    My warmest condolences, Death leaves a heartache no human can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. I found comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 "those in memorial tombs will come out" He promises that we will be able to see our loved ones again. What a wonderful hope! We anxiously await the day when we will no longer lose those we love. May this bible thoughts bring you comfort at this most difficult time.

    Our sincerest condolences to the Mejia family. I love you all dearly despite not seeing you often and I pray that you will find peace in your minds and hearts knowing Tia Juana lived a long blessed life. She was always well cared for by you all and I know she is looking down smiling at all her boys. Take care of each other because family is all we have in this world. God bless you all and your families as well.

    With love,
