  • My deepest condolences to the Ortega family. Mrs. Ortega and I had become close friends since August 2013. We kept in close contact and I was deeply saddened upon learning of her passing. She was a wonderful lady and I truly loved her. I last spoke to her on Thursday, August 13 and she told me she had written me a letter and would mail the next day. Apparently she did not mail, because I have not received. I will certainly miss her and continue to pray for her. She was always concerned about my health and told me she loved me. I always felt good after hearing from her. Such a great, loving and caring lady! You were blessed to have such a beautiful Mother and Grandmother. May God Bless all of you.

  • May Bernice’s family and friends be comforted by God’s promise to “swallow up death forever…and wipe away the tears from all faces” (Isaiah 25:8). Along with the promise of a time soon when ‘no resident will say ” I am sick” (Isaiah 33:24) “Remember the Resurrection hope for both righteous and unrighteous” (Acts 24:15)

  • My deepest condolences to the entire Ortega Family. I just heard of your loss yesterday and I am so sad that I was unable to attend the funeral and pay my respects to the Ortega Family. Your mother was a sweet and caring lady who had only goodness in her heart. She will be truly missed, but Heaven will be the a better place because she is there. May God Bless you all and your pain be slight because you know she is with God looking down at us and looking out for us. Betty and Dave I am truly sorry for your loss…Steve and Deb Ybarra
