Es difícil aceptar esta perdida. Pero sabemos que El Señor se la llevó con El y que ella descansa. Fue un privilegio conocerla y compartir con ella. Seguiremos viviendo el legado que dejo en este mundo. Y recordarla siempre con mucho amor y un " Que Dios te Bendiga". ❤

My deepest condolences for the family. She was an amazing singer and pillar at church. I remember how beautifully she sang and how her voice lifted our spirits to continue trusting in God and overcoming obstacles. She is now with our Lord and Saviour. Psalms 23.

She was the most amazing mom. We talked every day. You are in heaven now. You no longer have to suffer and be in pain. I love you and I miss you so much. But ur in a better place.

My most beautiful caring grandmother... I love you so much, I miss you so much. I know that now you are not suffering of pain, you are with God now and I know you will be watching over every single one of us. I will always be thinking of you I love you mami.

Descanses en paz querida Amarias ya estas en Los brazos de Dios que te guardara por siempre y Quedaras en nuestra memoria amiga y hermana en Cristo.

Amaris was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and coworker! I have found memories of her. As a coworker she was always supportive and kind! As a mom and grandmother she made sure her children were well kept, and had their snacks. She is now with our Lord helping him as she helped us!

Que mis condolencias te porten consuelo y que mis oraciones aligeren tu dolor por esta pérdida.Mi gran sentido pésame
