Memories Timeline


  1. Profundamente apenado por su perdida,

    Sera possible que los muertos vuelvan a vivir?
    Lo que dice la biblia
    Va a haber esurreccion. (Hechos 24:15 , Traduccion del Nuevo Mundo)

    Jehova odia la muerte porque la ve como un enemigo ( 1 Corintios 15:26) Siente un profundo anhelo por eliminar a este enemigo y lo hara mediante la resurreccion.( Job 14:14,15 )

    La biblia llama a Dios "la fuente de la vida" (Salmo 36:9) Si fue capaz de darles vida a todas las criaturas, sin duda tiene el poder de devolversela a quien haya muerto.

  2. So Sorry to her about Nilda. She was such a nice lady, always tried to help you. I worked with her at Ehrhart Babic for many years. Always a smile, always pleasant. Be proud to call her your wife, mom, sister, grandma. Just a sweartheart. God Bless.

  3. "Ma", my heart is broken that you have left us, but it rejoices knowing that you are in Heaven with Pop. Thank you for the love that you gave me, I will always treasure it. Heaven received an Angel, because that is what you are. Love you always.

  4. So sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Nilda for many years at Ehrhart Babic. She was a pleasure to work with, always helpful, and I will remember her with a smile on her face.
    My sincerest sympathies to you all.

  5. It is with sympathy that I read of your loss. I never met Mrs Alvarez but I had the pleasure of working with her son Luis for many years in the Bergen County Prosecutors Office and if he is an example of his mother she was one great lady. My families thoughts and prayers will be with you during this time of sorrow. My God keep you all in the palm of his hand.y

  6. I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. May God almighty father of tender mercies and all comfort continue to strengthen you all (2 Corinthians 1: 3, 4). We all indeed look forward to the fulfillment of God's promise to completely remove death, tears, mourning, outcry and pain (Revelation 21:4). The Bible also provides assurance that in God's Kingdom, our dead loved ones will be brought back to life ( John 5:25). May these promises from God bring you comfort.
