Dear Danny and Bobby,
Please accept my condolences for your recent loss.
The Santillan family is certainly a founding pillar of our community, and, for that, we are thankful for all of its contributions.

I knew Mrs. Santillan's brother, Brother Felipe O'Campo, and his wife Alice; they were close to my family and I even helped them a brief period with their children's ministry which they loved very much. He used to talk about how special his family was to him, his parents and siblings. I'm sure Mrs. Santillan must have enjoyed a wonderful life alongside her parents and siblings; and was very proud of her own family. I have a picture of me and my siblings when we were children that her father Don Felipe O'Campo took many many years ago. It stands proudly in my living room and reminds me of our beautiful childhood days when we lived in Brawley, and the happy years when we attended The First Mexican Baptist Church, and all the people there who made a big impression on my life, the pastor and his family and the wonderful congregation that made you feel like a close family member! My prayers and sincere condolences to Mrs. Santillan's family. May you hold on to the precious memories you have of her; I'm sure she is rejoicing today, now that she has been reunited with her loved ones whom she dearly missed. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Santillan.

Our deepest heartfelt condolences on the loss of our dear Aunt Lydia. She was our last elder out of all the O'Campo siblings. I'm so sorry and my heart goes out to Auntie's children, grandchildren, Santillan families and O'CAMPO families. May God give you strength and comfort at this difficult time.
