They also leave behind 19 grandchildren, 38 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren. Jesus and Petra shared 67 wonderful years together. Jesus worked for the City of Houston for 27 years and retired at the age of 85. Jesus took pride in his work. Petra was a devoted mother, wife and grandmother who raised her children and grandchildren with their beloved dog Cuyo by their side. They grew tired and became ill simultaneously. Jesus passed first and Petra passed less than an hour later. Their love is unlike any other. After 67 years as husband and wife God decided to unite them again at the gates of heaven where they no longer feel pain but feel their love and the love they have left behind. We love you Mami Petra and Papi Chuy. The family will receive visitors at the chapel of Felix H. Morales Funeral Home on Sunday April 6th, 2008 from 2pm to 9pm and Monday, April 7th from 9am to 9pm.
