Memories Timeline


  1. My condolences to the Aguirre families. I’m sorry to hear about the loss of dear Louisa. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: “Your dead ones will live…They will rise up”. And the Bible also says “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will forever reside upon it”. Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ’s ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering. I hope that that these scriptures will be of some comfort to you.

  2. To the Aguirre family, I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom, grandma, great grandma, my heart goes out to all of you losing a loved one is so difficult for any family my prayers are with all of you. Craig and Shelley Schulle

  3. I have been a client of Delia’s since 1994, and consider her a (very tolerant) friend. Over the years she talked about her Mom, and I appreciated the bond she shared with her mother.
    Delia, I am so sorry for your loss. Our deepest sympathy, old friend.

    Godspeed Louisa, and God Bless.

  5. Dolores Juarez
    There are certain people who touch the lives of those they know in a unique way. Knowing them brings us joy and inspiration. As her extraordinary Eucharistic Minister, I was encouraged by her willingness to hear the word of God as she received the Holy Eucharist. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.
