Imelda Ragasa Barta (Ragasa)
Hello, my name is Jonathan Jimenez from Bergenfield, New Jersey. Napakasakit pag namatayan tayo ng isang minamahal sa buhay. Nakikiramay din po ako dahil namatay ang isang malapit na kaibigan ko 2 weeks ago. Pero nasumpungan ko po ang tunay na kaaliwan sa pangako ng Diyos sa Juan 5:28, 29 na darating ang panahon kung kailan bubuhaying-muli sila at makikita natin sila sa isang paraisong lupa. Nangangako din ang Diyos na darating ang panahon kung kailan aalisin Niya ang kamatayan dito sa lupa at mawawala ang lahat ng sakit at kirot (Apocalipsis 21:3, 4). I extend my sincerest condolences for your family in this hard time and share the Bible’s hope that helps us endure. Feel free to respond at my email address.
Imelda will be missed with her Avon friends. I really looked forward in talking with her at the meetings. She was a hugh help to me.I will miss her greatly. nancy Osborn ( Marina, Ca.)
Imelda is going to be missed by the Filipino-American Community.
To her family we offer these words of consolation, an Irish Blessing:
May you see God's light on the path ahead.
When the road you walk is dark,
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard, may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone.
And may you always remember
when the shadows fall—
You do not walk alone.
Danny & Pett Aranton and Members of the Philippine-American Cultural Society
Imelda, You will be missed by all of us at St. Francis Xavier. Your presence in the choir was noticeable. Now your absence is even more noticeable. May God bless you and receive you into his hands for all that you have done during your stay on earth. May the Angels guide you and lead you to eternal happiness to live and enjoy God the Father, Jesus his Son and the Holy Spirit. Love always, Walter Washington, Choir Director P.S. As we sing the Lord is my Shepherd, we will think of you.
