Padilla -- Perhaps you brought or served food. Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a floral piece, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words as any friends could say; perhaps you were not there at all, just thought or prayed for us that day. Whatever part the Lord had you play to console our hearts, we thank you so much and may He bless each one of you. The family of Elsie Chavez Padilla. French Mortuary, Wyoming Blvd. Chapel, 7121 Wyoming Blvd. NE.
