De parte de la familia Jesus V. Garza, Port Clinton, que las memorias que han hecho con su hermano Gonzalo les ayude durante estos dias tristes.
I would like to send my condolences to the Popoca family. It is so difficult when we lose a loved one in death. It is nice to cherish the memory of our loved one. I have found that God gives me the power beyond what is normal to deal with my grief. (Phil. 4:13) I also rely on God help to make it through difficult times We read in Ps. 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength. A help readily to be found in times of distress.” May you find comfort in the God of all comfort. (2 Cor. 1:3,4) I hope this will bring you some hope at this difficult time.
