Tío Padrino Raul , Lo encomiendo a Dios ,creador del cielo y la Tierra.. Que descanse en los brazos del Señor ,quien fue el que lo formó . Y a Santa María y Los Ángeles y todos los Santos le den la bienvenida . Ahora que a partido de este mundo . Que Cristo que fue crucificado por usted le traiga libertad y paz . Que Cristo que murió por usted lo admita en su jardín del paraíso . Que Cristo el verdadero pastor lo abrace como uno de sus rebaños. Que él perdone todos sus pecados y lo coloqué en los elegidos … Descanse en Paz Tío Padrino Raul Lo vamos a extrañar mucho tío , lo quisimos mucho tío y padrino y siempre lo vamos a querer y lo llevaremos siempre en nuestros corazones 💕 Gracias por todo Tío Padrino Raul 🙏🤍🕊🌷😘 Miguel y Diana Zamarripa y Fam.🤍
