Paz De Cristo,
Our Prayers and Condolences to the whole family during this time of sorrow.
Levantaré mis ojos a los montes;
¿de dónde vendrá mi socorro?
2 Mi socorro viene del Señor,
que hizo los cielos y la tierra.
3 No permitirá que tu pie resbale;
no se adormecerá el que te guarda.
4 He aquí, no se adormecerá ni dormirá
el que guarda a Israel.
Presious Memories, to always remember.
Dios Les Bendiga y Con Muncho Amor.
