Memories Timeline


  1. We will miss you and your words of wisdom and soft voice. Thank you for comforting me during Rudys time in the hospital. Love you and say hello to Rudy for me❤️ RIP granny

  2. My condolences to the Delgado families I’m sorry to hear about the loss of dear Rebecca. 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 these scriptures will be of some comfort to you.

  3. Jacobia and I love you Abuelita! We enjoyed the time we were able to spend with you! We will miss hearing your sweet voice. You will be missed.

  4. How can I write just one memory, with such a wonderful amazing lady like Rebecca you can never have just one! She was always with a smile and had the biggest best hugs to give. She always remembered who I was but called me the wrong name we always laughed about that! 😊 She was the type of woman I want to be like when I’m older always loved by everyone and always had love to give. Rebecca you will be deeply missed and your spirit will live on 😘

  5. “Why couldn’t you wait 1 more day, to have Grandma’s birthday Reina”
    I miss you Grandma. I still remember when you are the napkin thinking it was a tortilla and you weren’t giving it up for nothing!

  6. Dear Becky and family,
    Please accept our sincere condolences at the passing of your beloved mother. We pray for your peace and know she lives on in your hearts.
    God Bless,
    Mike and Libby Rust
