Geri and I attended Bethelehem Academy together. How well I remember all the fun we had especially doing our Senior Class Play, "Our Lady of Fatima"; she played Jacinta, the youngest of the three children, and I played Olimpia, her mother. She has now gone to The Father's House. May she rest in peace. You have my deepest sympathy. Barbara (Havel) Gastelum

We are so very saddened to hear of the passing of your Mom. One of our favorite vacation memories was fishing with your Mom and Dad in Canada. We are so sorry we will not be able to attend visitation or funeral as we are out of town. But please know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
