Hortensia’s Trust & Faith in the Lord, always carried her through this Journey. She was constantly seeking God’s “Truth” and always had a desire to Serve. Throughout her life, she made a positive & loving impact on many, including those she briefly crossed paths with.
She always gave her unceasing support & offered so many encouraging words. At times, if you felt the world was against you, she was always with you, and for you.
Her constant Prayer, was that her “Family” always remain united. Her parting words, “Take care of one another.”
Hortensia took so much Love with her. Until we meet, again…
