.

Mi profunda pésame para toda la familia que ha perdido su ser querido. Se personalmente cuan difícil es perder un familiar . Pero el Dios de todo consuelo nos puede dar las fuerzas para sobrellevar este dolor. 2 Corintios 1:3,4.” Padre de tiernas misericordias.. Que nos consuela en toda nuestra tribulación “.

Aurora, Manuel, Andres, Raul and family. My heart broke hearing the news of your dear mom, Lupita. I never expected her to go so quickly. I thank God that she didn't suffer more than necessary and that she is home now with Our Lord. I know how much you will miss her and how difficult it will be to not have her here, but just know that she is always with you in spirit and in your hearts. God bless you and know that I am always here for you when you need someone to talk to. I loved her very much and love you too. Your Tia Rosi

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 en Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que “Dios limpiará toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya mas lamento ni clamor ni dolor”. Y en Hechos 24:15 habla de “una resurrección”. Estas promesas nuestro amoroso creador Jehova Dios las cumplirá, limpiará la tierra eliminando todo tipo de maldad y de sufrimiento, ademas nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.

So sorry for you loss, Memito, Aurorita, Andres & Raul, & family. I was not able to attend services since I'm living in San Antonio now. However, I was happy to say goodbye to Lupita when I visited her at the hospital last week. Your Mom was a loving and kind lady & I will always treasure my memories of her. With love, your cousin Norma (Ramirez Salinas)
