Abuelito is gone

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Antonio Chicas Velasquez, my father-in-law who left this life today at his home in El Salvador while we were praying for him at Mass. My husband's father was 74 and had chronic obstructive breathing disorder. 
Antonia met us in 2004 when Christina was a baby. He taught her to walk, patiently walking her over and over again across the living room floor. The two spent hours together on the floor with Lego blocks, and she always loved it when he would push her on the swings.
God have mercy on your soul, suegro, may the angels lead you into paradise.
Vaya con dios.

I will remember Antonio in my prayers tonight at Mass.

God bless you all!

Today is St. Therese's birthday - I'm sure she met him and escorted him into Paradise.....

Prayers for your family and especially Francisco.. I remember you telling me how hard it was for him to be so far away from his father at this time... I can relate. May his father rest in peace. God bless you all.
