Estimada familia Carrales,
Quisiera expresarle mi más sentido pésame y compartir una escritura que me a ayudado a mi personalmente al enfrentar la pérdida de mis seres queridos. Se encuentra en Isaías 26:19- “Tus muertos vivirán. Cadáver mío.⁠.⁠. se levantarán. ¡Despierten y clamen gozosamente, residentes del polvo! Porque tu rocío es como el rocío de malvas, y la tierra misma dejará que hasta los que están impotentes en la muerte caigan [en nacimiento].” Jehova promete devolverle la vida a nuestros seres queridos que han fallecido. Tengan la firme confianza de que así será. Jehová cumplirá todas sus promesas.

Rita was such a kind person. She was so helpful to me when I was going to college. I lived with them while I attended the College in Edinburg for my basic courses. I have always fell so close to her and loved her lots. I know she is in a better place especially with the illness she endured. She will always live in my heart, she was special. Love Maria Diaz
