Luz, Muchos recuerdos guardo en mi corazón de Jax Florida, que junto con tú tía Anita participamos de los sueños qué tenías al llegar a esté país. Por cuestiones del destino tomamos rumbos distintos, pero cuándo tú prima Luz Amparo me cuenta de ti, inmediatamente te puse en mi lista de oraciones. Me mandaste un mensaje días antes que querías hablar conmigo esperaba ese momento desafortunadamente no tube el gusto. Él Señor te ha llevado porqué ya estabas lista. Él todo poderoso junto con su Madre te esperaron con alegría. Ahora mis oraciones van para tú hija a ninguna edad es fácil ver partir a la Madre. Mi sentido pésame para Lucia y toda la familia. Mucho cariño.

To Luz, To a beautiful woman in all the ways we recognize. You’re free now in the Spherics, no longer having taking on the physical turbulences and emotional overtones .. You take with you your favorite things: Your family’s love, and memory to all who’s lives you touched with your gratious nature.. May we all remember you in Harmony’s Grace.
till we all meet again.

Dear Luz, When I first met you in Bend, Oregon in 1995 I knew that you were very special and we had an instant connection toward each other. I will always remember your kindness towards others, your free-spirited nature and your natural bonding with children. I feel blessed that I was married to you for 22 years. You were and always will be the love and light of my life. I feel a deep sense of loss and sadness now that you have left this world. God had the right plan to relieve you of your suffering and bring you to the kingdom of eternal life. You are an angel Luz and I will sorely miss and love you as long as I shall live. May love, peace and happiness be with you always Luz. Rest in peace my beautiful, loving, caring Luz.
