    She was one of my best friends. We met many years ago at the San Diego Church. I have had a long and dear friendship with Aurora. I visited her through the years, and she came to my home a few times. We had many meals together, Bible studies, and picnic afternoons with friends. She talked with me in the last four years, about life, special events, her personal thoughts about it seems everything. She and I laughed and she was always gracious. I will deeply miss her. I know that she loved her children and grand children. She told me I could call her anytime and told her the same never hesitate to call me. I had the pleasure of knowing her for over 40 years. She had worries and fears like everyone and I am glad she felt comfortable talking with me about those things too. My joy is cut short for a time, but I will see her again, when Christ Comes to redeem us all. I send my love to her family and wish you a gracious recovery from your grief at this sad time. May God Bless you and keep you and give you peace and comfort. Romans Chapt.9 vs 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, neither angels or demons … will be able to separate us from the love of God …
