BACA -- In Loving Memory of Rafaelita Baca September 2, 1930-October 5, 2005 Our Dear Heavenly Father, Please deliver this message to our Mother. It's been two years since her life on earth passed. To be in Heaven with our Lord and Savior at last. We love her so very much, and she is greatly missed. But we know she's in a place where no pain and suffering exist. She found a place in the shadow of Your wings. In Your Kingdom where there is so much beauty, and the choirs of angels sing. Where there are pearly gates, crystal waters, and gems of all kinds. There's nothing like that here on earth, you could ever find. For You have mended her broken spirit and made her body brand new. And when our journey is over, We know that You'll do the same for us too! Oh Lord, to You we pray, that You will continue to guide our family in Your righteous ways. In His Name, The Baca Family
