          Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Celebration Service will be held on Saturday, May 27, 2017, at Desert Springs Lutheran Church, 685 N Caballo Rd., at 1:00 PM.  Immediately following the service, the American Legion Post 44, 1005 NM-195, Elephant Butte, NM will be hosting a reception.

    May fond memories of Betty bring you comfort during this hard time in your life. Look back on all the good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these before she passed away. My hearts and prayers go out to you and your family. God has promised us that we will soon be reunited with our loved ones. “There is going to be a resurrection,” the Bible confirms at Acts 24:15. “Do not be amazed at this,” Jesus assures us, “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28, 29)

    Buenos dias mi nombre es Ana se que usted y su familia no me conoce pero solo quiero darles mis condolencias a usted y su familia por la perdida de su ser amado, se lo que es pasar por una perdida así y por eso me gustaria compartir con usted una promesa biblica que me a ayudado mucho cuando e perdido un ser querido en la muerte, y es la premesa esperanzadora que aparece en el texto bíblico de Revelación 21:4 donde dios nos promete que muy pronto acabará con la muerte y todas las cosas que nos causan clamor y dolor pasaran por siempre, entiendo si le cuesta creer en esta promesa pues solo conocemos sobre las resurrecciones que hizo Jesucristo y ninguno de las personas que vivieron en su tiempo viven hoy para decirnos, yo las vi y creo en ellas,pero la biblia es un libro que da detalles de las promesas que dios nos hace para ayudarnos a mejorar nuestra vida y en ella misma dice que él es un dios que no puede mentir pues en él no se encuentra ningun engaño ,asi que ¡cuanto consuelo nos da estas promesas esperanzadoras que el nos hace! A mi y mi familia nos han ayudado mucho a sentir y creer que nuestros seres amados solo estan dormidos en la muerte y pronto vamos a volver a estar juntos y esto nos llena de consuelo, de todo corazón lo acompaño a usted y su familia en su dolor, no olvide que dios en su infinito amor y bondad jamas se olvidará de ustedes y les traera consuelo, tenga buen día
