Ageda Nunez

God saw Ageda was getting tired and cure was not to be... So he put his arm around her and whispered `Come with me'. With tearful eyes we watched her suffer and saw her fade away.

Although we loved her dearly, we couldn't make her stay. A gold heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best.

We would like to express our most sincere appreciation to all the wonderful people that were with us during our time of sorrow. We like to say thank you for all the food, flowers, kindness, prayers and hope that some day we can thank each of you personally.
