BLESSING, LARRY DEAN "D.B." M.D. Our beloved Larry Blessing "DB" went Home to be with Jesus on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Larry was born in Bethany, Missouri to William Vodra and Lenora Bernice (Salmon) Blessing on October 23, 1942. Larry married Mary Jane Cox in 1959 and graduated with honors from Harrison High School in 1960. He received a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Biology and earned a Medical Doctor's degree from University of Missouri, Columbia in 1974. He attended the University of Kansas from 1974 through 1977 for his Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine. Following that, he returned to the University of Missouri for a Fellowship in Gastroenterology from 1977-1978. Larry was a dedicated doctor to his patients, loved being a physician and truly enjoyed his many years of practice. Those who worked with Dr. Blessing adored and admired him and were his dearest friends. He began blessing and saving lives in Albany, Missouri, continued his career in Morgantown, West Virginia and ultimately moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico where he finished his career as Chief Gastroenterologist at Lovelace Medical Center. After a long and satisfying career, Dr. Blessing retired in 1999 and within the same year became accepted as a member of The National Registry Of Who's Who. Larry's heart was remarkably big as he was a dear brother, husband, father, step-father, grandfather, and surrogate to those who needed a father. Larry had a grand sense of humor and wouldn't watch a movie without a bucket of buttered popcorn by his side. Larry spent his retirement years serving and loving his church family. Larry loved gardening and fondly reminisced on his years as a farmer; his tomatoes, sweet corn and green chile were unbeatable. Larry is survived by his loving wife of 17 years, Janet Blessing; his children, Christopher (Debbie) Blessing, Roxanna (Larry) Braaten, Paul (Sharon) Blessing, Brian Blessing, Samantha (Michael) Gabaldon and Chris (Lori) Partain; as well as 13 grandchildren; one great- grandchild and another Blessing expected to arrive next year. Larry D. Blessing was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Leta (Blessing) Landes; brother, Charles Blessing; sister, Beverly (Blessing) Shipers; and nephew, Gregory Blessing.

BRAY, LILA MAY (LEWIS) The second child of eight, Lila May (Lewis) Bray was born in Elkhart, KS, December 5, 1927 to the late Clifford Hugh Gilbert Lewis and Thelma Fay (Dorris) Lewis. The family alternately moved between New Mexico, Kansas and California while Lila was growing up during the Great Depression. On April 1, 1949, Lila married Orval Leonard Bray in California, and there they added four children to their family. In 1978, the family moved back to New Mexico to be nearer to some of Lila's siblings who were her comfort when Orval passed away in 1981. A joy-filled Christian, quiet and loving, with a great sense of humor, yet an expressive mind of her own, Lila enjoyed reading and playing games with her family, attending church and hosting bible studies, as well as being a member of a bowling league and a crocheting club. However, if asked, Lila would tell you her greatest joy was being a wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother and great-grandmother, sister and aunt. All who knew her unanimously agree that she had a gift for always making them feel loved and accepted. Lila dealt bravely with the trial of vascular dementia for the past eight years, alternately living with her daughters in Las Vegas, NV and Los Alamos, NM for the last six. She was mercifully healed at her eldest daughter's home on June 27, 2014 surrounded by her family's love, when she was peacefully ushered to her final home with her Savior Jesus Christ. She will continue to be greatly missed until we meet her there. She is survived by four children: Evelyn Fay Castillo (husband Robert Castillo) of Las Vegas, NV; Jeffrey Bray (ex-wife Marian Flandrick) of Rio Rancho, NM; Thomas Ned Bray (wife Connie Bray) of Gresham, OR; Heather Cunico (husband Craig Cunico) of Los Alamos, NM; ten grandchildren: Lukas Castillo (Christian); Rebekah Castillo; Timothy Castillo (Brittany) of NV; Andrew Castillo (Faith) of NJ; James Bray of OR; Piper Bray, and Domenic, Logan, Macklin and Gabriel Cunico of NM; great- grandchildren: Christopher, Nathan, Joshua, Hannah and Miriam Castillo and Angelica Ricarte. Lila was preceded in death by her sister Patsy Webster. Surviving siblings are: Hugh (Betty) Lewis; Henry (Liz) Lewis; Ronald Lewis; Rex (Sharon) Lewis; Karen (LeRoy) Ortega; and Thelma-Ann (Edward) Wilson; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial celebration of Lila's life will be held at 3:00 pm July 27, 2014, Crossroads Bible Church, 97 East Rd., Los Alamos, NM 87544. Cremains will be interred at the Santa Fe National Cemetery. The family thanks all who have expressed their caring concern and memories, and asks that in lieu of flowers, please send any honors to either Nathan Adelson Hospice Foundation - 4141 Swenson St., Las Vegas, NV 89119, or Los Alamos Visiting Nurses and/or Hospice House- 2202 Canyon Rd., Los Alamos, NM 87544.

But I hope you can see that here is still a deep eternal love for you we cannot hide. All of our love, Your family Carol, Julie, Janelle, Josh, Joshua Jr., Sophia
