“Today, I give back to God the awesome gift He gave me 29 years ago. A beautiful wife, to have and hold, we shared a lifetime of good memories while you were with me in this world. She gave me lots of love and support I ever could have wanted. She shared me with many people so God could touch their lives. Her smile was beautiful and I looked forward every day to seeing it. I saw her faith tested but she was a strong woman full of God’s understanding. I told her I don’t know what I would do without her, so she lived for me. I told her when our bodies struggle, we have to keep our eyes on Jesus. Yes, I wanted more memories, but she needed rest. My wife was an Angel to me; she watched over me every day and blessed me with her smile. I will not say goodbye, but rather say, rest my love, until I see you again. Love Orlando.”
In Loving Memory of Lisa A. Velasquez Cobos
Today, a beautiful woman has left us. A light from our family has gone and sadness fills our hearts.
No good-byes were said, only plenty of “I Love Yous” and kisses on your forehead were left instead.
We know your struggles here on Earth were long and hard but they’re over now, sister of mine, you’re finally home.
You were a blessing from God to each one of us. Although tears will flow, I give God thanks and praise for the memories I have of our time together.
You were always there to lend a helping hand, always putting others before yourself, even when your own times got rough, you were still always thinking about us. You fought all the way to the end and for that, I give God thanks and praise again.
But now you can rest, sister of mine. No more pain, peace at last you’re finally home.
I only wish I could see you one more time to thank you for the love and joy you brought into our lives. Just know you are forever loved.
You are and always will be forever in my heart, sister of mine. 11/25/13
